WORKSHOP + 300HR MODULE

Props + Hands-On Adjustments

IN-STUDIO or ONLINE

Sat + Sun, Oct 29-30
9:30am-5:30pm

In this immersive workshop we will explore the use of props and physical adjustments while teaching.

This module will incorporate:

  • How to use props to make poses more accessible, reveal patterns in our body, and make poses more challenging and fun
  • Using all the props in various ways to facilitate restoration, therapeutics, corrective to deep alignment
  • Explore adjustments for safety, deepening the posture, and guiding energy

Props – When we start to explore asana we start to open the doorway to our patterns. This includes the good ones and the not so good ones. When we use props in yoga we are invited to cultivate discernment over self judgement.

The use of props brings us so much into the present moment, we can’t help but be present as a result. We can more clearly see the things that we resist and the things that are causing us discomfort.

In this module, you will learn creativity and accountability with how to use and sequence with props. You will learn many valuable ways to support yourself and your students.

Adjustments – We have been moving through a great transformation as a yoga culture in the U.S when it comes to hands-on adjustments. What a pivotal time to have conversation around what it means to give and receive adjustments in a yoga class!

As a yoga teacher one of the biggest gifts we can give to our students is meeting them where they are as well as mirroring back to them their innate potential.

“We learn from our students as much as they learn from us. We’re all walking each other home.” – Ram Dass

All levels and bodies are welcome!

This is a 15 hour module that counts as YTT hours towards 500hr RYT. You do not have to be enrolled in the 300 HR program to participate. Modules are open to all experience levels and anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of the practice.

ONLINE WORKSHOP

Self-Study + Restorative Practice for Ethnic and Race-Based Stress and Trauma with Dr. Gail Parker

Tue, May 9, 5:30-8:30pm

In a racialized world we are all, regardless of race or ethnicity, whether directly or indirectly, affected by race and racism. Because the cultural norm in the United States has been to remain silent regarding its impact, we are embedded in a culture of unexamined untreated, unhealed ethnic and racial stress and trauma. Addressing these emotional wounds requires that each one of us take an honest look at the wounding we have endured and the wounding we have inflicted on others. In order for lasting change to occur, self-reflection and self-study, svadhyaya are required.

In this webinar tools will be offered, through a yogic lens, that can help you compassionately explore, address and transcend your own stress and trauma regarding race and ethnicity, allowing you to engage in emotionally restorative relationships with others.

5:30p-8:00p Lecture & 8:00p-8:30p Q&A

Teacher: Dr. Gail Parker, Ph.D., C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, YACEP

Location: Online

Cost: $75
