Can I purchase only Module 1?


Unfortunately it would be impossible to learn everything there is to know in order to teach The IPATH Restorative Yoga effectively in one module. We offer this course to healthcare professionals and expect there to be a certain amount of knowledge already known in anatomy and physiology. The foundation of this course is myofascial release techniques which are taught by many. Since IPATH begins with MFR, there is much more that the teacher would need to learn to comprehend the specifics of integral postual alignment techniques. IPATH Pilates, which is a 20 Hr. weekend course- you may begin your IPATH journey here.




What is IPATH?


IPATH is an acronym for Integral Postural Alignment Techniques. The IPATH Method eliminates back/body pain with a sequence of unique poses. IPATH Restoravtive Yoga releases uses breathwork, props and gravity. IPATH Pilates begins on the mat opening with the Heart Opener, and Soft Bridge poses using yoga blocks to create space for the body- then using core stability and strength exercises which focus on back body/core balance. The IPATH Method philosophy is to work mindfully with "hands-off" poses, along with stillness allowing the body to fall into total bliss while creating space, length and joint alignment.

When you purchase the 75 Hr. Restorative Yoga Fundamental course for $850 USD, you save 25%, since each module if purchased individually is $250 USD.

Will I be expected to buy IPATH® decompression balls or other props?


That depends. Most independant teachers purchase IPATH® decompression balls to use with their students. Studios would expect to purchase them, as a necessary prop as well as yoga blocks. These props are essential to the lenghening, decompression, and alignment phases. All teachers and students are prohibited from using any other type of decompression ball in lieu of the IPATH® ball. We can not guarantee results otherwise. Teachers may retail the props to their students from our wholesale shop, or receive referral commision.

Why IPATH Pilates? What's it all about?


Integral Postural Alignment Techniques, was actually created with pilates students in mind. We decided to take a step back, when we realized many postural issues in pilates classes began with poor stability awareness and poor postural disfunction. After numerous case studies, the integrity of myofascial release along with slow deep somatic positions was the answer to mindful movement. Many of the foundational positions are yoga poses. Yoga and Pilates have always been complimentary practices. Yoga goes to the root of our foundation, which is why taking a step back meant restorative yoga. After the client/student works through postural issues and realignment, lengthening the body, it is then the muscles, joints and bones are prepared for strength and stability work. We highly recommend doing IPATH Restoartive Yoga before emarking on to IPATH Pilates. Teachers tuition $325.00 USD 20 hr. Live weekend course




Has anyone failed this course?


No, though there are some who have decided not to finish the course.




Is it necessary to renew my IPATH certification?


Your IPATH certification is valid for 2 years. If you would like to renew your certification you would need to complete 30 CE credits. CE- continuing education credits can be obtained from any continuing education provider who offers workshops, training courses, lectures, etc. You may also use any IPATH method courses to maintain your cec’s. You also would need to complete 40 teaching hours within two years from the first date of certification, and a bi-annual $30.00 renewal fee. You will be registered as R-IPATH teacher. To maintain the R-IPATH teacher status, you would only need to renew bi-annually once, using the first date of certification. For example; You were certified in March 2019 for IPATH Restorative and completed IPATH Mat Pilates in December 2020. You will need to renew your IPATH certification by March 31, 2021, to satisfy the renewal requirements, and won’t have to renew until March 2023. In this example, the IPATH Mat Pilates covers 15 cec’s, and you would need another 15 along with a total of 40 IPATH teaching hours. This renewal will automatically fulfill the IPATH Mat Pilates cec requirements, and any other IPATH certification course. 75 hr IPATH Restorative Yoga cec = 40 20 hr IPATH Mat Pialtes cec = 15 25 hr IPATH II, deeper injuries/pathology & IPATH prenatal cec = 20 30 hr IPATH Mastertrainer course cec = 25




How do I enroll in the teachers incentive plan?
