Yapana® (yaa-pa-na, like ahh-sa-na), an Ancient Sanskrit Word Meaning the Support and Extension of Life.

Yapana® yoga practice is an innovative blend of vinyasa flow to warm and prepare the body for poses that are held dynamically and restoratively using props for therapeutic support. Developed and presently exclusively by Leeann Carey Yoga, Yapana® practice is easily modified and adapted to meet the individual needs of students at all levels of experience and skill.

The seven Yapana® master intensives provide the yoga instructor with a unique set of skills and the opportunity for advanced 500 RYT yoga certification and Yāpana yoga teacher certification. Three-day intensives (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) include Foundation, Developing the Eye, Mapping the Body, Structural Assessment for Yoga Therapy, Anatomy: Form & Function and Stretch One-On-One. The Therapeutic Partner Practice module is two days.

Each intensive includes off-site homework. Fees range from $245 for a 2-day module and $345 for a 3-day module based on 1-month advance registration. Intensive hours are typically Friday from 5pm – 9pm and Saturday & Sunday from 9am to 6pm, but may vary depending on location. Each intensive offers Yoga Alliance and ACE continuing education credits.

All of the required Yapana® yoga teacher training materials can be purchased here by clicking on the hyperlink of each item located on each master intensive description page.
