The philosophy of Primal Therapeutics and Applied Herbalism is to learn and speak through the inherently cooperative interfaces of applied anatomy and energetics as they're presented through both our bodies and the bodies of the plants we work with. As a teacher and therapist, you will learn to empower your students through an understanding that we are born to move, we are capable of moving, and that it's through awareness and cooperation that healing is possible.

​We are naturally dynamic, strong, flexible, and deeply intuitive. Our bodies are born to move and to heal. In our modern world, too much repetition often leads to stagnation, disassociation, boredom, and pain. Healthy movement is diverse movement.


Primal Vinyasa is an intelligent, functional mobility training method teaching the skills needed for progress on one's own terms, while transcending the boundaries of traditional yoga practice.


Tap into your strong center through a thoughtful progression of strength training and mind-body awareness practices. Remember your innate capacity for relaxed, balanced, and powerful movement. ​
