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

Yoga for Inner Peace
Limited Capacity seats available

What happens when women get together? Something immeasurably powerful and transformative can come from the support of other women. We set down our barriers and dwell in our commonalities, compassion, and understanding. Even though this is only a half of day, the goal is to leave you feeling like you have just been on a weeklong women’s retreat. In her 20 years of teaching women's retreats, Saidman Yee has come to understand that a lot of times we are struggling with similar issues and thinking that we are alone. Emotional needs of a woman are different from those of a man. We will target common areas where tension, trauma, and secrets can be buried with the intension of unleashing joy. We will use asana, pranayama, meditation, journaling and dialogue to dig into areas that keep us stuck. Why and where are we stuck? What are we afraid of? Are we living our potential? Are we using our voices to speak our truth? Do we understand our importance and validity? We will experiment with practices that address issues such as forgiveness and confidence. We will explore different tools that unlock bindings in the body, breath, and brain that keep you from realizing that you are enough.

Strong + Stable + Safe Shoulders
Limited Capacity seats available

The highly mobile and beautifully intricate nature of the shoulder girdle makes it one of the most vulnerable parts of your body—especially for flow or vinyasa yogis. The nuances of the shoulder girdle also make giving accurate, scientifically rationale cues very challenging for teachers to provide. Unfortunately, this combination of challenges leads to an excessive number of injuries and long-term wear and tear. Until now. This intensive will demystify the anatomy of your shoulders, give you a comprehensive rationale for using your shoulders in every category of yoga posture, and educate you about the common sources of shoulder injuries in yoga. This intensive will also dispel some of the common misunderstandings about how the shoulders function in yoga postures. Lastly, you’ll learn a comprehensive practice for keeping your shoulders strong, stable and balanced—setting you up for a lifetime of more efficient, safe yoga.
