Throughout the ages, Yogis were innovators.  Yoga is a rich and complex lineage of teachings, practices and dialogues which are reflected in modern Vinyasa Yoga.  While we may gravitate toward specific practices that speak to our bodies and minds, learning about the many innovations, technologies and systems of yoga can help us develop appreciation, respect and understanding for all the diverse possibilities that exist to diversify our practice, teaching and lives.

To be DIVERSIFIED is to value tolerance, spaciousness, and acceptance of all preferences.  To be DIVERSIFIED, we must explore and study Yoga, other modalities and life in a non-dogmatic way.  To be DIVERSIFIED, we must learn to safely and respectfully share the knowledge we acquire with our students.

In this module you will:

  • Engage in a rich style study with renowned area Yoga teachers

  • Explore modalities and philosophies outside of Yoga including Martial Arts, Ayurveda, Daoism and Reiki

  • Receive a Reiki Level 1 Attunement so that you can utilize healing energy on yourself, in classes and privates*

  • Delve deep into Restorative Yoga and receive a 2-day certification

  • Enrich your teaching with new tools and techniques inspired by Aromatherapy, Myofascial Release, Thai Massage and self massage

  • Spend an entire day exploring a multitude of ways to use props (straps, blocks, blankets, bolsters, walls, etc) in classes and private sessions to support students and deepen their experience 

  • Practice using new tools and techniques in your teaching and receive one-on-one mentoring and feedback

DIVERSIFIED can be taken independently or as a part of your YA 300HR certification.  With our unique curriculum and pay per module pricing, modules can be taken in any order.
