SPINE INTENSIVE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING (60 HOURS)
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA | JULY 8-13, 2019
We are excited to visit San Diego, California, for a six-day urban intensive training. This Spine Intensive Yoga Teacher Training will be hosted on the University of California San Diego campus during the joyous summertime. If you haven’t visited California before, this is the perfect occasion for your first visit!
This training — Spine: Anatomy, Dysfunction & Application — is part of our core orthopedic curriculum, making it an ideal experience for teachers who want to expand their anatomy knowledge and incorporate anatomically-aware sequencing into their teaching. In the Spine Intensive Yoga Teacher Training, lead teacher Tiffany Cruikshank will guide you through a deeper look into the anatomy and biomechanics of the spine as a basis and give you the tools to evaluate spinal functionality. Throughout practice and lecture, we will assess the spine’s mobility, common injuries, and types of dysfunction alongside an exploration of how to identify these issues within a yoga context. After completing this training you will leave with a robust understanding of the spine’s anatomy and how you can apply this knowledge to provide your yoga students with a stronger, safer, and more well-rounded approach to spinal integrity within a therapeutic yoga application.
