Beyond teaching on the mat, yoga has infinite applications for making life better for people in schools, healing places, work places. Our first weekend is full of workshops on health-giving skills and sciences; natural, holistic, and restorative healing practices, and alternate wisdom paths for wellbeing.
We go deeper into the philosophy of yoga with a study of some of yoga's ancient texts (Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Yoga Sutras, Raja Yoga), providing useful tools to access, understand, and use the wisdom of the ancient yogis in your daily lives. The wisdom of yoga is universal, so we will also explore the same themes through some of the other major philosophies of the world (Buddhism, Stoicism, Taoism, Science).
As yoga's popularity has soared, so have injuries related to unsafe practice and bad information. Understanding how the body really works will revolutionize your personal practice, and your teaching competence.
Our second weekend studying Anatomy will look deeper into how we use our knowledge of the body to teach the safest possible practice to the widest group of people, while still keeping your classes challenging and rewarding for all.
