Focused Study: The Modular Therapy Course (MTC)

Our Modular Therapy Courses (MTCs) are designed to offer AYI teacher trainees a choice of workshops to support their interest in specific topics; however, they are equally interesting for yoga teachers and practitioners, regardless of yoga style or tradition. In each MTC relevant applied anatomy, alignment techniques and therapeutic exercises are introduced and practiced. 

Independently from your teacher training, you are required to participate in a given number of MTC modules. The MTCs are modular, meaning that they introduce all of the relevant information for that given topic during that specific training. There is no series or order that you need to follow. As a result, you can choose the dates and topics that interest you. What you will find is that each of the modules fit together likes pieces of a puzzle to give you a more well-rounded overview of the yoga practice. The contents of the MTC's provide you with a relevant and complete overview of applied anatomy, key information regarding alignment and yoga therapy.
