The Path :: Winter Series

Begins Tuesday, November 13th  OR Thursday, November 15th | 6-7:30pm

The Path is a nourishing blend of yoga, connection and self-discovery.  It's not just a yoga class; it's a journey taken with like minded women that creates a bond of support that we crave & need. This connection is fundamental to thrive in our human-ness as moms, friends, partners, entrepreneurs, wives and sisters... ad infinitum. 

The Path :: Details

The Path is a nourishing blend of yoga, connection and self-discovery.
Yoga: We move through an all levels practice that is safe both physically and emotionally. It clears the path for introspection, grounding, healing, awareness and intention. It is both fluid and still and the focus is not only on the movement but how we feel within that movement.
Connection: The Path is a weekly ritual of showing up for yourself. It’s not only about connecting with yourself but also with other like- minded women that have been craving authentic interaction as well as truthful conversation. We carve out space for ourselves each week. We show up again and again; even in the chaos, even when we don’t want to. We do this not just for ourselves but each other. Your pain is our pain. Your joy is our joy. Your healing is our healing. When we practice courage, bravery and vulnerability, it gives others permission to do the same. We do it together.

Self Discovery:Our lives are better when our insides match our outsides. Yoga, Connection, Journaling, Breathing and Meditation lead us toward a path of peace, dignity and grace; not only for ourselves but for our immediate world around us and beyond.

Working from the “yinside” out, we will explore the main postures of yin yoga, the benefits of this style of practice, and basic anatomy necessary to understand how different bodies create different shapes. You'll be introduced to Paul Grilley's "Functional Approach to Yoga" and how it works with the teachings of yin.

This training is open to both current and aspiring yoga teachers, as well as enthusiastic students who wish to spend the weekend immersed in all things Yin. You’ll leave this weekend with the foundation and ability to guide yourself and your students safely and effectively into a wide variety of yin poses.

This course also qualifies for 15 hours of CE credit with Yoga Alliance for registered yoga teachers.

We’ll discuss:
· The history and philosophy of yin yoga
· The main poses of yin yoga
· What is connective tissue and fascia
· What areas of the body each pose intends to target
· Modifications and prop use for each pose
· Counterposes and Rebound
· Compression vs Tension
· Discussion of anatomy and skeletal variation - The Functional Approach to Yoga
· How to “read and understand” varying body types/limitations in this practice as a teacher
· Understanding the physical, energetic and mental benefits of the practice
· Discussion of meridians and mindfulness meditation
· How to build a class (sequencing, timing, music, props, intention, etc.)
AND - you'll get actual practice time teaching each other what you've just learned!

Please bring either Bernie Clark's book - The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga or Sarah Powers book - Insight Yoga for reference.
