Reading Bodies and Giving Adjustments
Limited Capacity seats available

As teachers, it is essential that we refine our ability to observe our students and be equipped to help each individual move to the next level in their practice. The dual art of reading bodies and doing hands-on adjustments is fundamental for teaching yoga. These skills enable us to help our students refine their practices in order to find the freedom that asana practice is all about. Starting the morning and afternoon sessions with a led practice to embody the work, we will move into the practice of hands-on and reading bodies.  Our focus will be on refining our skills to better help our students reach their potential.  In this partner-oriented workshop, we will focus on key poses that are most frequently practiced in classes, including variations, modifications, and when to use props and why.  We will cover how to teach beginners and how to deal with mixed levels of students in classes. This workshop is recommended for teachers who want to go deeper in their practice and understanding. Putting it all together, we will strengthen our ability to see clearly and to adjust our students safely—all with precision and compassion.

What to bring: Block, strap.  Blankets recommended.
Discussion, asana, hands-on partner work.

The Teacher as Leader: Using Your Platform for Interpersonal and Global Change
Limited Capacity seats available

As a teacher, we have a unique opportunity to support our students in a process of deep transformation that includes facilitating embodied experiences that can shift their physical and emotional energy systems. These energetic changes are what empower our students to engage with the world around them in a more integrated and meaningful way.  It is a privilege to facilitate and bear witness to these changes, knowing the impact that it can have on how they show up in the world. Therefore, our words matter as our influence can be far reaching. In order to hold space with integrity, we must continually commit to our own inner work and challenge any belief systems we embody that no longer serve our highest self, and therefore, our highest potential.

Join Seane for a unique conversation and class that will explore what it means to own the call of the teacher/leader. Through asana, discussion, reflection, and meditation, we will learn the various emotional and practical tools necessary in order to heal the personal wounds that can hold us back from embracing our leadership, purpose, and service in the world.

Asana, discussion, reflection, meditation.

Alleviating Aches & Pains with Yoga
Limited Capacity seats available

What is pain? Pain is your body telling you that something is wrong so you can make necessary changes. Pain informs you to modify your environment, change your thoughts and feelings, and revaluate your body mechanics and your nutrition. One of the most powerful aspects of yoga is its ability to alleviate pain, be it physical, mental or emotional. Learn the common reasons behind specific types of pain in the body and how asana, meditation, nutrition and lifestyle can make pain disappear! Come and empower yourself to become your own healer. You will learn specific Purna Yoga techniques to relieve neck, shoulder, hip and knee pain; how to strengthen these joints; and how to prevent future pain.

Bring a strap, a block and one blanket.

Asana and Pranayama
Limited Capacity seats available

What is the relationship between the architecture of asana and the absorption of Prana?  Can they be learned together?
