Sara Tacy TangrediDid you know 100 million adults in the US experience chronic pain? Be the go-to teacher with the therapeutic tools to help people unleash their potential of living a healthy, vibrant and inspired life. Increase your client list while changing lives.

This program is designed to help you acquire a deeper more fluid relationship with therapeutic work by studying both the objective, scientific aspects of the body, as well as exploring the subjective, experiential elements of the soul.  I consider this a multi-dimensional approach to transformational therapeutic work.

In the program you will learn specifics of:

  • Emotional anatomy
  • Alignment and adjustments
  • Neuromuscular holding patterns and how to reset them
  • Reflective listening

(See Tools of Gold video for details on the above!)

In Part two we will start by sharing “aha moments,” what has been working, and what questions you now have after applying your work over the last month.  We will dive deeper into each of the four main sections of therapeutic work by looking at more complex cases (neurologically, emotionally, structurally, and spiritually).  This section will include deeper hands-on adjustments, attention-based healing modalities, and a dynamic conversation on the business of increasing your private-yoga clientele.

It is recommended that you have some anatomy knowledge for part two as some of the adjustments and techniques assume a general understanding of muscle fiber direction.  

Multidimensional Yoga Therapeutics 50-hours is an advanced training for yoga teachers.  It pairs perfectly with Multidimensional Yoga Anatomy to form a complete 100-hrs of training in Multidimensional Anatomy and Therapeutics.  It is recommended but not required to take this program in conjunction with 50-hr Multidimensional Anatomy to complete a full 100-hrs of training. When both courses are taken in conjunction the 5th weekend will be free.

The fifth and final weekend will be for participants working toward their 100 hour certificate.  This weekend will have review, practice teach, professional practice, integration, and graduation!
