36hrs: This four weekend training offers overarching concepts of Anusara Yoga Therapeutics, providing the practical information needed to navigate and effectively support the therapeutic needs of students and to safely manage their injuries. The teachers are given specific routines for common injuries and symptoms that students bring to class. There is time to practice and assimilate these routines.
Since Jackie had a serious bike accident in September of 2016, she has learned a new level of skills in dealing with people going through major physical and psychic trauma. Along with her 20 years as a massage therapist and yoga teacher, she will be sharing her insights on recovering from major surgery/ trauma and pain and how to support our loved ones and students through this phase of their healing. Julia brings her many years of intensive study of the human body, anatomy, physiology and kinesiology to the program along with her passion to share this information in a very practical and accessible way.
The training includes a comprehensive study of how to use the ‘Universal Principles of Alignment’ of Anusara Yoga to invite easefulness and the optimal flow of prana that supports the body literally healing itself. We will take an in-depth look into the bio-mechanics of anatomy and kinesiology, inquire into the complexity of human physiology, and learn to identify what we are seeing in our students.
The teachers are asked to cultivate the first principle of Anusara Yoga, Open to Grace.This is the ability to see the bigger picture. What is going on and what is needed from you as a teacher/guide. The Shakti leads the way as we dance with the energy of the student needing guidance.
Your observation skills will be honed and your ability to empathize and see your student with a more subtle eye will be enhanced. These refine observational skills will assist the body in its own innate ability to heal itself.
Practicums on how to use ‘hands on’ adjustments with clear guidelines and tools, will enable you to support the vast range of injuries that you will meet both in the classroom and in your private practice.

“Taking this two year training was by far the best decision I have ever made in my life. There is an energy between us all that feels like the bond of family. We have seen one another through an incredible transformation. My trainers have been inspiring role models. They are tireless in their devotion to nurturing us and passing on the teachings and they never stopped believing in our greatness. I gave every bit of my heart to this training. I watch the teachers from the last training and long to blossom just as they have and I’m confident I will with patience and dedication.”
