Feel Good Flow
What are the techniques and requirements to ensure your vinyasa flow practice is pain-free, enjoyable, and improves your well-being? To answer, this workshop will have two goals. First: develop, refine, and advance your practice of the primary components of vinyasa, which include sun salutations, chaturangas, and transitional hops and steps. Second: ensure that you enlist these rhythmic movements and breath towards an aim of balancing your nervous system; in other words, feeling calm, feeling creative, feeling good. All levels welcome.
Arm Balance Challenge
Why do we work difficult yoga postures and how can we do so in a way that is skillful, mindful, and compassionate? This workshop will help you find your entry point into arm balances such as bakasana, side plank, and their countless variations in a way that is accessible to all levels. Learn how to see these shapes in all orientations to gravity and re-imagine how arm balances might look in your body.
Beginning with the core and working outward through hip flexibility and shoulder strength, we will embrace together the challenge and joy that these postures provide. All levels welcome.
Confidence in Cueing and Manual Assists (Teachers Workshop)
It is not easy to lead a vinyasa class. Words come fast and furious and potential assists are aimed at moving targets. During this workshop, you will learn how to develop clear teaching objectives, maximise the effectiveness of minimal and no-nonsense cues, and explore a method of assists that empowers your students to experience the depths of their practices. This workshop will be a combination of discussion and practice. Open to teachers of all experience levels
How to Teach Mixed Levels
This is often the most discussed and worry-producing aspect of teaching public classes: how do you teach all the different levels and abilities in one room at one time? Instead of fighting against the reality of the problem, we will learn to embrace and celebrate the challenge by utilizing practical techniques to create an inclusive class environment with options for everyone. Additionally, we will look at the use of language and sequencing structures that allow for customization and modification at many points. This workshop will be a combination of discussion and practice. Open to teachers of all experience levels
