Transformational Vinyasa, and Level 1 Orthopedic Yoga Therapy
This training teaches students how to teach Orthopedic Yoga Flow classes. The word “vinyasa” means to connect. A “ Vinyasa flow” class is one in which the poses are connected and move rhythmically from one to the next. This enables the joints to be bathed in synovial fluid, the internal, healing lubricant of the body. In this course, all levels of flow are taught so students will be able to teach in every situation, to all students. Students leave fully prepared to teach all levels of classes ranging from power style, sweaty and exhilarating classes, to gentle, slow therapeutic flows. The best part is, all students will graduate knowing how to support and protect their students, even those working with constraints or injuries. You will never have to say “If this pose doesn’t work for you, feel free to come into Child’s Pose.”; because you will have the knowledge to modify those postures for those students to make it safe for them.

In 2020 Bianca founded drift + oak with the intention to share her love of yoga and wellness with the community. Bianca became a yoga teacher through Michelle Fleming of Sanctuary Studio in Plymouth, MA. She is a 200 Hr E-RYT and working towards her goal of becoming a certified Orthopedic Yoga Therapist. She is also a Wellness Coach, certified in Reiki, Yin, Pre-Natal and Children's Yoga. She is so grateful for the opportunity to now collaborate with Michelle and many other yogis from around the globe to bring this orthopedic yoga training to her studio in Medway, MA. Knowing what she gained from participating in this training six years ago, Bianca believes that she will be able to offer additional insight to anyone going through the program from the perspective of a student and teacher.
Day to day, Bianca's typical style of teaching is a very well-rounded Vinyasa practice incorporating both strong and powerful poses with restorative ones. Her main goal is to always keep her students safe and supported. You can be sure you will walk out of Bianca's classes feeling challenged and refreshed.
