You love yoga, and as a yoga teacher you love helping people to feel better. From your experience teaching yoga and from your own practice you know a good teacher is always learning. Learning new information and ways to support healthy movement and make yoga more sustainable gets you really excited. (I know, me too!) But here is the question that I get all the time: How do you integrate the all the heartfelt, transformative aspects of yoga with current research and education?
Yoga as a living tradition continues to evolve. And your teaching model should too. You can stay ahead of the curve while staying true to your roots.
"I am truly blown away by this course! Brea's authenticity and presence and sense of humor make it feel like it isn't pre-recorded. I feel like I'm there learning with her. Plus, the amount of content! I was so surprised at HOW MUCH is in the course. And, I can go back and re-watch any time. I also never expected the level of "mentorship" Brea has provided me with. She is always there to answer questions and point me in the right direction. And she is so encouraging! You can ask her a question in her Facebook group and she gets right back to you. Or you can email her and get an immediate response. It's obvious that she is invested in my experience and education and wants to see me succeed as a teacher" - Barbara, Montana
Imagine blending movement science, yoga and alignment into a succinct, sustainable and empowered teaching practice and putting all of that theory into a results based reality for you and your students.
You are a yoga teacher who...
Knows there can be a better way of helping your students use yoga to heal and feel better in their bodies, but aren’t sure where to start to learn more and integrate it into your teaching.
Is struggling with putting everything you have learned into a clear teaching model.
Is feeling conflicted with what you were taught about yoga vs the biomechanics of the body.
Wants to have a more applicable understanding of postural habits and alignment to be able to confidently direct your students and clients.
Feels lost in the implementation of all the various theories that sound great but are difficult to put into real life classes.
Is afraid to teach a non-traditional form of yoga and needs the confidence to blaze your own teaching path.
"This course is helping me settle into myself as a teacher of movement in the yoga world. I'm preparing to lead my first teacher training and what I've learned here has helped me ground and gain confidence to pursue this unconventional approach in a traditional community. Sharing your information & insights has been integral in me discovering my own voice and platform to share. The last few weeks have been a vibrant place of growth as I share new changes and new ideas. I'm learning to trust the process and have started prefacing my classes with yoga being a living tradition and much of what they'll see in class are a sustainable upgrade on the more traditional postures. I give a few why cues during class when we do a "sustainable cobra" or an "evolved chair pose." Thank you for sharing your approach and your knowledge with us!" -Kimberly, Alaska
After 1000’s of hours teaching and learning biomechanics, alignment and movement science, I can tell you...it IS confusing and you are NOT alone.
If you’re like me, you love to dive into the understanding and research of movement and want to combine that with the ancient wisdom that lives in yoga, but you struggle with the HOW.
"I love the emphasis on each participant in the Modern Yogi, discovering their own vision. It is not the "GURU" lens of relying on one person to guide us. Instead I love that you are empowering a whole group of people to promote and generate a vision that is integrated with who they are as an individual. And yet, still in community." - Emma, Wisconsin

"My view on movement within a yoga practice and beyond, has been forever altered - in the best way possible! Brea sharing her knowledge of biomechanics and how to incorporate it into not only a yoga practice, but into everyday life has been extremely beneficial - to both myself and those whom I've had the pleasure to share this updated movement with. Improving our proprioception and interoception to move and feel more strong and resilient then ever before! Thank you Brea!" -Andrea Tarves, Alberta, Canada
This is your post-graduate continuing education, going straight to the heart of what a yoga teacher needs to know to stand out in a crowded market. This course will set you apart as a teacher and give you the distinctive techniques of leading movement specialists while giving you immediate takeaways to apply to your private practice, classes and workshops for effective and immediate results.
Here is what awaits you inside the only modern yoga toolbox you will ever need:
The course is rooted in the 4 Pillars of a Sustainable Yoga Practice. You will learn what they are and how to apply them to any style of yoga or movement practice. Each of the 4 pillars will make up the four main modules in the course. Within each module, you will learn through lectures and practice videos; movement theory, sprinkled with embodied anatomy and clear, concise teaching and tools to apply theory to practice.
"I love how you dive into the subtleties of deeper movement. Your 30-minute lessons leave me feeling like I've spent an hour and a half at my local studio." -Jamie, Rhode Island
Just some of the movement theory we will cover:
Proprioception & Interoception: The inner and outer experiencing of your body and what that means in a yoga practice.
Active vs Passive Stretching: What is the difference between them and how to utilize both approaches to build strength, range of motion and support for your students.
Yoga Alignment & Biomechanical Alignment: What is the difference and how to approach alignment from a broader, whole body movement approach.
The Building Blocks: An embodied approach to your joints and muscles. Understanding anatomy from within (and without having to memorize anatomical language that your students won't care about). Learning to teach from an embodied understanding of movement by breaking down the key elements and applying them for sustainability and injury prevention.
Moving Beyond Flexibility: Understanding mobility, stability and flexibility. Learn a wide variety of ways to build stability for your overly mobile students, and discover that 'sweet spot' where you can be both mobile and strong.
Setting Boundaries: Learning how to identify physical boundaries in yoga asana to prevent injury and enhance mobility instead of promoting flexibility. Learn assessment tools to identify physical boundaries and compensation patterns in yourself and your students. Not only exploring the benefits of respecting physical boundaries in movement, but learning how to incorporate boundaries as a teacher, and in relationships.
Nervous System Nourishment: Discover your amazing nervous system. How to support the nervous system in movement and rest. Gain a clearer understanding of just how much your nervous system matters for your movement and your sense of well-being.
“I think your lessons of self-adjustment and awareness have made me less fearful of challenging poses, and less ego-driven in my personal practice. If I hurt less, I trust more. I think the shift towards the biomechanical, and kinesiological approach is a natural expansion of teaching yoga, and I think you’re right on the button with that one. There’s so much to learn! I start off every morning with some of the movements you showed us. I come home from work and rest my psoas with a bolster. I roll out my feet on a wooden dowel. If I can be consistent with even a few minutes everyday, I find it’s much better than if I waited to do an hour every 2-3 days. Thank-you so much! ” — Tina, Canmore, AB

Which means that you are free to apply, adapt and create a yoga practice that is meaningful to you and your students.
“Your application of biomechanics in the development of a personalized, gentle yoga program has given me a valuable understanding of my body’s needs. Showing me how to do the program in my own home has allowed me to incorporate it into my daily activities. Love it!” -MHC
Throughout the course, I've found I've developed a greater awareness of muscles and joints and how to keep them strong and mobile. Being able to work through the program at my own pace was important to me and I've found the lessons are well planned and layer nicely from one to the next. The video demonstrations are easy to understand and well done. I like that I can do a lesson and immediately add what I have learned into my next class. Brea is very enthusiastic and very natural on the videos. I love to connect with that energy, I feel like we are in the same room but I didn't have to leave the comfort of my own home. Brea's method is simple and effective and the information is improving my personal practice and my teaching skills. Thanks!
