The day will run from 10.30am-1.30pm and 2.30pm- 5.30pm. Teaching yoga can often be just as challenging as it is rewarding.

We’ll cover a variety of different topics with the aim of deepening your own yoga practice and refining and empowering your teaching so that it is inclusive and informed by the most up to date research on movement. With a mixture of discussion, lecture, group work and asana practice we will explore many areas: Dispelling yoga myths and becoming clear about the meaning behind what we say in class by looking at some of the latest scientific research on biomechanics and health Using anatomical knowledge to refine the language that we use as teachers Making yoga inclusive by focusing on accurate cueing instead of precise cueing Discussing hot topics such as locking joints, squaring the hips in twists, Shoulder Impingement and the use of the Glutes in backbends Exploring what limits us in certain asana, what are the stretch reflexes and how to apply a knowledge of fascia to the asana practice Exploring the principals of flexibility verses mobility Discussing why muscles tighten and the best way to approach this. The workshop will include dedicated practices so ensure that the topics that are explored are integrated This workshop counts towards CPD requirements for Yoga Alliance members. After originally training to become a doctor, Andrew moved away from western medicine to pursue a career as a yoga teacher, massage therapist and anatomy teacher. Andrew has been practising yoga and meditation for over 15 years and teaching strong, grounding and inclusive classes since 2009.

I am a certified Forrest Yoga teacher, Forrest Yoga Guardian-in-training and Senior Yoga Alliance teacher. Currently, I am based in Dundee and am the co-founder and principal teacher of Heart Space Yoga & Bodyworks. You can find my weekly classes there. I began yoga in 2007 following surgical procedures on both legs and used Yoga for my rehabilitation. I have completed over 1,000 hours of training with Forrest Yoga Certification Programmes along with over 1,000 hours of Ashtanga and Vinyasa training.

You can follow along with my yoga practice on my Instagram where I post daily updates, tips, and revelations that I have along the way. For the last two years, I have spoken publicly and online through BBC The Social on LGBT issues, Male Mental Health, and the issues around suicide. This is something I am passionate about being a voice for and the book, Kilted Yoga, has opened the doors for me to speak to people about how a yoga practice can help you with mental health struggles but also about how to get fierce about what you are passionate about, even if that is your own healing. www.finlay-wilson.com £200

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.

Using Anatomy to Refine & Empower Your Practice & Teaching with Dr Yogi Saturday 21 March 2020, 10:30-17:30 For yoga teachers, yoga teacher trainees or yoga practitioners with at least a one year consistent practice. The day will run from 10.30am- 1.30pm and 2.30pm-5.30pm. Teaching yoga can often be just as challenging as it is rewarding. With busy classes, high turnover and lots of students who are new to yoga coming to class it can be easy for yoga teachers to feel isolated and overwhelmed, often not knowing where to turn to for support with the many questions we have. This daylong workshop offers a space to ask the questions that you never seem to get the opportunity to ask. We’ll cover a variety of different topics with the aim of deepening your own yoga practice and refining and empowering your teaching so that it is inclusive and informed by the most up to date research on movement. With a mixture of discussion, lecture, group work and asana practice we will explore many areas: Dispelling yoga myths and becoming clear about the meaning behind what we say in class by looking at some of the latest scientific research on biomechanics and health Using anatomical knowledge to refine the language that we use as teachers Making yoga inclusive by focusing on accurate cueing instead of precise cueing Discussing hot topics such as locking joints, squaring the hips in twists, Shoulder Impingement and the use of the Glutes in backbends Exploring what limits us in certain asana, what are the stretch reflexes and how to apply a knowledge of fascia to the asana practice Exploring the principals of flexibility verses mobility Discussing why muscles tighten and the best way to approach this. The workshop will include dedicated practices so ensure that the topics that are explored are integrated This workshop counts towards CPD requirements for Yoga Alliance members. After originally training to become a doctor, Andrew moved away from western medicine to pursue a career as a yoga teacher, massage therapist and anatomy teacher.
