Why Physiyoga?

The field of using yoga therapeutically is rapidly expanding as people seek support  through injuries and pain using less conventional methods. Yoga teachers are often turned to first when a student has pain. 

However, we have recognized the gap that remains after 200-hour yoga teacher training programs in the knowledge and understanding of how injuries and pain affect the whole person.  This training advances yoga teachers with an informed and practical way to integrate physical therapy principles with yoga that bridge this gap. 

As leaders in the integration of physical therapy with yoga, we provide yoga teachers with advanced education, quality resources and a supportive network. TPM’s online learning journey is designed to support your growth and individuality as a yoga teacher and our collective strength as an informed, leading-edge community.

This online training is designed for 200-hour yoga instructors who want to infuse their practice and teaching with an in-depth understanding of the body through a movement science lens. 

What is the Method?

The Threes Physiyoga Method is a science-based approach providing methodical ways to incorporate the understanding and application of physiyoga into one’s own teaching style. 

Rooted in the foundational knowledge of applied anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, kinesiology, and neuroscience, the framework is designed to be adaptable, leaving room for a teacher’s creativity and singularity.  TPM supports the sustainable and practical application of yoga to meet teachers and students where they are. 

How is the online TPM Advanced Yoga Teacher Training structured?

There are three pathways to TPM certification –Train, Practice, or Master–providing the option for program completion in the learning style and environment most suitable for you. Choose one of the TPM pathways and begin your journey. All pathways lead to certification.

Independent Study with Access to TPM Mentor

Participants receive individualized guidance and structure from a members of our TPM mentoring program to fulfill the certification requirements and integrate their toolkit skills into practice.
