300-hour YTT Practicum Session: Intro Series Specific

300-HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING PRACTICUM

with Beth Award

An intro series is a great way to break down the basics of yoga and help cultivate a person’s confidence to attend public classes or to simply create a home practice. This is your opportunity to practice doing just that! As preparation for this practicum, create a basic outline of a 6-week “Intro to Yoga” series. Come prepared to teach one 60-minute “Intro to Yoga” class to the group. This workshop is open to yoga teachers only, and is part of our 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training program.

Ocean & Shore: Molokai 2019

YOGA & MEDITATION RETREAT

with Denise Benitez and Karen Sprute-Francovich

Yoga, meditation, nourishing meals, private grounds, stunning sunsets, community, exploring, and so much more — all while enjoying the profound beauty and deep relaxation that only Mother Molokai can offer.

Our current culture is filled with yang (active, masculine, striving) and does not tend to value round, moist, deep reserves and sustenance such as those that are found in Hawaii, and especially on Mother Molokai. Spend a week practicing and adoring the things that are often neglected in our culture. Instead of sharp, bright, fast, surface, we will bring to life those energies that are soft and low, slow and deep; the energies that heal and promote what yogis call soma, ease of being. This week will be an antidote to all the noise and speed of the over-culture and a time to rest deeply and replenish your inner stores of wellness and optimism.

How to Design & Teach an Intro to Yoga Series

2-DAY WORKSHOP

with Beth Award

An intro series is a great way to break down the basics of yoga and help cultivate a person’s confidence to attend public classes or to simply create a home practice. As teachers, we have the opportunity to impart the basics of yoga in a careful, sequential way so that a person’s ongoing yoga practice—of any style—is informed and enhanced.

So how would one break down the basics of this vast body of practice in 6 weeks and inspire and inform someone who may have never stepped foot inside a yoga studio?? This interactive workshop aims to spark your creativity for teaching an intro series.

Motion, Health, & Hormones: Optimizing Home Yoga and Walking Programs

Motion, Health, & Hormones: Optimizing Home Yoga and Walking Programs

WORKSHOP

with special guest Steve Thompson

Vitality is associated with movement. As we “age,” we experience accumulating losses of small amounts of motion, particularly at the hips, ribs, and shoulders, due to injuries and less than optimal posture. Full-range leg and arm movements are essential for driving and balancing fluids and hormones and sustaining organ health. As our movement becomes restricted, we become more susceptible to gaining weight, losing energy, and contracting diseases.
