Energetic Alignment with Janet Stone

Are you looking to find inspiration and grace in your teaching or practice? Are you seeking a deeper understanding of alignment within the flow? This training will support an intuitive and playful approach to alignment and class sequencing, that helps you tap into your own experiences and use them in your practice and teaching.

In this immersion, you will:
Learn to create a steady foundation from which to build simple and complex postures.
Explore the internal experiences that shape alignment from the inside to be expressed outwardly, though the 8 limbs of yoga, deities and stories.
Experience how to sequence (classes or your own practice) with knowledge of form, creativity, fun, and alignment.
Connect with yogic principles such as ahimsa (non-harming) and svadhyaya (self-knowledge) as foundations for alignment.
Open to certified teachers, those in teacher training and students interested in deepening their personal practice*
*15 hours of Yoga Alliance continuing education credit, including some take home exercises.

These workshops are open to anyone wanting to understand and have direct experience of the deeper and transformational practices of yoga. These classes can be taken as part of the Wanderlust 300 Hr training, or simply to support and enhance your personal practice.

Janet Stone’s studentship began at 17 under the meditation teachings of Prem Rawat. His reverence for simplicity and finding joy in the rise and fall of life live on in her practice and teaching today. In 1996, she traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, and became dedicated to the path of yoga. Janet blends the alchemy of her own practice with decades of studentship. She aspires not to teach but to allow the practice to emanate from her, letting awareness blend with movement and breath. Based in Bali and San Francisco, she leads immersions, retreats, workshops and more. For more information: janetstoneyoga.com

Inquire Within // Tools for Tuning your Asana and Navigating Life with Ganga White and Tracey Rich

In every aspect of Yoga, inquiry is key. Learning to feel and discern the effects of postures and practices is essential to tuning and balancing your unique psychophysical being. Finding how to adjust the practices to yourself instead of fitting yourself into a practice is liberating.

There are many dimensions and polarities to be aware of that inform your practice: Poses as Tools not Goals. Practicing for Wellbeing vs Posturing and Posing. Articulation in Asana. Your Life is Your Meditation. Yoga Beyond Belief.

Join us for a 3 day journey through the physical and into the mystic with asana, pranayama and meditation. This workshop is designed to make you see, feel, think as you navigate your life and inquire within.

These workshops are open to anyone wanting to understand and have direct experience of the deeper and transformational practices of yoga. These classes can be taken as part of the Wanderlust 300 Hr training, or simply to support and enhance your personal practice.

This five-day, 25 hr, immersion is open to teachers and serious students alike. It is designed to align the body, attune the mind and inspire the heart.

Created in the spirit of a Local Retreat, each day will include Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Philosophy, Chanting, Sangha (community) and the heart expanding practice of Svadhyaya (self-reflection). Each night offers the comfort of your own bed. Aimed at gaining direct experience and self-knowledge, our intimate group will journey through a progressive exploration of posture, attention and integration.  Receive real time and energy from Clio in order to more completely deepen your practice.  Together, move through the  physical in order to uplift the mental and ignite the spiritual. 

Daily practices of Big Poses with Mad Props - will encourage experimentation in Advanced Asana with assists of Iyengar inspired support: chairs, straps, blocks, blankets and bolsters. Philosophical study will include a deeper dive into the classic texts of Patanajali's Yoga Sutra & The Bhagavad Gita to synthesize the Wisdom Teachings with real life. 

In this soul-nurturing retreat setting, our 5 Day Immersion will give students an opportunity to experience intimacy of personal attention, the connection to community and themselves. Aligned to Enlighten is an extended workshop in the form of an Urban Ashram.  It is offered with encouragement, support, tons of humor and heart for students to deepen across all disciplines of practice and cultivate ease and joy in all areas of life.

Trauma-Informed Cultural Competency Training with Freidel Kushman + Miarco McMillian

The I Am Wellbeing Center (IAMWC) is facilitating a training program tailored to Yoga teachers who are seeking to share the 8 limbs of Yoga within underserved populations.

