YTU Certification Training
Yoga Tune Up® is a potently therapeutic style of conscious corrective exercise that strikes a balance between the worlds of yoga, fitness, pain management, and myofascial self-care.
The study of Yoga Tune Up® delves you deeply into integrated anatomy and body mechanics while helping you discover a fresh approach to teaching and leading no matter what movement modality you lead. You will go beyond formulaic instruction and truly learn to think, teach and coach creatively within your classroom and with individual clients.
YTU attracts students of all ages and body types as it breaks down the nuts and bolts of human movement and provides context-based teaching strategies for the classroom, clinic, gym or studio. It interweaves precise anatomy with a yogic lens of awareness, conscious relaxation, and body therapy to help every student live better in their body.
