MYOFASCIAL RELEASE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING (60 HOURS)
CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA | APRIL 7-12, 2019
We are excited to bring our urban style retreat to Charleston, South Carolina, one of the country’s most beloved and historic cities. This advanced yoga teacher training on the multifaceted function of fascia will take place during Charleston’s blissful springtime. If you haven’t visited South Carolina before, this is the perfect occasion for your first visit!
The Myofascial Release Yoga Teacher Training offers an in-depth look at the science behind the role of fascia and use of self-myofascial release techniques within a yoga setting. In this yoga teacher training, we will dive into the current understanding of the fascia by examining the function and dysfunction of the fascia in conjunction with therapeutic application 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.

WHO IS THIS FOR?
For teachers dedicated to a higher standard of learning looking to deepen their knowledge.
This 60-hour advanced yoga teacher training is for any individual wanting to incorporate myofascial release techniques in their yoga practice within a therapeutic setting or as a supplement to other related movement/mobility concentrations (bodyworkers, coaches, physical therapists, etc.). Every participant is actively working with students and clients in a yoga, therapeutic or athletic setting.
We believe that an experienced teacher is a key component in our healthcare network and with our credentials, people know they have a teacher who is knowledgeable and experienced. Teachers who attend this advanced yoga teacher training have the ability to focus on a deeper understanding of western anatomy and physiology and its application to the traditional yoga philosophy. We train our teachers to understand the body and the practice so that they can understand how to apply the practice to the individual with any style or level of practice to create personalized therapeutic yoga sessions.

The format of the yoga teacher training week will be familiar: each day begins with a 2.5-hour morning practice and ends with a more restorative practice in the evening to tie together the course content of the day. There will be daily yoga teacher training lectures in the morning and afternoon along with evening homework to help you retain the information. On each full day, the group will enjoy a healthy breakfast together and midday coffee breaks. Unlike our other trainings in remote locations, this training is located in the famed Charleston Historic District at the Homewood Suites by Hilton. So we will have long lunch breaks to give you time to stroll to an array of nearby bistros, healthy cafes and diners for lunch. Each day will wrap up in time for dinner so you will have the evening to experience Charleston’s charm.
Myofascial Release Yoga Teacher Training (60 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.
This week will focus on myofascial release techniques with a morning practice to incorporate some of the myofascial release techniques 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, physical therapists, etc.)
This yoga teacher training counts as 60 hours towards those pursuing their 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.
