Offering yoga instructors and students seeking a deeper understanding of yoga, and ultimately themselves, an intimate and nurturing environment in which to learn, grow and become empowered as teachers and individuals. Born from over 20 years of research, study, practice and thousands of hours of teaching, Empowered Yoga is a comprehensive program combining ancient traditions and philosophies with modern advancements in biomechanics, exercise science, wellness, and psychology.
Empowered Yoga: An evolving and integrated tradition
Our vision is to extract meaning and context from ancient practices and apply this to modern ideas, social issues, health, and wellness. After centuries of psychology and physiology, It is very clear that no two people share the same experiences or bodies. Empowered opens up the dialogue between many eclectic therapeutic and movement modalities, dissolving limiting boundaries. We do not SHOULD on our teachers and students. We respect tradition while supporting all body shapes and abilities. The more we understand about the human body and brain the more we have realized that ‘correct’ geometric shapes within postures often sacrifice individuality and creates injury.
This course is perfect for those who want a deeper understanding of yoga and how to implement these practices into daily living as well as those who are interested in eventually sharing the practice of yoga with others. While this course prepares students to facilitate (teach) yoga classes, it is also for those who are interested in developing their own personal self-care practices. For those interested in leading workshops, specialty programs, and private yoga we encourage the 500Hr or 800Hr Program.
