Therapeutic Wisdom with Doug Keller

March 9 - March 11

This three-day training intensive will introduce yoga teachers and inquiring students to the practical understanding of the ‘Prana Body’ described in yoga texts in terms of contemporary understanding of the role and function of the fascia — especially as relates to pain syndromes.

This will include treatment of patterns of movement linked to pain syndromes that can be ‘rewritten’ through asana practice, as well as the relatively new concepts of the Fascial Distortion Model, which explains the cause of much of our chronic pain in terms of ‘blocks’ in the fascial tissue. This understanding will be related to the Marma-centered discipline of Ayurveda as an approach to self-care in yoga practice and applied in practical and user-friendly ways.

The training weekend will be an exploration into the wisdom that the ever-evolving practice of hatha yoga has to offer to us in maintaining health and growing in heart in the face of the many challenges — including pain, injury and dysfunction — that life throws at us.

Certified yoga teachers will be eligible to receive CEUs for the sessions they fully attend.
