Integral Postural Alignment Therapeutics 

  • What is the IPATH Method?
    The IPATH ®Method is an evolutionary therapeutic practice to release chronic muscle contractions, stress, and realign the human body. We address the major joints of the body, as well as the fascia, organs, and bones, resulting in greater ease of movement. The secret to the success of IPATH’ing gives hope to so many pain sufferers. The body contructive rest , melts- letting go of stress and tension, while at the same time guided with held restorative postures, and somatic movement that free the joints and balances the whole body. This practice is suitable for all ages and genders. more info: IPATH is an acronym for Integral Postural Alignment Therapeutics., a style of yoga with the intention of relieving chronic pain, improve neuromuscular function, and harmonise mental health conditions. The IPATH Method yoga tools such as restorative yoga poses, breathwork, somatic movement with sequences that ultimately eliminates back/body pain along with a benefit of reeducating form and function for the purpose maintaining good posture off the mat. Therapeutic practices are typically practiced one on one. This method uses 5 specific pose sequences , making this practice accessible for group classes taught at yoga studios, gyms and clinical facilities. Helping more to heal! The first phase of the sequence are myofascial release techniques, and held positions that ultimately correct musculoskeletal dysfunction. Each student is encouraged to feel how breathwork, along with anatomical positions can heal the body safely. Many come to know and enjoy the transformation of IPATH after other passive forms of release have failed. IPATH mat pilates is a compliment to IPATH yoga. IPATH yoga is a release and joint freeing practice. It creates space and decompresses the spine, creating a pathway for strength work, which is the purpose of IPATH mat pilates. IPATH mat pilates, will build strength, mobility, using classical pilates exercises, along with the philosopshy of Integral Postural Alignment Techniques. If you have chronic back body pain, we encourage you to take a 30-minute assessment to learn the value and benefits that IPATH yoga and pilates have to offer. The 60 -90 minute practices are designed to offer physical, emotional, and mental wellness relief.
  • Which languages are available for the IPATH® training?
    Currently English, Italian, and Spanish. The German translation will be added in 2025. We are seeking Mastertrainers for Brazil to add Portuguese to our training.
  • What is the difference between restorative yoga and therapeutic yoga?
    While Yoga Therapy isn't a new modality, more and more people are realizing the value of a practice which heals the whole human body and its systems. Yoga practices typically focus on physical postures and breathwork. Restorative practices use props to help the body deeply relax. Yoga therapeutic practices tailor postures and breathing for specific health conditions. They may adapt postures or hold them longer to meet therapeutic goals like reducing stress, pain or increasing flexibility.
  • Why do I need to buy the IPATH® decompression balls? I already have a tennis ball I can use.
    Teachers are given 1 decompression ball for teacher training. The IPATH balls are soft and specifically made to decompress the spine and align joints in the body. Tennis balls aren't soft and have been used for fascial release. In the IPATH Method, we don't not advise using a tennis balls to manipulate fascia, since it has been known to bruise fascia. There are other more dense balls or rollers when used with a certified and trained teacher can be very effective for myofascial release. BUT and big BUT! We don't use our IPATH ball for myofascial release. We begin MFR using held poses and yoga blocks for a more organic experience. Just think for $22.00 and a few yoga blocks, you can completely lengthen your body and end chronic pain.
  • Are there tests? If so, what happens if I don't pass the tests?
    Each module has tests and ways to assess learning outcomes. Trainees are given a syllabus, which includes desired outcomes for each module. Testing with measurable skills, abilities, knowledge or values so trainees are able to demonstrate the practice is an important component to learning, and completing the course successfully. Each training module is planned and specifially arranged as a prequsite to advance to the sequential module, taking much of the guessing out of the trainees attempt to learn. The training sessions are designed to enable trainees to master the content of the course by applying and demonstrating the techniques. Our teacher trainers communicate expetations , along with providing test rubric information as part of the training syllabus, and how tests/quizzes are secured. The tests are graded and tranees must pass 75% of the questions, demonstrations, written content, true/false, questions with accuracy. If a trainee falls below 75%, they will work with a mentor before retaking the test. A total of 5 hours are available and included with the tuition.
