SELF-CARE FITNESS™ - Educator Trainings

Jill Miller with student. Make Creativity and Anatomical Fluency a Foundation of Your Teaching

Yoga Tune Up® and The Roll Model® Method, developed and created by internationally renowned movement educator, Jill Miller, are specialized conscious fitness formats integrating elements of Corrective Exercise, Body Therapy, Yoga and Self-Massage. The poses, routines, and myofascial self-care work found in these formats are deeply rooted in discovering the biomechanics and physiology of each individual, as an individual, helping to create lasting structural change. Yoga Tune Up® and The Roll Model® Method approach the body as a living archeological dig, probing layers of muscle, tendons, connective tissues and joints, and excavating unhealthy tension patterns until your students (and you) are moved back into complete physiological balance.


The accessible nature and style of these formats fill classes and workshops with a broad spectrum of both men and women ranging from athletes, professionals, movement professionals, and clinicians, to boomers becoming active for the first time. Join them and find a Roll Model Method or Yoga Tune Up® teacher training program near you.

TUNE UP FITNESS TRAININGS ARE BEST SUITED FOR:

  • Fitness professionals seeking continuing education and a proven format to expand their teaching repertoire.
  • Instructors/Teachers seeking to grow class attendance and/or private practice
  • Fitness instructors/professionals seeking to deepen their understanding of and further integrate anatomy and physiology into their teaching format.
  • Fitness instructors/professionals looking to increase their creative teaching ability while simultaneously delivering advanced biomechanical instruction.

Yoga Tune Up® Certification Training

The Yoga Tune Up® Certification Training (70 hour Program) strikes a balance between the worlds of yoga and fitness, attracting trainees of all ages, body types, and movement modalities. It breaks down the nuts and bolts of human movement by using a yogic lens of awareness, conscious relaxation and proper breathing techniques. The YTU Certification Training environment fosters trainees into a newly intimate understanding of their own architecture, diving deeply into integrated anatomy and body mechanics. You will go beyond formulaic instruction and truly learn how to think and teach creatively within your specific teaching environment, with both group classes and private clients. Trainees are presented with "template" Yoga Tune Up® classes that can be used to help jumpstart workshops and classes. Successful completion of the YTU Certification training is mandatory prior to teaching any Yoga Tune Up® classes or workshops. Please note that while there is Therapy Ball education included in this training it is predominantly a movement biomechanics based training. 

Completion of the YTU Certification Training is required to be a licensed YTU teacher.

This 70 hour training:

  • Become proficient and comfortable with the fundamentals of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics and how to apply them in a private or group class setting
  • Learn a step-by-step process to create memorable, accessible classes and learn to “think out of the boxana”
  • Refresh your love of teaching and learn new classroom leadership skills
  • Be prepared to teach your own Yoga Tune Up® classes, privates, and more

Integrated Embodied Anatomy Training

Learn anatomy from the inside-out. This comprehensive anatomy module (15 - 20 hrs.) expertly guides you into your living tissues in a concrete and inspiring way. It provides you with a directly personal experience of the interplay of the many complex systems of the body and helps you to make them relevant and tangible for your students. Learn how the multiple layers of the body relate and function as a whole while simultaneously exploring specific anatomical structures, physiological processes and typical movement patterns and pathologies.

The unique YTU approach not only helps you to embody anatomy, but our educational methodology drastically improves any students' retention of the clinical language of anatomy in a completely accessible and fun way.Dynamic movement, combined with video, 3-D models, palpation, and self-massage tools and techniques,will invite you to traverse the muscles, joints, bones and fascia and their interrelatedness to breath, circulation, immunity, injury and newfound functional movement patterns. The curriculum is suitable for yogis of all levels, but also ideal for any movement professional who desires to sharpen their ability to perceive within themselves as well as correctly locate in others, the vital structural landmarks and meaningful continuities of the body within any yoga or fitness practice.Make anatomy relevant to you, and your students will follow!

Core Integration Immersion

For yoga teachers, advanced yoga practitioners, Pilates and fitness teachers, massage therapists, dancers, and martial artists. This 4-day immersion is designed to enhance your connection to the abdominal core and is filled with practical tools for effectively integrating core work into your practice and teaching. Through embodied anatomy exercises, you will systematically travel within your core to explore the key structures that mobilize and stabilize the spine. Using Jill's original Yoga Tune Up® techniques, you will strengthen and stretch every last muscle fiber. You will be introduced to several core-related pranayama techniques to directly experience your diaphragm and experience daily self-massage with Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls. Learn how to apply core work to your daily yoga practice, as well as ways of integrating and sequencing the exercises in a class setting. Unique empowerment exercises will address the emotional blocks that often obscure core work, so that you may uncover and resolve your third chakra issues, and ultimately inspire others.

A Physioball is required for this course and will not be provided by the studio.  Trainees are responsible for bringing this each day.
