Hydra Yoga Spa’s curriculum is based primarily Eastern medicine, anatomy and pathology which to help understand injury and modifications. Like most yoga trainings we include the study of ancient Ayurveda, chakras, bandas and The Yoga Sutra. We specialize in trainings which augment 200 hour teacher trainings and often teach in one-on-one internships, but we occasionally hold short weekend workshops to promote less pain and more energy in person and in our online community.
