Functional Yoga System: Functionally Building Upon the Tradition of Yoga for Better Impact and Carryover

The most comprehensive functional yoga training course, Functional Yoga System, is designed for the human body of today while celebrating the many ways traditional yoga gets it right.

Yoga is an ancient practice bringing together body, mind, and spirit. However, our understanding of the human body has changed significantly since the physical practice of yoga was first developed. Moreover, our jobs, sports and hobbies often require repetitive motions which may lead to overuse injuries—factors that traditional yoga may not address. This one of a kind specialization will help you enhance your yoga practice by training you in the latest in functional movement.
