Authentic Movements is both a school and an idea. As a school (Yoga Alliance Registered), it is a continued education platform providing online and in-person study in the form of 200HR & 500HR teacher trainings, retreat intensives, and detailed workshops (remote or in a city near you). There is something for all-levels, with more coming soon.
As an idea, Authentic Movements proposes that everyone can embrace both intricate, anatomically-based alignment as well as free-form, creativity-inpsired movements. And in fact….it is only through the combination of both that we can learn to move safely, but also authentically in our practice, and in life. Join us! Together we can explore, create, and grow.

*NEW NEW NEW* This course has been adapted from our in-person Practice & Teaching Accessible inversions course. All content is pre-recorded but unlike the other modules in the Hybrid 300HR Program this course includes personalized video feedback from the instructors (Erin or Stevi). Expect a challenging course full of gratifying movement classes, applied anatomy lab, practice teaching/sequencing, and recovery work. While the focus of the training is finding confidence upside down (arm balances, headstand, forearm stand, handstand, pressing), many of the full body activators and alignment drills can be sprinkled throughout your movement practice to help find fluidity in all transitions, on and off the mat.
It can feel strange talking about money or marketing when paired with your movement and teachings. You might not naturally flock to the more administrative or analytical subjects of legal and financial responsibilities of being self-employed and/or working under a studio umbrella. Perhaps you’re overwhelmed by the idea of extending your offerings through things like workshops, retreats, or even teacher trainings.
