About

We will be heading to BodyMindLife Surry Hills in Sydney, Australia for the Myofascial Release Immersion. Taught by Tiffany Cruikshank, this training will look at myofascial release techniques and the application within the yoga setting.

This 4-day, 25-hour immersion is a great way for our teachers and dedicated practitioners to join an advanced short course without having to commit to prolonged periods away from work or long plane journeys. The price of these immersion trainings includes the training tuition only, making it accessible for local teachers or those who want to find their own food and accommodations. Each day will feature a daily 2-hour morning practice relevant to the course content and follow with afternoon training lectures and a short evening homework assignment to help you retain the information.
