What is the Core?

 It is much more than the abdominal muscles. Discover your physical and energetic center along with your four-dimensional core in this online workshop. We will review and discuss core anatomy, applied pranayama, and spinal alignment through the combined lenses of a yoga therapist, physical therapist, athletic trainer, and strength and conditioning specialist. We will  learn through lecture and movement, with frequent posture and breathing breaks to experience the concepts. Move therapeutically while you earn continuing education hours!



Earn 4 hours of approved continuing education credit for yoga teachers with Yoga Alliance and yoga therapists with the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
