SomaYoga Therapy & Somatics Clinical Techniques

Learn how to work clinically with SomaYoga methodology!Teri Jodi private session

This course will support you to become a very effective private session teacher. At Yoga North ISYI we have found it extremely valuable to work with yoga students & pain clients one on one. In private sessions the student gets their own unique needs met and a tailored home practice.

This workshop will cover how to use SomaYoga for the trunk & core, the pelvis to lower extremities and the shoulder to neck region. We will work with anatomy, functional movement and use the practice of “Pandiculation” from somatics to help re-educate the muscles. This re-education followed by a tailored home practice will help the student move with less pain, more ease and grace. Please join us for this powerful self healing practice!

SomaYoga Therapy & Somatics Intensive is a pre-requisite for this intensive.
