Yamuna Body Rolling Intensive Course with Elizabeth Demmel
July 27 – August 6, 2018 except July 30, from 10 am – 4 pm
This training covers Phase 1, Phase 2A, Phase 2B.

Anyone who has had some experience with YBR®, wishes to go deeper into their own self-evaluation and possibly become a certified practitioner is welcome to enroll in the Phase 1 part of our certification program. To progress into the second phase of the program an application must be submitted.

The YBR® Certification program encompasses 66 class hours divided into two phases. All classes are accredited by: NCBTMB, Florida State Continuing Education, NATA,PMA, Yoga Alliance and the College of Massage Therapists of British Colombia.

Note: You are not certified to teach after completing Phase 1.

Experiential anatomy lessons are the core of the YBR® curricula. This provides students with the foundation needed to develop confident therapeutic skills. We start you at the beginning feeling your own muscles from origin to insertion. Knowing how to find and feel your own muscles are crucial to problem solving and helping others to heal themselves. Teaching skills are gradually integrated with ongoing study and practice of YBR routines so that students get YBR into their own bodies and they empower their own students and clients to become fixers of their own bodies.

Early registration discounts of $75 when the full tuition fee is paid 6 weeks in advance of a training (USA only). Trainings taught by Yamuna are not discounted. Contact education@yamunausa.com for more information.
Registration form is to be filled out and returned to; education@yamunausa.com

It will be possible to take the 2 practical exams on the day after the Intensive is finished. The written exam is open-book and can be taken home and sent in when completed.

Note: it is possible to enroll in just Phase 1 or Phase 2A or 2B. Please contact Isabel at education@yamunausa.com for more information.

Elizabeth Demmel, L.M.T

Elizabeth is a licensed massage therapist. She studied YBL with Yamuna when Yamuna was still living in Spain back in the early 90’s. She’s considered a senior practitioner and has been doing this full time ever since. She was the first to introduce YBL and YBR to FL. Elizabeth is a body artist. She molds the pliable clay of tissue, chiseling the holding patterns in the body; so it can once again become supple and alive!

She is passionate about teaching and sharing this work around the world. “The wonderful thing about this work is that its allowed me to reinvent myself depending on the economy. Whether its doing YBL sessions, teaching YBR certification trainings, master classes, assisting Yamuna in her Retreats, co-creating with other practitioners and teachers in the community, introducing YBR to Massage Schools, etc. it’s so organic!”


Under the leadership of Yamuna Zake, a master teacher of body sustainability, what began as singular dedication with focused hands-on body work, has evolved into a global brand with a network of over 450 certified practitioners and the attendance of over 2,000 holistic practitioners in Yamuna branded teacher training and workshops worldwide.

Today the Company is a leading source of education for teachers, therapists, and fitness instructors interested in expanding their knowledge in BodySustainability which can enhance their core expertise, and often lead to a longer term interest in becoming a certified Yamuna instructor.

Complementing this focus, the Company markets and sells a curriculum of exercises, and a proprietary line of body rolling balls for teachers, students, and studios. The Company also produces an exclusive line of beauty blends and therapeutic remedies which are distributed by luxury spas, boutique studios, and fine department stores.
