From the Ground Up: Standing Pose Lab for Teachers and Serious Students AVAILABLE

Limited Capacity seats available

Standing poses are some of the more complex yet beneficial poses for all level students. They are the building blocks from which all other groups of poses such as backbends, inversions, twists, hip openers, and forward bends can be built upon. Simply put, standing poses are the heart of a yoga practice. Paramount to a healthy, strong asana practice, they are also basic tools for teaching safe and informative classes. In this workshop, we will examine these poses "from the ground up" so that we can teach them effectively and safely. We will learn how students get into trouble when these poses are practiced incorrectly. A yoga teacher's skill lies largely in the ability to see the alignment and energy flow in the bodies and then make corrections and adjustments. We'll focus on the science of "looking," the art of "seeing," and the means to improve the pose, including physical adjustment. We will cover a range of standing poses and as tools for all other poses.

This is a partner-oriented workshop.

Please bring a block and a strap. 

Mostly asana, some discussion.
