The Applied Yoga Breathwork Course is an in depth advanced training for all yoga teachers and movement professionals.
Breathing is fundamental to life. The diaphragm, the main muscle of respiration, often does not get the attention it deserves and thus loses its ability to attain optimal contraction and expansion. This can lead to anything from anxiety to back, neck and shoulder pain.
In this course students learn the foundation of all yogic pranayama. Proper diaphragm mechanics are taught as well as 360º rib cage expansion. At the end of the course you will have a more profound understanding of the body and mind as well as having a new set of tools to work with pain, dysfunction and hypertension.
The Applied Yoga Breathwork Course is one of a kind in the field of yoga, movement and assessment.
Take a major step in your career and join the increasing community of professionals blending ancient eastern practices with the intelligence of western science.

Without fail, every time I practice with him I walk away with new techniques to awaken my body and steady the mind. He naturally weaves together the integrity of all eight limbs of yoga and leads his classes with humor, focus and precision. Jory represents a powerful link in a chain of teachers going back centuries, and is himself, an embodiment of Yoga."
