Continuing Education for Yoga Teachers

Continuing Education for Yoga Teachers

We offer a series of Continuing Education classes for Teachers and Teachers in Training in the fall and the spring. Paxson Yoga Center/Gudmestad Yoga Tradition has been sharing yoga with the Portland community for over 30 years. Julie Gudmestad, Physical Therapist, Certified Yoga Therapist, E-RYT 500 and founder of Gudmestad Yoga has dedicated her career to combining the practice of yoga with the knowledge and benefits of physical therapy. Paxson Yoga Center is carrying that mission forward.

These Continuing Education classes will be taught via Zoom and recorded, the same system as our Fall Term classes. Students will have access to the recording for three months after the class occurs.

Yoga Alliance Continuing Ed credit available.

Hands, Wrists, Shoulders: Preparation for Weight-Bearing Poses

Sunday, May 2, 2021

3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Julie Gudmestad, PT, E-RYT 500


Many people come to Yoga with weak, stiff arms and shoulders, which makes weight-bearing on their arms especially challenging. Teachers can help students prepare, by stretching and strengthening of essential muscles, which can open up a whole world of Yoga pose possibilities. This class will also include some tips to help decrease strain on vulnerable hand, wrist, and shoulder joints.
