This is a training for people interested in helping others authentically inhabit their bodies. Teachers, coaches, health-care professionals, and other professionally-minded individuals who understand that movement is a gift, and it’s everyone’s birthright.

Are you interested in practicing and teaching therapeutically-oriented movement that prioritizes authenticity over conformity?

This training is for dedicated ‘helpers’ seeking yoga that’s rooted in an understanding of human development and aimed at de-patterning inefficient programing so students can be free to celebrate their body and soul. We teach teachers how to help students do the same.

Healthy movement is diverse movement. Primal Vinyasa is an intelligent, functional mobility training that will teach you the skills for more advanced poses while transcending the boundaries of traditional yoga practice. Tap into your strong center through a thoughtful progression of strength training and mind-body-awareness practices; remember your innate capacity for relaxed, balanced, and powerful movement. ​
