BackMitra(TM) Teacher Training

Learn the art of teaching with the BackMitra...

whether you teach yoga, pilates or movement, are a body worker or health practitioner, the backmitra has something to offer you and your clients.  a brilliant device designed to release stress and strain in the spine, the backmitra is simple to use and highly effective.

This 14 hour Foundations Training is based on yoga therapy principles. Influenced by the teachings of Restorative Alignment, Vijnana Yoga, Yoga Therapy and MELT, this training will be an assimilation of important practices to learn to confidently teach with the BackMitra.

Having completed the 800 hour Vijnana training with Gioia Irwin, practices to promote tensegrity and cultivate a quiet back body will be explored.

As a certified Hand & Foot MELT instructor, the new science of understanding the core will be reviewed. Health and hydration of the connective tissue matrix will be discussed.

Having completed my 800 hour Yoga Therapy Training with Leila Stuart, therapeutic sequences and breathing inquiries will be woven in the course content. Based on the guidelines of: establish presence, repattern neural connection, optimize alignment, stabilize, mobilize and integrate, this intensive weekend training will be educational, inspiring and transformational.
