Wisdom Warriors

YOGA AFTER 40 or 50: 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 stay safe and strong in their asana practice after the age of 40 (abroad) and 50 in the USA.

 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: Discussion and asana which includes standing and seated poses, inversions, arm balances and backbends.

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!

Desirée and I presented in St. Paul, MN in February and in Schereville, Indiana in April, 2018. They were both wonderful gatherings with fun loving yogis and an eagerness to learn. We are super psyched to return to Zurich, Switzerland in September. We will be joined in Singapore and Zurich by Desirée’s husband Andrew Rivin. Wisdom Warriors is coming to Colorado, November 8-9, 2018! Located at Edwards Interfaith Chapel that boasts mountain views and accommodation at the Inn & Suites at Riverwalk make this Colorado venue is an ideal retreat setting. Stay for the weekend workshop with Desiree to reinforce the teachings of  Wisdom Warriors.

“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.