Generally, underserved populations experience a life informed by, among various factors, intergenerational and historical trauma, cultural conflict & acculturation, structural oppression, and incarceration. These factors have tended to manifest in chronic stress and dis-ease, post- traumatic stress, mental illness, and short-term or chronic homelessness.

Participants of IAWMC’s Trauma-Informed Cultural Competency training will engage in an examination of key elements engendering wellness disparities. Participants will further develop their understanding of best practices for facilitating Yoga curriculums in underserved populations.

Join IAMWC for a look into:
Trauma & PTSD // Theory & Physiology, “Safe Touch” & “Safe Teaching” Protocols, Trauma Healing Theory, and Resources for Trauma Healing
Cultural Competency Cultural Humility // Internalized Oppression, and Societal Privilege, Power, & Dharma
A Lifestyle of Seva
Accessible Yoga

The IAMWC designs trauma-informed therapeutic and accessible Yoga programs for the chronically homeless, veteran, and reentry populations of Los Angeles County, with an emphasis on inclusion, diversity, equal access, empowerment, and self-sufficiency. In particular, IAMWC focuses upon making these practices accessible to persons of all abilities, body types, and conditions. Generally, the individuals we serve suffer from untreated injuries, chronic dis- ease, mental illness, trauma, general malaise and other symptoms associated with long-term impoverishment, homelessness, or disenfranchisement.

Traveling From The Outside In with Joan Hyman

Join Joan Hyman as she leads you on a journey to deepen your own personal practice as well as the students you teach.

Each day will start with a two hour advanced asana practice, each day will end with pranayama and meditation. 

Specific Topics Include:
Hands on Adjustments and the Art of looking at bodies 
A great yoga teacher is able to read bodies and understand what adjustments and instructions to give so student can move into better alignment from within.  We will look at different types of bodies in the poses and learn how to read what adjustment that student may need.  Learn the skill of hands on adjustments by grounding your students first and teaching them how to access these poses on their own eventually. Adjust with confidence in a safe and effective manner so your students will leave with an understanding of how yoga works on their bodies and feel transformed! 

 Advanced Asana 
Learn what makes up an advanced practitioner and how to make advanced postures accessible.  This will include a discussion of yoga classes in the western world today, what an advanced practice may look like.  What elements create an advance practice and which poses are considered advanced?  This will also include a discussion on the higher limbs of yoga and the importance of viveka to discern which practice is right for you! 

 The Art of Sequencing a vinyasa flow class – Traveling from the outside in.  
Learn how to sequence from an anatomical place and move your students from their outer edges to the inner body leaving your students feeling blissful and bright.  Sequencing is a skill that can educates students on how their bodies work and how to access their pranic body so they leave feeling transformed!  We will discuss anatomy, subtle body, and how to add the elements of philosophy into your classes! 

Understanding how to work with injuries  
Understanding injuries is a crucial part of being a yoga teacher these days. Most people that come to yoga usually have some type of injury they are working with. We will review common injuries and the anatomy involved with those injuries to help to build a healthy sequence that strengthens surrounding muscle groups around the injured area. Learn important questions and techniques to ask your students to help them approach their injuries with more awareness and mindfulness. 

 Therapeutics (3 hours) 
In our society today most of us live in an adrenalized state finding it is very hard to slow down and relax. Because of this, stress accumulates and disease begins to form. Simple modalities such as restorative yoga, breath awareness, and meditation can help alleviate stress and create a more peaceful balanced environment keeping your health at an optimal level and preventing future disease. We will explore different types of chronic illness and traumatic situations and use restorative sequences to help restore the body and mind to more healing place. 

 Finding your Authentic Voice and Self Care (2 hours)
As a healer we are giving energy out continually. We need to keep one eye on our clients and most importantly the other eye within, so we are practicing self- care all the time. In this workshop we will discuss what Self Care is and how to continually apply it to your life so you can build a sustainable career and live in abundance.

These workshops are open to anyone wanting to understand and have direct experience of the deeper and transformational practices of yoga. These classes can be taken as part of the Wanderlust 300 Hr training, or simply to support and enhance your personal practice.
