We aspire to support a yogi's deeper understanding of the practice to help new practitioners learn that yoga is much more than a physical practice on the mat. Nothing beats the full learning experience of "in person" training, where dialogue, feedback and ambiance enhance the experience, but sometimes a multi-media approach to learning provides new insight and a great opportunity to reinforce what you are learning in an experiential way. The Heartwood Staff creates yoga online courses for our students to provide additional support and study options which we hope will support deeper connections to the power and beauty of authentic yoga education.
Yoga is actually 8 disciplines that, together, create a remarkable system of healing, health and personal peace. This yoga online course , taught by Ginny Shaddock, ERYT-500 & C-IAYT, provides and overview of the 8 limbs of yoga and why a student would benefit from studying those elements of yoga beyond the mat practice. A great foundational course for your yoga education.
Heartwood has a full series of anatomy courses for yoga teachers in training, but this introductory course provides students with a basic understanding structural issues as pertaining to the yoga practice for anyone interested in developing a stronger awareness of alignment in their practice. Taught by Denver Clark, ERYT-500, LMT.
We post free online classes on YouTube so students can reinforce their yoga education and practice at home or when they are traveling with some guidance. Our hope is that this resource will provide an example of the quality of classes from Heartwood teachers while supporting our student's ongoing yoga journey.
