Join us for Yoga Medicine’s Myofascial Release yoga teacher training that will be led by Tiffany Cruikshank with support from a team of Yoga Medicine Registered Therapeutic Specialists — Allie Geer, Erica Yeary and Megan Kearney. Together, our expert teachers will guide you through this invaluable training using asana practices, daytime lectures, and case studies to create an in-depth, hands-on learning experience.
The Myofascial Release yoga teacher training offers an in-depth look at the science behind the role of fascia and use of myofascial release techniques within a yoga setting. In this ttraining, we will discuss the most recent research on fascia and examine the function and dysfunction of the fascia in conjunction to therapeutic techniques. We will identify common areas and trigger points in the body that with simple, mindful self-application can be a great tool for working with yoga students and private clients alike.

Directly following the yoga teacher training you will be invited to take an online exam to receive your certificate of completion and training hours. These hours will still be recognized by Yoga Alliance as well, click here to read more about their guidelines on online training hours.
Myofascial Release Yoga Teacher Training (55 Hours)
This yoga teacher training is a great adjunct to the yoga practice for those with injuries or restrictions and a great combination to the orthopedic yoga teacher trainings (hip, spine, shoulder, extremities) when taken before or after to integrate the information and apply it in a more effective way.
The yoga teacher training week will focus on myofascial release techniques with a morning practice to incorporate some of the myofascial release in a moderate vinyasa setting and a short restorative class in the evenings. In between you will have a morning and afternoon lecture. This yoga teacher training is open to anyone looking to use myofascial release in their yoga practice, within a therapeutic setting or as an adjunct to other complimentary movement/mobility specialities (bodyworkers, coaches, PTs, etc.).
