You’re no stranger to the world of movement. When you’re not on your mat practicing, you’re likely finding a way to learn more about the body, biomechanics and the nervous system. You follow some amazing movers on social media. Your bookshelf is stacked with resources that keep you up-to-date on hot topics like pain science, flexibility training and somatic exploration.
There’s no shortage of information in your head. And yet, when you attempt to combine everything you’re learning with what you already know and love - yoga! - things feel disconnected.
Detour Method Online bridges the gap between what’s typically taught in 200HR yoga teacher training programs and everything else you need to know about moving with integrity.
Whether you consider yourself a movement enthusiast or a movement educator, DMO will ask you to start thinking critically about how we view, talk about and teach yoga asana. Together, we’ll tackle questions like:
This course will challenge you to continually question what you’re doing (on and off the mat) and why you’re doing it. Because we know what you’re capable of, your instructors won’t settle for mediocrity. There’s never been a more important time to stand apart from the masses. Commit to Detouring from the mainstream and you’ll have all the support needed to succeed on this new, exciting trajectory.
As humans first, educators second, we believe in creating learning environments where it’s ok to question everything and still feel supported along the way.
We also know what it’s like to live and work in injury-riddled bodies. DMO is a reflection of the research, unlearning and relearning that allowed us to arrive at a place where physical movement provides nourishment, not punishment. We’re grateful to our global community of Detourists like you who crave an alternate path of renewed inspiration.
