Friday, November 13 to Sunday, November 15, 2020
This training is intended for yoga teachers, teachers in training or dedicated students who want to learn more about the process of putting together a well-balanced practice.
In this course, we will be breaking down individual postures to deepen your understanding and prepare you to create a yoga sequence that is both healing and strengthening.
We will study poses on a scale from simple to more complex movements, and discuss how to use that to build a yoga class that opens up the body in a systematic way. We will explore which asanas are most important for the modern body’s common ailments and how to set our students up for success in more complex poses.
This course will take you outside of ‘peak posture’ sequencing and instead educate you on how to create a more comprehensive, well rounded yoga practice. You will learn how to move beyond a rigid class structure and how to be more intuitive with your sequencing so you can tune in to the needs of the room.
This weekend will also teach you how to weave in mobility work, more cardiovascular opportunities and body weight exercises to create a more complete movement practice for your students. We will also cover how to integrate music and props into your class in a way that is supportive and does not disrupt the flow.
- Improve and deepen your understanding of yoga asanas.
- Learn effective preparatory exercises to set students up for success in more complex asanas.
- Move beyond rigid sequences and learn how to adapt your classes to who is in the room.

About Your Teacher
I teach an athletic style of yoga that will challenge you to meet your edge with grace and ease. I like to teach a mix of traditional asana with strength and mobility exercises borrowed from other modalities. I think the greatest gift I can offer my students is how to meet challenging moments with softness, how to tune inwards for guidance, and to feel more at home in their bodies. For me, yoga is about realizing that so much of our struggle in life comes from our reactivity and resistance to things as they are. My classes will encourage you to breathe into what you are feeling without judgement, without reacting, and to simply witness your experience without trying to change it.
When it came to thinking about why we work out, my friend used to always say, ‘what are you training for?’ Most of us aren’t training for any Olympic event, what most of us are training for is life. We are doing yoga so we can get out of bed in the morning and feel good in our bodies. We want to be able to run with our kids, enjoy a hike with friends, and feel we can call upon our bodies to do whatever activity that we want. We are training (or doing yoga) so our bodies don’t hold us back from living the life we want. <read more>
