Align body, mind, and heart with the infinite source of wellness in a yoga therapy training intensive that explores the miracle of healing. Todd Norian teaches that every cell in the body is programmed for healing and joy. Unfortunately, unconscious movement patterns and self-limiting beliefs may keep you from fully accessing this power. Through life-affirming tantric philosophy and precise alignment techniques of Ashaya Yoga®, you learn how to transform pain and limitation into freedom and joy.
 During this training, you gain greater knowledge of specific alignment techniques that address, heal, and prevent common aches and pains, including:

  • Ankle and knee pain
  • Hamstring tears
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Lower back and SI joint dysfunction
  • Shoulder and neck strain
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Tennis elbow
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Each day of this intensive includes guided asana instruction and training in Ashaya Yoga®, tantric philosophy, therapeutic exercises, demonstrations, skillful observation, hands-on techniques, and basic anatomy.

Recommended reading: Key Muscles of Yoga by Ray Long

Note: Tuition includes a manual.

Note: The yoga therapy components of Todd’s teaching are based on his extensive training, study, and personal experience of many healing modalities, including physical therapy, therapeutic massage, bodywork, energy work, alignment-based yoga, and healing his own injuries and those of his students through the Ashaya Method. These techniques are not derived from his status as an ERYT-500 with Yoga Alliance Registry.
