Can I purchase only Module 1?
Unfortunately it would be impossible to learn everything there is to know in order to teach The IPATH Restorative Yoga effectively in one module. We offer this course to healthcare professionals and expect there to be a certain amount of knowledge already known in anatomy and physiology. The foundation of this course is myofascial release techniques which are taught by many. Since IPATH begins with MFR, there is much more that the teacher would need to learn to comprehend the specifics of integral postual alignment techniques.
What is IPATH?
IPATH is an acronym for Integral Postural Alignment Techniques. The IPATH Method eliminates back/body pain with a sequence of unique poses. IPATH Restoravtive Yoga releases uses breathwork, props and gravity. IPATH Pilates begins on the mat opening with the Heart Opener, and Soft Bridge poses using yoga blocks to create space for the body- then using core stability and strength exercises which focus on back body/core balance. The IPATH Method philosophy is to work mindfully with "hands-off" poses, along with stillness allowing the body to fall into total bliss while creating space, length and joint alignment.

That depends. Most independant teachers purchase IPATH® decompression balls to use with their students. Studios would expect to purchase them, as a necessary prop as well as yoga blocks.

We can not guarantee results otherwise.
