Dr. Foster's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Foster "Ariele Foster, PT, DPT, E-RYT 500 is a doctor of physical therapy, yoga teacher since 2001, anatomy teacher for yoga teacher trainings, and founder of Yoga Anatomy Academy. She has a passion for creative, strength-based yoga instruction and for making yoga anatomy accessible. Through Yoga Anatomy Academy, Ariele runs the Online Yoga Anatomy Mentorship for yoga teachers and dedicated students of yoga. The Mentorship examines how yoga asana can better align with individual anatomy, best evidence, and real-world function. Her interdisciplinary yoga teaching, workshops, and retreats are grounded in both the compassionate approach of Kripalu Yoga and her deep understanding of neuro-musculoskeletal well-being from working with thousands of patients. Ariele's physical therapy practice is founded upon treating the whole person. She uses hands-on manual therapy techniques along with precise, targeted strength training, myofascial release and neuromuscular re-integration to achieve optimal recovery for patients. Ariele has completed yoga teacher trainings in Kripalu, Anusara, Therapeutics, Hatha Yoga and multiple alignment-based vinyasa styles. She lives in Washington, DC."
