    The Swedish Institute 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program, in partnership with Studio Anya, brings together the fundamentals of bodywork and yoga to address chronic pain and illness from a clinical and therapeutic perspective. Our unique training builds on the skills and knowledge of massage therapists and bodyworkers, who are used to looking at posture, alignment, imbalance and ergonomics to help people achieve health and healing.

    You will learn how to use therapeutic poses and breathing exercises as tools to break the habitual movement patterns that cause pain and injury; to increase circulation and promote lymphatic drainage; to alleviate joint inflexibility, improve range of motion and build core strength; to bring balance to the nervous system, circulation and digestion; and ultimately to not only promote recovery, but to help prevent the injury in the first place.

    This unique training combines recognized and time-tested modalities into one integrated method that blends the best of East & West healing fundamentals, and addresses the root cause of chronic pain and pain-related conditions by assessing movement patterns and cultivating body-centered insights through the lens of anatomy, physiology and bodywork.

    The Swedish Institute Yoga Teacher Training is a Yoga Alliance Registered program covering all of the requirements listed by Yoga Alliance for a 200-hour certification, with a tailored focus that ties the tools you are going to learn into a therapeutic system of pain management.
