“Chronic, low-level inflammation at the cellular level develops without pain and can lead to obesity, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. Inflammation is our body’s normal and healthy response to injury or attack on the immune system. Inflammation on the surface of the body is commonly described as heat, redness, swelling, and pain.”–Institute for Integrative Nutrition

Join Lauri Bruce, E-RYT 500 for a transformational experience in the teaching lineages of Nosara Yoga Institute and the American Viniyoga Institute.

Guiding our students on the path to personal transformation is a richly rewarding practice. When we use the model of the Koshas, the layers of the body relating to the physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual, we can hone our skills of modification, observation and adaptation. This 100 hour module will allow you to experience a deepening sense of personal awareness through the use of chanting, pranayama and appropriate adaptation of asana. These lessons will then be applied to the group class experience as well as a private student.

Emphasis will be placed on observing without judgment, the use of language in combination with gentle touch for assistance and developing co and reflective listening skills. We will work with fellow trainees and community clients to expand our understanding of special needs and conditions. These conditions can limit our ability to practice with out pain and block the path to transformation.

Technically, we will focus on the mechanics of movement in postures and how they relate to and support postural alignment. A general study of anatomy will be woven into each practice allowing you, the teacher, to deepen your understanding of your students unique gifts and challenges.
