Functional Yoga: Mobility, Strength & the Fascial Web
April 26 - 28 | Kindness Yoga, Denver, CO
Bringing along the mechanical view of the body where muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons act at their joints to create movement, we broaden our perspective to fascia, the connective tissue matrix in the body, and a key player for an integrated practice steering us toward optimal mobility and strength.
Each Session Includes:
- Basic Anatomy, Bio Mechanics and the Fascial Seams
- Yoga Practice Including Outside-the-Box Yoga Asana and Functional Movement Approaches for Strength and Mobility
- Breath Awareness and Pranayama Techniques
- Soft Tissue Reconditioning using Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls
- Deeper Insight into the Yoga Practice and Movement Health
Intended for the curious yoga student seeking a deeper understanding of their practice, and yoga teachers and teacher trainers wanting to integrate functional yoga techniques into their teaching.

The weekend Body of Bliss workshop in Albuquerque with Bea was AMAZING! I still glow from
the positive energy she continually broadcasts, the wisdom of the teachings she conveys, and
her playfulness. Thank you Bea for being you.
