Wisdom Warriors

Stronger and Fearless.

Keep your practice strong and vital into your 40’s, 50’s and beyond. Wisdom Warriors™ is a 12 hour training for teachers and dedicated yoga practitioners of all ages who wish to learn more about how to sustain a strong and safe yoga practice after the age of 50.

 Desirée Rumbaugh teams up with Karen Church, PT, CFMT to offer a lively and informative multi-media presentation. Digital images feature functional anatomy, posture & movement and asana practice. Our intention is to provide clear guidance for students impacted by age related issues such as arthritis or joint replacements in order to sustain a strong and vital yoga practice. Format: Multi-media, discussion and asana.

These trainings have been an amazing opportunity for Desirée and I to innovatively integrate our work together. Desirée and I presented Wisdom Warriors at Shakti Yoga Des Moines, Iowa in 2017. It was very exciting to see this same integration of alignment based yoga and functional manual therapy in Des Moines. Matt Brevard and his staff have been an excellent physical therapy resource to the Shakti Yoga community. Physical therapy and yoga at it’s best!

In 2018, Desirée and I presented in St. Paul, MN, Schereville, Indiana and Edwards, Colorado. We travelled to Singapore and Zurich, Switzerland in September with Desirée’s husband Andrew Rivin.  To preview video by Karen Church, click here.

“It is almost a week after this TT with Desiree, Karen and Andrew, and I’m still full of superlatives when describing this event. Suffice to say it was the most important Yoga workshop I attended to date. I’m already making plans to attend the same workshop is Grand Rapids or Atlanta.”  Ed, Participant from DIG YOGA, Lambertville, NJ July  24-25, 2014.
