The Threes Physiyoga Method:
Designed for Yoga Teachers, this program is comprised of 80 hours of contact and 20 hours observation, practical, and written work.
A Threes Physiyoga certified teacher will be highly versed in:
have a strong sense of the musculoskeletal and physiological causes and implications of suboptimal and dysfunctional movement
the mechanics of breath
the neurological considerations of re-training the musculoskeletal system
deep integration of fascia and other connective tissue with the nervous system as it impacts the way we move.
This knowledge will provide the phyisyoga teacher with:
the skills to address injury
provide specific guidance at a higher, more professional level
precise and accurate hands on adjustments, modifications, and cues to their students
both 1:1 or group setting.
Advanced training students learn our THREE educational segments:
Knowledge Foundations: including anatomy, kinesiology, biomechanics, nervous system physiology, and musculoskeletal pathology
The TPM Assessment Tool: including an asana based assessment system, subjective history taking, and biopsychosocial observation and evaluation
Restoration: using the knowledge foundations and assessment tool we work to restore function. Including therapeutic movements and yoga asana, mindfulness, and breath work as medicine
Through “hands on” case study work and live observation, students gain the tools they need to use their yoga philosophic background in therapeutic one to one sessions with those suffering from injury, chronic pain, and repetitive stress impairments.
The program culminates in a final project as well as a verbal and written exam, where students receiving passing marks earn certification in the Threes Physiyoga Method.
