The Yoga of Healing: Yoga Therapy Training
The Yoga of Healing is a Transformative Yoga Therapy Training for Women's Bodies
If you've ever asked - or had a student ask WHY:
or had a mama ask HOW:
And the answer to ALL of the above is more simple than you might think: alignment.
When you move toward optimal alignment you support the flow of prana, or the body’s intelligence and power. And when this happens, you feel better right away and over time you heal and thrive.
Understanding what we want students to do INSIDE the pose is what this training is all about.
Because you can be healing while you’re driving, and hurting yourself on the mat.
It’s not the pose that’s the point – it’s the subtle but powerful alignment actions we’re taking within it.
This is especially important when we teach women in their childbearing years, because the body changes so much during this time. The usual aches and pains become even more common, misalignments are magnified, and as baby and belly grows, it’s important to understand how to find our stable, steady center..
It’s important for all yoga teachers to understand how to prevent and heal pregnancy and postpartum-related conditions, including:
In The Yoga of Healing Yoga Teacher Training, you’ll learn how to use simple alignment actions to help students, clients, loved ones and yourself relieve aches and pains, heal injury and stay feeling great, on and off the mat.
In this powerful, transformative three-week, online training, you will learn alignment principles to practice, teach, and live by. These actions can be done anytime to help relieve aches and pains, stabilize joints, find freedom physically and emotionally, and access support throughout the phases of your life.
Bring your aches and pains. They are often our greatest gurus, so we can learn from them – and then help others with our wisdom.

What Yoga Of Healing Participants Are Saying...
This was my first experience with alignment-based yoga. The training took my Kundalini yoga practice to a new level.
The emphasis on principles of alignment and awareness of kinaesthetics has changed the way I teach and the direction I give my students.
I feel so much more confident about teaching, which is amazing because I didn’t feel that way after my 200 hour.
My experience with The Yoga of Healing was fantastic. I thought I would have wrist pain forever, but just by learning to support my weight in my shoulders, I have started to alleviate this issue.
It was wonderful to learn that we are more powerful than we know and be given the tools to use this power to heal.
With no background in teaching yoga, the Therapeutics training really helped me be more confident in my ability to teach.
The training was very interactive and hands on which also made me more confident in being able to teach others. Thank you Ma Yoga!
I had a wonderful experience – it was definitely more than I imagined it to be. The weekend really helped me to look at yoga in a different way. I walked away with new tools and principles that I can use on myself and others.
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.
Jessica, the alignment principles I learned in your therapeutics workshop last weekend was completely evolutionary for my practice in mind, body, and spirit.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for this priceless gift. I hope some day to embody a fraction of the goddess energy that radiates from you.
I left teaching each class feeling ridiculously happy; so proud to be doing my best for these ladies at such a special time and so privileged that I was in a position to be able to be on this journey.
How lucky to be doing something so magical it uplifts your heart and soul every day.
I LOVED the training and feel so much more confident helping people out of pain! It’s definitely changed how I approach cueing my classes now, and though I’m sure they will evolve so much over time, I don’t think I’ll ever stop using the 5 principles!
Thank you so much for bringing life and richness to child’s pose with the instructions you shared.
I am finding as I share yoga, that the use of the Five Sacred Steps are becoming easier, more natural. This evolution is so wonderful, Jess!
I loved the Yoga of Healing training. It was extremely informative and the last session was really helpful to watch the alignment adjustments.
I feel more confident being able to explain things now.
After the Yoga of Healing, I feel more confident in understanding the bodies and their alignments.
I have been teaching Anusara for 7 years now, but I was never this aware how universal the principles actually are.
