What is The Yoga of Healing about?
As a Certified Anusara teacher for many years, I saw first-hand the ways in which alignment-based yoga helps us get out of pain, and stay out.
But I also saw the ways in which separating out different body parts and using our more analytical side to heal could make things worse.
The therapeutic principles morphed into the more holistic, feminine, softer five Ma Yoga® alignment principles – or the Five Sacred Steps – that describe every co-creative act, from planting a garden to writing a poem.
We always work on multiple levels, never just biomechanics, always connected to how we’re feeling.
The “healing” and “therapeutics” denomination are not Yoga Alliance registered, but rather come through my Masters in Exercise Science as well as two decades of helping people out of pain.
The Five Ma Yoga Alignment Principles, or Five Sacred Steps – We will dive into each step, and practice applying them , and how to apply them to our every day poses to get and keep students out of pain.
Women’s bodies – We will address particular discomforts and injuries using women’s bodies as our model, as well as common challenges along the journey to including infertility, dyastisis recti, and back labor.
See energetic flow – Once you have these tools, you will be able to see where misalignments occur and help shift people in to a healing direction. By looking closely at specific issues related to pregnancy and postpartum, you will come to know intimately what the body needs physically and energetically to maintain ease and strength even in the most unstable and depleted times.
And finally, you will be part of an ever-growing, global community of yoga teachers, birth practitioners, and mamas who use birth as our guru to find our own open, strong, creative center – no matter what challenges arise!
I thought I’d have wrist pain forever
It was wonderful to learn that we are more powerful than we know and be given the tools to use this power and gentleness.
Helped me be more confident
Awesome journey through the body’s anatomy
Feeling the changes and benefits in our own body was key to be able to understanding all the principles of Ma Yoga!
More than I imagined
I'm excited to review all of the material and to start putting what I learned to use immediately. I really appreciate being able to download the handouts, it's nice to be able to revisit the handouts in the member area.
Essential for any new yoga teacher

I know how to find my power
Like I fully stepped into my power today and told some people I didn’t want to do this thing that I felt pressured to do.
Before this whole training with you I would have just sucked it up, I feel bad, but now I’m like “this doesn’t feel good to me” and I know how to find my power and stand in it.
