Workshops
Based   around   themes,   our   workshops   are   for   those   who   want   to   advance   their   practice.   Lasting   from   two   to five   hours,   the   themes   range   from   practical   subjects   such   as   science   and   anatomy   to   the   more   esoteric practices   such   as   meditation   and   relaxation,   mantra,   and   pranayama.   Yoga   is   such   a   vast   subject   (it   is   5000 years   old,   after   all!),   there   is   always   something   new   to   learn,   regardless   of   how   many   years   you   have   been practising.

We study: Sequencing for alignment based classes Introduction to sequencing templates Sequencing for repetition of shape and action Sequencing for vinyasa classes Sequencing for creativity Sequencing for peak pose classes Sequencing for beginners Sequencing for student progress in one class and over time Asana session: Stand This   standing   pose   class   will   ground   you   and   prepare   you   for   whatever   lies   ahead,   as   standing   poses   prepare you    for    every    other    type    of    pose.    Expect    clear    instructions,    step    by    step    sequencing,    strong    work    in fundamental poses, refinements and some good old fashioned standing poses. DAY 2 SPEAK: Communicating in the Seat of the Teacher Say what you mean, mean what you say. Refine   your   use   of   language   so   that   every   word   conveys   your   meaning.   We   will   refine   verbal   cues   so   that   your voice is more potent and your instructions are more resonant: Potent and accurate verbs Active voice and passive voice Instructions for what to do Instructions for how to do it Instructional hierarchy of foundation, basic shape, key actions, and refinements Asana session: Sit This   all   levels   forward   bend   focused   class   will   open   your   legs,   hips   and   back   to   move   progressively   and   safely into   deepening   seated   forward   bends,   hip   openers   and   twists   and   inversions.   Expect   step   by   step   instructions, progressive   sequencing,   the   use   of   props   and   applied   anatomy   to   strengthen   and   safely   unlock   the   potency   of these introverted poses. DAY 3 SEE: Observation, Demonstration & Pose Improvement Strategies A   picture   is   worth   a   thousand   words.   The   ability   to   show   students   what   you   mean   is   crucial.   Many   of   your students   are   visual   learners   and   they   won’t   fully   understand   you   until   they   see   it.   We   will   explore   and   practice   a variety of types of postural demonstrations and pose improvement strategies: How to see and observe students Fine tuning your sight Demonstrating pose shape Demonstrating pose improvement Demonstrating key actions Use of demonstrations in vinyasa classes Use of demonstration for beginners Reading the room: Using demonstration to change the flow or energy in class Asana Session: Extend This   strong   mixed   level   backbend   workshop   will   systematically   strengthen   your   core   and   open   your   shoulders, upper    back    and    hips/legs    for    backbends.    We    will    progress    from    fundamental    backbends    into    Urdhva Dhanurasana   (Upward   Bow/Full   Wheel),   standing   up   to   Tadasana   from   Urdhva   Dhanurasana   and   dropping back   from   Tadasana   to   Urdhva   Dhanurasana.   Expect   step   by   step   teaching,   careful   and   specific   sequencing, work   with   props,   modifications,   options   and   clear   stages   for   all   levels,   and   a   passionate   call   to   engage   your heart. DAY 4 REACH: Conscious Use of Myth and Metaphor We   focus   and   hone   in   on   more   subtle   aspects   of   teaching:   theme,   metaphor   and   the   evocative   power   of   mythic consciousness. We explore: The conscious use of myth and metaphor Class themes Mythic narrative and storytelling Class opening and closing strategies Theme integration strategies Tools to deepen Sadhana Vulnerability and teaching Ethics and boundaries Asana session: Awaken This   session   will   deeply   explore   the   principles   that   empower   you   to   open   your   body/mind/heart   safely   and powerfully,   by   building   opening   and   awareness   in   a   well-rounded,   potent,   full   spectrum   practice   of   asana, pranayama,   and   meditation.   We   will   dive   deeply   into   our   bodies,   minds   and   hearts   to   enjoy   the   bliss   of integrated awareness and ability. DAY 5 BREATHE: Vinyasa Sequencing and Transitions We   study   vinyasa   flow   sequencing   and   teaching   techniques   to   highlight   breath   and   movement,   rhythm   and momentum of continuous practice without sacrificing sound alignment. We explore: Pranayama and effective use of breath as primary support Crafting intelligent, effective and creative vinyasa sequences Weaving form, foundation in precision into the flow Teaching transitions Learning new and healthy biomechanical approaches to vinyasa Pacing and pulse: the dance of holding and flowing Sustainable sequencing Set sequence vinyasa: Why? Beginner strategies Intermediate strategies Considering how to develop advanced sequences Asana session: Flow This    strong    all    levels    vinyasa    workshop    will    build    on    fundamental    vinyasa    poses    and    transitions    (sun salutations),    build    heat,    focus    and    strength    as    we    progress    into    increasingly    complex    and    creative    peak sequences   that   combine   standing   poses,   hip   openers,   arm   balances,   inversions   and   backbends.   Expect   strong continuous   practice,   in   rhythm   with   your   breath,   alignment   combined   with   flow.   Come   ready   to   play   hard   and challenge your practice.
