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!
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.
