Online Biomechanics Training for Yoga

As yoga has grown throughout the world, so has yoga-related injury; thus, there is an unmet need for basic understanding of human movement mechanics in the greater yoga, fitness, wellness, campus, and healthcare community. There are so many opinions and contradictions on how to approach yoga asana that it can be confusing for even an experienced, educated, and well intentioned teacher, therapist, or practitioner.
Research is limited, tradition is diverse, and experience varies. 

Learn more about how yoga can transform your life. 

In this interview on the Into Healing Pod/Show, Stephanie shares her journey about the power of yoga to support growth, heal trauma, live life, and to reclaim joy, and how SAYF Training can be a part of that expansion:

Short Excerpt on Why SAYF:

SAYF Training Offers So Much:


  • In Lesson 1, we learn about joint activation and muscle contraction, the importance of language in reducing the likelihood of injury, and how tissues get injured and the simplest ways to reduce the likelihood of that happening that can be applied to any pose or movement.

  • Learn up-to-date information on yoga asana and human movement mechanics.

  • Explore skeletal, soft tissue, subtle energy, and muscle anatomy as it applies to yoga asana.

  • Expand your language to offer more asana options in a way that helps every student to feel equally welcome and successful.

  • In Lesson 2, we learn how the tradition of the bandhas act as energetic foundations and tissue activation to better stabilize & naturally align the body in asana.

  • Apply critical thinking and guidelines that can be applied to most yoga asana "styles" and approaches to reduce the likelihood of injury.

  • In Lesson 3, we learn to "respect the risks" of some of the most popular poses by offering options to vary load and range of motion for individual needs.

  • Learn through a variety of methods including: text, videos, images, diagrams, stress-free quizzes and a final exam.

  • This course is 20 CE hours and may be eligible for professional continuing education for your yoga, therapeutic, or movement modalities and certifications.

  • Be rewarded with discounted liability insurance through BeYogi for those who are SAYF-Certified.

  • Add an earned credential to your name: Taylor Doe, SAYF, LMT, YACEP, ERYT 200

“Feeling tremendous improvement in my skills as a teacher. Sharing SAYF with my students

in each and every movement, even subtle ones, creates an atmosphere of trust
and knowledge of the ranges we all experience.”

~ Laura Ashland, RYT 500, SAYF
