Why TruMantra

We know that not every student learns the same way. That's why we like to say, "We teach the way YOU learn."

In today's rapidly evolving educational landscape, hybrid learning has emerged as a powerful approach that combines the best of both worlds: traditional in-person instruction and the flexibility of online learning. Our institution is committed to harnessing the potential of hybrid learning to create engaging, inclusive, and effective educational experiences for our students.

Hybrid learning as an educational approach combines traditional classroom instruction with online learning activities. It seeks to leverage the benefits of both in-person and virtual learning environments to create a dynamic and flexible educational experience. In a hybrid learning model, students interact face-to-face with teachers and peers during designated class sessions while utilizing digital tools and resources to complete assignments and participate in online discussions. This approach allows for greater personalization and adaptability, as students learn at their own pace and access materials from anywhere with an internet connection. Hybrid learning promotes active participation, fosters independent learning skills, and prepares students for the digital age by integrating technology into the educational process. It offers a balance between the structure and social interaction of traditional classrooms and the convenience and accessibility of online learning, making it a compelling option in today's rapidly evolving educational landscape.

Our dedicated team of educators has designed a dynamic curriculum that maximizes the potential of hybrid learning. Students can access course materials and interactive resources and collaborate with peers and instructors through our intuitive online learning platform. This digital ecosystem enhances the learning experience by providing multimedia content, virtual simulations, real-time feedback, and opportunities for asynchronous and synchronous interactions.

Flexibility lies at the core of our hybrid learning approach. Students can customize their learning journey according to their unique needs and preferences. They can attend on-campus classes, participate in virtual sessions, or opt for a combination. This flexibility empowers learners to balance their academic pursuits with work, personal commitments, and other responsibilities, ensuring a learner-centric experience.

Our experienced faculty members are adept at delivering engaging and interactive instruction in physical and virtual realms. They employ a variety of teaching methodologies, including lectures, discussions, group activities, multimedia presentations, and virtual simulations, to cater to different learning styles and promote active participation. They also provide timely guidance, mentorship, and support to students, nurturing their growth and success in the hybrid learning environment.

Through our commitment to fostering hybrid learning, we aim to create a vibrant educational community that thrives on collaboration, innovation, and continuous improvement. We embrace emerging technologies, research-backed pedagogical approaches, and data-driven insights to enhance the effectiveness and outcomes of hybrid learning experiences.

Core Principles

Presence: Being present, mindful, loving, clear, and conscious
Excellence: Educational excellence through personal learning styles
Alignment: Alignment of life's values with life's work
Care: Exquisite care of self and others
Empowerment: Life learning through personal inquiry and transformation

Let's explore these core principles in more detail.


Presence is the deep listening and abundant attention required to be a great therapist. When a therapist is truly present with their client, the work becomes exponentially more powerful and effective. It is the desire of our staff to graduate competent, mindful, creative, present therapists who have developed their own abilities to visualize and understand anatomy, coupled with the sensitivity to palpate the whole person, all while listening deeply.

Educational Excellence

TruMantra encourages schools to offer a variety of feedback opportunities for students to discover how they best learn. To that end, and central to our educational philosophy is what's known as Perceptual Thinking Patterns (PTP): the idea that each person learns through visual, auditory, and kinesthetic means (with varying degrees of immediacy). Therefore, an effort is made in each class to present the curriculum in all three modes. This simple philosophy greatly enhances students' grasp of the materials and concepts presented. It is NOT the same old classroom where you may have struggled. It is a richer and deeper experiential learning that allows schools to teach the way students truly learn. In fact, it is very common that students who have struggled to achieve in high school and college flourish and prosper within such a learning system.

Additionally, small classes allow for students to receive ample attention from staff, and TruMantra encourages small classes. Teachers in such programs bring decades of experience in both bodywork and facilitation to their students, and every effort is made on the part of the faculty to provide students with a rich and diverse learning environment. It is our belief that when various dimensions of personal experience are allowed expression, personal and collective development is enhanced. So we are all each other's teachers and students.


We encourage a vocation that supports integrity, honesty, and compassion. Students benefit from aligning their work with their values. We believe that as we increase the awareness and kindness with which we meet ourselves, physically and psychologically, we enhance the sensitivity and kindness with which we meet our families, our communities, and our clients.


TruMantra is dedicated to the path of peace, compassion, and honesty. Our philosophy believes in incorporating comfortable, practical body mechanics into each modality, and in supporting students to establish postural patterns that will serve them well over many years of practice. TruMantra's distinctive focus on therapist self-care and our approach to professional communication skills can enhance every course and uniquely prepare students for long, fruitful, healthy careers.


Our philosophy's purpose is to cultivate the space where deep learning and transformation can occur. We believe that when various dimensions of personal experience are allowed expression, our irrepressible human desire to learn and explore is enhanced. To achieve this, TruMantra promotes an active learning community, which embraces the mystery and curiosity of self-knowledge, tolerance, and understanding. It is only by embracing these things that a person can truly learn an art like massage. A school that follows TruMantra philosophy encourages you to lean into your learning as you explore new ways of perceiving, being, thinking, and living.
