MYOFASCIAL RELEASE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING (55 HOURS)
SEDONA, ARIZONA | NOVEMBER 1-8, 2020
Join us in Sedona 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.
This course takes place at a destination familiar to Yoga Medicine — the Sedona Mago Retreat Center in Arizona. This retreat center is located in the high desert surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes so you have a nice getaway from your day-to-day routine during this yoga teacher training in Sedona. Enjoy locally sourced, delicious meals designed daily by the on-site chefs. We hope to see you there!

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.).
This yoga teacher training counts as 55 hours towards your 500-hour/1000-hour Yoga Medicine certification. Directly following the yoga teacher training you will be invited to take a short, online quiz to receive your certificate of completion.
