Yoga Tune Up® breaks down the nuts and bolts of human movement using a yogic lens of awareness, conscious relaxation, self-massage and proper breathing techniques to bring students to an intimate understanding of their own native architecture.
  • YTU improves overall strength, flexibility and coordination no matter what style of yoga or physical discipline you teach or practice.
  • This method is a comprehensive approach to body biomechanics and self-care, it integrates multiple modalities of human movement into a seamless format and it fosters an embodied understanding of how to create suppleness and stability in students at any stage of health or fitness.
  • This body mindful style leads to an efficient and balanced structure from the inside out. This results in creating lasting change in the body’s tissues and bringing any body back into sound alignment. Yoga Tune Up® poses, processes, and techniques are a valuable addition to your teaching and personal practice repertoire.
  • As a Yoga Tune Up® teacher, you will learn to go beyond formulaic instruction and truly learn how to think and teach creatively within your classroom. Yoga Tune Up® helps its practitioners create and define a “path of purpose” so that you skillfully inspire yourself and your students to unlock their greatest potential.
  • The Level 1 training will prepare you to teach your own Yoga Tune Up® classes.
  • In Part 1 of the training, you will learn a variety of Master Poses broken down Yoga Tune Up® style. This establishes the fundamentals of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics necessary to intelligently craft Yoga Tune Up® classes. In Part 2 of the training you will learn “Thinking out of the Boxana,” a step-by-step guide to creating memorable, accessible, and effective Yoga Tune Up® classes.
  • To be certified as a teacher, you must pass a take home test and in-class evaluation at the end of the week. You will also be given several class templates to jump-start your own Yoga Tune Up® classes.
