The study of Yoga Tune Up® delves you deeply into integrated anatomy and body mechanics while helping you discover a fresh approach to teaching and leading no matter what movement modality you lead. You will go beyond formulaic instruction and truly learn to think, teach and coach *creatively* within your classroom and with individual clients.
YTU attracts students of all ages and body types as it breaks down the nuts and bolts of human movement and provides context-based teaching strategies for the classroom, clinic, gym or studio. It interweaves precise anatomy with a yogic lens of awareness, conscious relaxation, and body therapy to help every student live better in their body.

- Become proficient and comfortable with the fundamentals of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.
- Learn a step-by-step process to create memorable, accessible classes and learn to “think out of the boxana.”
