Chances are, as a teacher, there are spots in your body right now that don’t feel as good as they should. Sometimes that makes you feel like a fraud. You’ve also noticed the same thing happening to your students. A hamstring strain here, some wrist pain there. But until now, you thought that was just par for the course.  This 20-hour Course is designed to make your classes safer and to give you the knowledge you need to prevent injury from happening on your watch.

Wheel is one of yoga's quintessential backbends. It provides a gateway to other advanced backbends, but more importantly, even if you never get there, the prep work has amazing benefits on its own!

Whether you take this pose to its full expression, or continue to build a solid foundation, you will stand a little taller, feel a little freer, and move about the world with a more open heart.
