Physiyoga Resistance Band Training

Science Backed Yoga + Mindful Movement Meets



Are you ready to help yourself and/or the clients, students, or patients that you teach and treat create more healthful, expansive, connected, graceful, and embodied movement?


Resistance bands are powerful, portable, scalable, and potent tools that can help you and those you work with move more efficiently and embody movement differently.


This training is designed to help you bridge the gap between the science behind what makes resistance bands such invaluable tools, & your creativity.


You will learn how to purposefully, intelligently, and confidently use bands to build strength, harness stability with mobility, alleviate aches and pains, work with hypermobility, and spark new insight and make changes in the way you, and those you work with, move and feel.

The story behind the bands...

In 2017 I had a severe skiing accident where I fractured my upper arm, collarbone, 6 ribs and sustained a punctured lung and lacerated liver. I was not only in pain, but had no sense of connection to my upper body or breath. I lacked stability, mobility, strength, proprioceptive awareness and any grace or power that once was, went out the window. I developed movement compensations around the pain that bled into other parts of my body and felt so broken.


I started working with resistance bands during my physical therapy rehabilitation sessions and explored how I could use them to help bring the fragmented pieces of myself back together in a holistic way. 


Bands for me were not just a prop to pull and push against, but were a powerful tool for healing.


My experience during this time bloomed into a greater purpose to share the wealth of the bands with my students, colleagues, and other movement professionals and clinicians. Since this time I have taught workshops and classes nationally and internationally with bands and helped my clients find new pathways of connection to their bodies and movement regardless of injury or pain. 


This new online Physiyoga Band Training is the foundation that will help you understand WHY resistance bands are such a powerful and potent tool and how to make changes immediately, not only in your own body but in the people you work with.


This work is deep and potent. It asks patience, inquiry, and slowing down enough to savor and embody the experience. It will nurture your body and brain and bring insight, creativity, and healing to how you move and how you practice.

Q: Who is this training for? 

  • Movement teachers who are comfortable leading classes and are excited and interested in adding a specialty.

  • Physical therapists who also teach yoga or PT’s who treat a lot of yogis and want greater insight into common/frequently done poses in order to treat more effectively.


Q: I’m a brand new teacher, can I take this training? 

  • It depends on how teaching feels for you. We find that it’s hard enough to learn the basics of teaching a class, that adding in new/different elements should wait until you have a baseline of comfort and proficiency in teaching. With that said, learning more is SO IMPORTANT to becoming a better teacher - there are certainly small ways to integrate resistance bands a little at a time, and/or you could keep this training in your back pocket until you’re ready for more. 


Q: What level is this training? 

  • This is a foundational level training. This training addresses common yoga postures and movements that are taught with specific band placement for optimal outcomes


Q: What props do I need for this course? 

  • 6 bands total: FOUR long resistance bands (5-6 ft in length, light-medium resistance), TWO mini-loop bands (1 light resistance and 1 medium-heavy resistance), 2 yoga blocks, 1 blanket or towel.

  • Resistance Band Logistics Guide is available to download after course registration, with direct links for easy ordering and full instructions for preparing your bands.


Q: I’m a member of the Threes Physiyoga Method online studio, is this training included with that membership? 

  • No, this offering is separate from the studio. It is ONLY available for purchase - this is the only way to access the training. 


Q: Can’t anyone pick up a band and start messing around with yoga poses? 

  • Yes, anyone can do that, but this training teaches you about NEUROPLASTICITY, USING THE BANDS FOR SPECIFIC OUTCOMES, JOINT CENTRALIZATION, TENSEGRITY, INTENTION and why this all matters, along with key Physiyoga principals that will make you a more informed teacher. This training teaches you more than “just” band work.
