  • What is the IPATH Method?
    IPATH is an acronym for Integral Postural Alignment Therapeutics, founded in 2012 respectively, as a style of yoga with the intention of relieving chronic pain, improving neuromuscular function, and harmonizing mental health conditions. The IPATH Method integrates yoga tools such as restorative yoga poses, breathwork, and somatic movement with sequences that ultimately eliminate back/body pain along with a benefit of reeducating "form and function" for the purpose of maintaining good posture off the mat. Therapeutic practices are typically practiced one on one. This unique method cultivates an awareness of potential immobility, imbalances and restrictions that may arise using five integral poses and sequences making the practice accessible to group classes taught at yoga studios, gyms and clinical facilities. Helping more to heal! Many come to know and enjoy the transformation of IPATH after other passive forms of release have failed. IPATH mat pilates is a compliment to IPATH yoga. IPATH yoga is a release and joint freeing practice. It creates space and decompresses the spine, creating a pathway for the body to balance. IPATH mat pilates, will build strength, mobility, using classical pilates exercises, along with the philosophy of Integral Postural Alignment Therapeutics. Review our training curriculum
  • Which languages are available for the IPATH® training?
    Currently English, Italian, and Spanish. The German translation will be added in 2025. We are seeking Master trainers for Brazil to add Portuguese to our training.
  • What is the difference between restorative yoga and therapeutic yoga?
    While Yoga Therapy isn't a new modality, more and more people are realizing the value of a practice which heals the whole human body and its systems. Yoga practices typically focus on physical postures and breathwork. Restorative practices use props to help the body deeply relax. Yoga therapeutic practices tailor postures and various breathing sequences for specific health conditions.
  • Why do I need to buy the IPATH® decompression balls? I already have a tennis ball I can use.
    Teachers are given a pair of decompression balls to practice with during the training. The IPATH balls are soft and specifically designed to decompress the spine and align joints in the body. In the IPATH Method, we don't advise using tennis balls to manipulate fascia, since it has been known to bruise fascia. There are other more dense balls or rollers which certified and trained teachers use that can be very effective for myofascial release. BUT and big BUT! We don't use our IPATH ball for myofascial release. We begin MFR using held poses and yoga blocks for a more organic experience.
  • Are there tests? If so, what happens if I don't pass the tests?
    Each module progressively builds upon competencies learned in each module, creating safe, and effective sequences in preparation for Module 4 case studies and practicum. Assessments and testing is an important step to discover gaps in comprehension. Our tests provide learning outcomes that describe measurable skills, abilities, knowledge or values that students should be able to demonstrate as a result of completing each module throughout the course. ​​Our testing enables better metacognitive monitoring for both students and teachers because it provides feedback as to how well learning is progressing. Our rubric grading system is set up to help better evaluate students' individual strengths and weaknesses. The IPATH yoga program includes 5 mentor hours, which can be used to help trainees who fall behind.
