Wisdom Warriors

YOGA AFTER 50: Stronger and Fearless.

Keep your practice strong and vital into your 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 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: Discussion and asana which includes standing and seated poses, inversions, arm balances and backbends.



Upcoming Wisdom Warriors:

These trainings have been an amazing opportunity for Desirée and I to innovatively integrate our work together. In October 2017, Desirée and I presented Wisdom Warriors at Shakti Yoga Des Moines. 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!

We presented in St. Paul, MN in February 2018. Hats off to our impeccable host Ali Certain,”Begin with Intention.” We had a great yoga venue (Healing Elements) and were well taken care of by this vibrant and loving yoga community. 

Desiree and I look forward to several Wisdom Warriors trainings this year. 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

Lastly congratulations to Desirée and Michelle Marchildon for their recent book release: Fearless after Fifty: How to Thrive with Grace Grit and Yoga.

“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.
