20 Saturdays and Sundays on some weekends between April and October, 2018.
Lunch 1-2 pm.
Body Therapies Yoga Training focuses on rejuvenation through yoga, Ayurveda and somatics. Our programs promote compassion, appreciation and gratitude. And strengthens the relationship with one’s own inner guiding voice, as well as with nature.
What happens in the program?
Here you explore a variety of yoga techniques: asana, pranayama, mudras, etc. In addition, you will become familiar with yoga philosophy's approach to stressing less. In this way your learning is supported with both theory and practice.
It is important that both yoga teacher and student adjust yoga techniques. The poses, breathing exercises, and meditation can all be adjusted to consider individual uniqueness including culture and heritage. The result is more ease and empowerment for the student.
Even though Ayurveda is a system that originates in India, its principles are universal. And some of the practices address rejuvenation; both physical and mental. Applying these principles and practices intelligently increase wellness.
Somatics is a system that offers both education and movement to regain control of your nerves and muscles. Through gentle exercises chronic muscular contractions are addressed. Somatics disproves the belief that aging means aches, pains, and stiffness.
The eight classes are intended to be hands-on experience for you. For the weekend program, the internship occurs during the last half of the program. For the four week intensive the internship takes place after the 20 in class days.
