3 Bridges School of Yoga

“You are very special. Your legacy will be carried in the hearts of those whose lives you build by giving them the strength to face their own tomorrow unto victory.”
~Yogi Bhajan~

As yoga teachers we believe it is essential to remain open, humble, and committed
to the path of deeper study. One of our highest values is just that~ the commitment
to eternal studentship and continuing education.

Our passion and discipline for our own practices bring integrity and depth to our
teachings. It is through our ability to share our full-spectrum experience of
humanity with confidence, accessibility, and authenticity in the yoga room that we
inspire our students and hold space for alchemic integration of the body, mind, and
heart. If we or another yoga teacher has at one point inspired you to consider the
teaching path, join us! We are here to support your evolution with a variety of
incredible trainings to choose from.

Join Nancy Wheaton Modern and Janet Richards of Bodies in Motion in this 5 hour hands on workshop designed for the yoga teacher currently working with students of all ages, highlighting the student 50 years or older.
Yoga teachers will gain an understanding of integrative approaches that are effective for this age group.

movement.
2. The Emotional: Life traumas including those caused by divorce, issues
with children, caring for elderly parents, and sudden and/or unexpected
loss that impact perspectives and bring on stress, anxiety, or depression.
3. The Spiritual: The understanding that we are ALL stronger than we think
we are and are able to gather wisdom from suffering that morphs into true
compassion and forgiveness.
Cost: $75.00, sign up here.
Snacks and tea are provided. Bring a notebook and a lunch. This workshop may also be taken on Zoom. We love you, but no refunds.
