• Movement Literacy

    Designed by yoga teachers, for yoga teachers, this digital course trains you to read the human body in an entirely new way. It’s a concept we call movement literacy.

  • Our Approach

    Let’s be honest: anatomy can be a dry and intimidating subject. That’s why this training revolves around experiential learning and as much laughter as possible.

  • Integrative Learning

    We went on retreat in the Californian redwoods and created material that looks at each concept from multiple angles and supports the way you learn best.

    Though I was reluctant to take an online course, I found this much more convenient since I could listen to the podcasts, videos and webinars on my own schedule. Lizzie’s questions are really helpful especially since she knows her mom so well and I love the depth of Judith’s knowledge and how she shares her experiences with Iyengar, and Mary rounds it off with her super in-depth knowledge in all areas.
