Yoga Medicine® Essentials Workshop Details

After decades of working with clients and training thousands of teachers, Yoga Medicine’s Founder, Tiffany Cruikshank, has distilled the core components of a therapeutic practice into a 4-part workshop. The Yoga Medicine® Essentials Workshop will dive into the nuances of topics that are hard to fit into group classes, but are crucial for all yoga practitioners and teachers to understand in order to optimize the way we move. Each workshop will outline the structure and function of a key anatomical area and the network of fascia that supports and coordinates functional movement in this region. You will leave with an arsenal of information to instantly incorporate into your dynamic practice and teaching.

We are excited to have senior Yoga Medicine teacher, Jenni Tarma in the studio to lead this incredible workshop!
