This program has been crafted after years of working with and listening to the questions, needs and concerns of yoga teachers. One of Stefani's main intentions when she created this program in 2011, was to support teachers in establishing a private practice that allowed them to move toward stability in their finances and their schedule.
By including a Thai Massage practitioner designation, that is NHPC accredited, as well as your 300 Hr RYT, this program allows our graduates to step into a private practice with the ability to issue insurance receipts to the their clients.

Working with senior teachers, this program looks to support you in strengthening your skills as a yoga teacher, while deepening your personal practice. We keep the cohort small and offer this program only once a year so that you get maximum time for mentoring with Stef. This program seeks to fill any gaps you may have remaining in your previous learning. Stefani personally mentors you through the process, exploring the key themes she has found to be impactful in her 19 years of teaching - offering her feedback, insights and guidance as you practice teach under her tutelage.

RECLAMATION + TRANSFORMATION + RESILIENCE
Embodiment Yoga™ is based on the 3 core principles of Reclamation, Transformation and Resilience. Practices always begin with creating a safe container, establishing ease and supporting students in empowered self discovery. We use this foundation to access our own innate transformation as we move into powerful practices from a place of our own want and consent. We use vinyasa krama to intelligently open the body and cultivate resilience by practicing how to regulate ourselves through breath, meditation, mantra and mudra.
Mandorla seeks to create teachers who use trauma respectful language and teaching approaches in mainstream classes. Yoga can be a powerful tool for tapping into the somatic layer of ourselves. We see an opportunity for teachers to support their students in better accessing their bodies. This is not a clinical training for teaching those with Trauma, but a training that hopes to bridge a gap that we see in the yoga teaching community. Many of us have trauma and going to a yoga class can be a step toward our healing journey with the proper support. Empowering teachers to use language that is respectful, student led and and empowering can make a world of difference.
All of our programs are rooted in the wisdom of Yoga's sister art, Ayurveda. Like Yoga, Ayurveda gives us tools to better understand ourselves and what we need for balance. Combining these arts together creates yoga practices that are rich with insight for bringing ourselves into a place of balance and restoration. We share this art from the very beginning in all our programs, sharing with you the knowledge of the Elements - Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether and how to pull these qualities into yoga asana and breath. In advanced progrmas we go deeper with understanding of dosha and lifestyle.
THAI YOGA MASSAGE
The presence a teacher brings allows us to feel held and whole. It allows us to go to places that didn't feel possible on our own. When we add the art of touch, done in a respectful way, it takes this experience to new depths. Thai Yoga Massage supports you in opening your body, releasing tension and allowing others to hold you. All healing and profound experiences on their own. This wisdom is weaved into all our programs, but is taken to fullness in our Practitioner training that is accredited with the NHPC.

This beautiful program takes you on a journey where Thai Massage and Restorative Yoga meet. Integrating the sister art of Ayurveda, you are taught how to support clients via the three Dosha of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Upon completion of this program, you will have the resources to offer three distinct Thai Yoga Massage sessions that are each up to 120 minutes in length. This program speaks to RMTs, Yoga Teachers and enthusiasts, giving you skills that can be integrated on the massage table, in yoga classes and everyday life. Having the ability to support others in better accessing and moving through their bodies is a gift in and of itself.
Trauma respectful practice asks that we provide hands on assists instead of adjustments and corrections. When we approach practice from this place, a place of holding space for others with gentleness, we begin to understand how profound touch is. This program immerses you in the art of Thai Yoga Massage, Ayurveda and Restorative Yoga practices for creating powerful one on one sessions. For Yoga Teachers, this content will inspire your group yoga class offerings.
