ADVANCED ASSISTING

Learn how to assist your students in a safe, powerful, non-invasive way. Understand just the right way to support them in expanding to where they feel comfortable and safe. Revisiting assisting in backbends, inversions and other advanced postures. Revisit some tricky poses that are risky and challenging. And while you’re at it, go back to the basics of proper alignment! Discuss trends that are hot topics in healthy alignment and discuss and perform!

Aligning with the flow in your own body, breath and movement is the simplest way to return to your own body’s harmony. It is too easy to get out of alignment with the way we eat, drink, process information and basically live this human existence. During this workshop we will revisit basic principles of alignment that will help you refine your postures for more connection and sustainability in your practice. Because of this you will not only be able to prevent injury and find deeper variations of the postures, but you will also experience a deeper connection with this practice off your mat and into the world which is where the real yoga begins.


INVERSIONS AND ARM BALANCES

Keep your students safe while bringing them to the edge of their practice. Learn how to share the love of inversions and arm balancing will all levels of students.  Develop techniques that support everyone attending your class so they feel strong, empowered and ready to touch the edge of their practice.   Want to learn to use your abdominal muscles properly; truly finding freedom  and strength in some fun postures?  Fearful of going upside down?  Core stabilization improves your postural alignment, relieves low back pain and leaves you with an overall feeling of internal strength and confidence.  We explore the foundation of arm balancing, the technicalities of leaving the ground on our hands and the buoyant mindset needed to maintain the balance. We’ll begin with Bakasana (Crow) and explore other poses such as Side Crow. Flying Pigeon, Grasshopper, Eka Pada Koundinyasana, Handstand, Headstand, Forearm Balance, Scorpion and many other variations. Beginners will learn how to enter these poses, advanced practitioners will learn new entries and possibilities. Come with questions, playfulness and leave with a renewed outlook on what you THINK you can do and what you CAN REALLY do!


INTUITIVE SEQUENCING

Create a sustainable, exciting, sought after classes, workshops and retreats for your students so they can’t wait to come back and share the love with others! Start with a basic theme for your class --- create a dharma, use pranayam, asana sequences, and chants to bring it home! Learn how to weave your teaching into something that is more than sharing the love of yoga to more of a way of living your yoga OFF your mat! 

Design classes that leave people waiting and longing for more. Not only that but, use these themes for social media and blog posts, creating a deeper connection with your students and a more compassionate observation of yourself. Learn how to theme classes based on the Yamas and Niyamas, Chakras, Astral Energy or any thought or idea that you are inspired to explore with your students. Create a single class or even a week long workshop! Leave with sequences and programs that can be designed to be duplicated and utilized over and over again.
