A study of traditional & modern yogic principles exploring a range of yoga postures and class plan development. Emphasis on beneficial effects of yoga for new, aging or injured students applying fascial mobility & bio-mechanical patterning.
FASCIAL STRETCH | YOGA TEACHER TRAINING TRACK
Our New Mexico Yoga Teacher Training program was designed by director and E-RYT lead instructor, Marianne Mohr to educate teacher trainees on yoga physiology, fascia and bio-mechanical patterning. Fascia is the connective tissue or "scaffolding network" that wraps internal structures, muscles & organs in the human body. It can become restricted due to injury, overuse, trauma, aging decline or inactivity. Fascial dysfunction results in pain, muscle tension, diminished blood flow and reduced ability to heal. Myofascial release through Fascia Stretch Yoga, improves these dysfunctions, deepens yoga practice and stimulates healing. Other physiological factors of a range of connective tissue which affect yoga function and benefits are covered in the comprehensive curriculum.
