5. What will your students learn from you?
In my therapeutic Yoga Tune Up® classes, hatha, vinyasa, restorative and meditation classes, students learn how philosophy, science, breath and embodiment weave together, facilitating new awareness. Through therapeutic self-massage, yoga therapy and posture mechanics, they will become aware of the way they move, stand, and connect with their bodies. Students learn to self-identify and treat places in their body that are “stuck,” so they can heal from imbalance, injury and/or pain.
