Roll + Release Teacher Training

The Roll Model® Method, Roll + Release 30hr Certificate Training with Lee-Anne Heron ND, EYRT, YACEP

“I have been practicing yoga since before the millennium and in clinical practice as a naturopath for almost as long. This rolling practice on the yoga tune up balls has invited me to experience parts of my body like never before, my spatial awareness (that is awareness of my body in space and body part in relationship with body part and in relationship with breath) has significantly enhanced my physical and mindfulness practices in yoga (finding different range & mobility even after 10yrs of practice as well as heightened awareness) and other movements which translates to life off the mat and I am so inspired to share this practice.” Lee-Anne Heron ND, ERYT, YACEP

No pre-requisites. This is a training for anyone who is interested in self-care and to empower clients, students or family with self-care practices.
