Recommended Education Path

While each online course stands on its own and has no pre-requisite, you may consider the following information to get the most out of your experience. If you have not yet take my foundational courses Yoga Biomechanics and Asana and Beyond Yoga Alignment, they will lay a foundation and help you get the most out of all my other work.

Building on your foundational training, this and my Mobility-Based Conditioning course will explore and teach specific methods of working with and improving range of motion.

In my years of working with teachers, recurring themes emerge which result in specialty courses. My courses Hypermobility and Yoga and The Incredible SI Joint dive deeply into these areas giving teachers a rich toolset and understanding to support their students.
