At last, 100-hour Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training!

Designed for yoga teachers, therapists, body workers and health care professionals

Offered in three, 30-hour in class modules, and 10 hours of out-of-class assignment

Therapeutic yoga is a holistic practice that helps your students move out of pain and live more fully. You will learn how to recognize poor posture in your students, and how to help them coun-ter faulty movement patterns with aligned asana. Not only poor physical habits but an array of health issues can be addressed or alleviated using yoga therapeutics. We will apply universal principles of yoga on an individual basis to serve all beings including those with specific health conditions, challenges, physical limitations or injury recovery. Our practices approach the body prescriptively and personally so that we help facilitate a greater flow of energy and health in each student.

Lead facilitator is Kelly Haas, Internationally Associated Yoga Therapist. She is one of few certified yoga therapists in the Gulf Region. Kelly has nearly two decades teaching experience, and she will orchestra and guide you through the entire training.

Guest facilitator & assistant, Katherine Wilder, will offer a posture analysis clinic and functional anatomy throughout the training to teach us how to train our eyes and interpret what we are see-ing and what symptoms are present. Then, through the lens of yoga, Kelly and Katherine will create and adapt asana sequences to best balance individuals. You will be an integrated part of the process!

Katherine Wilder is a licensed massage therapist, integrative body worker, and has years of experience teaching functional anatomy and physiology at Southeastern School of Neuromuscular Massage. She currently has a thriving private massage practice in West Palm Beach, FL.

Guest facilitator, Lauren Shepley, is a board-certified Physical Therapist who specializes in Women’s Health and Pelvic Floor Therapy in New Orleans, LA. She will present on female anatomy, pelvic floor health, and women’s menstrual cycles. Kelly and Lauren will present asana sequence and modifications for women’s cycles.
