 Mindful Practices & Mapping the Energy Body through Meridians

Structural Restoration - the Nervous System & Neuroplasticity

Yin & Restorative Yoga Asana

Soundhealing to Soothe the Subtle Body 

This training intensive will focus on the facilitation of Yin & Restorative Yoga for trauma healing and psychological wellness. Using philosophical cornerstones of Buddhism and Chinese Medicine, we will investigate methods to rest in the immediacy of the moment and heal ourselves and our practitioners. 

As Yoga facilitators and practitioners, we must acknowledge every body comes with either recent or ancient wounds to their yoga mat. Integrating wisdom disciplines with the psychological understanding of the nervous system, musculo-skeletal response to stress, and longevity of connective tissue, we will provide a format for responding to the fluctuations of a life lived in awareness.

This course offers advanced anatomy, Yin & Yang Posture Clinics, Restorative Yoga Workshops, Meridian Theories: Earth Water Fire Metal Wood Elements, Soundhealing, Neuro-physiology of the Autonomic Nervous System, and Meditation methodology. 


"This training has transformed my perspective on how Yin can heal the physical by unlocking the energy flow of the meridians pathways, while creating space for a deeper spiritual connection." 

"Kali provides the keys to the kingdom linking body, mind and breathe with subtle nuances enriched with her deep understanding of the knowledge of Yin Yoga. From the way she utilizes her vocals to move you through a posture or her creative way of breaking down the meridian channels and elements I felt my thirst for the awareness and insight into the Yin practice quenched a new depth of understanding of my body as well as a deeper mindful expansion of boundless nature for practioners."
