Hey -- I'm Jason.
I’ve been teaching yoga for more than 20 years teaching yoga and training yoga teachers.
For the past 10 years, I’ve honed my approach to yoga anatomy by looking to peers outside of the yoga community, in the fields of physical therapy, orthopedics, traumatology, and sports medicine.
In this training, I shed light on the fine line you need to walk as a yoga teacher to offer your students the help that they need without diagnosing.
To do this, you need to be intimately familiar with common yoga injuries, why they happen, and how you can offer sequences and modifications that will lessen the probability of creating or worsening injuries.
This work is ongoing for all of us because no two bodies are the same. But that’s also what makes it so interesting and fun to share!
The upside to online education is that it's flexible -- you can watch the lessons on your own time and in the comfort of your own home. You also have access to all of the course content for six months.
The short answer to your question? Yes, you can do this!
The course content will be available on November 2nd, 2020.
The Zoom calls occur on November 6th, 7th, and 8th. You can either choose between a 10am Pacific call or a 4pm Pacific call.
All course content and the Zoom replays will be accessible until May 30th, 2021.
The bulk of the course is delivered through pre-recorded videos. We deliver our courses this way for two reasons: First, it gives you the flexibility to move through the content on your own timeline. Second, it allows you to join from a different time zone. And third, it ensures high quality video and no interruptions -- the last thing we want is for you to experience a disruption in the internet connection during a class or lecture!
However, Jason does conduct 3 live calls via Zoom on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. You can choose from a 10:00am-12:00pm Pacific call time or 4:00-6:00pm Pacific. This allows you to ask questions.
