This workshop fulfills the one-yoga YTT alignment based / Iyengar Style workshop requirement.

About This workshop:

Strong Roots is full of useful information for both yoga practitioners and teachers.  Most yoga classes are based off of the sun salutation.  In this class, you will be introduced to completely new and different ways to get in and out of classic yoga poses. These methods come from the tradition of Iyengar Yoga. Besides getting a whole new set of tools for your yoga practice, you will also learn to use the moon salutation with these techniques.  We will delve deep into alignment and anatomy in major joint areas and discuss modifications and safety.  You will learn tools that will protect your joints for a lifetime of yoga!

About Erin Sweeney:

Erin certified in New Jersey at Simply Yoga and trained with Bobbi Golden in Miami. Bobbi was trained by Mr. B. K. S. Iyengar himself.  These two training centers specialize in therapeutic adjustments using modification when needed! Erin taught anatomy at Delaware Tech for three years.  Understanding anatomy helps Erin to suggest alternative movements and adjustments that are suited to your anatomical needs.  Your body is designed to heal itself but habits and posture can impact healing.  If you correct your habits and strengthen postural muscles your body will heal and this will seem like magic!  Hereditary issues are often a factor. Yoga can support you in facing these while keeping your smile on!
