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. 

Upcoming Wisdom Warriors:

Cedar Rapids, IA  January 9-10, 2020

 San Miguel, Mexico February 21-23, 2020

We have offered this training in the USA, Europe and Asia since 2013. They have been an amazing opportunity for Desirée and I to innovatively integrate our work together of alignment based yoga and functional manual therapy. 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 and returned to Zurich, Switzerland in September with Desirée’s husband Andrew Rivin.  To preview video by Karen Church, click here. In 2019 Desirée turned 60 in Flagstaff, Arizona and we celebrated with her family in Phoenix. We also presented in Atlanta Georgia, Billings, Montana, and Cleveland Ohio.

“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.
