As many of you know, I have been studying with Integrative Yoga Therapy for the past 3 years. In January 2018, I completed all the necessary steps in my training and internship to certify with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). It has been an incredible process that has taught me more than I could have anticipated. It has also been a process that has connected me with teachers and practitioners all over Turtle Island, taking me from Hawai'i to the East Coast on 4 separate occasions. The networks we have created in cities accross the continent means I intend to continue touring, hopefully in late 2018. I would like to thank my teachers Joesepth and Lillian LePage, and mentor Maria Mendola for the wealth of knowledge, heart, and especially humor that they poured into our time together. You can visit Joseph and Lillian in Enchanted Mountain, Brazil, or study Functional Yoga Therapy with Maria Mendola in Tucson, AZ.
