Tired of the same old yoga sequences?
Are you starting to feel your body getting strong in one direction from repetitive movement, but weak in other planes from that same repetitive movement?
Meet functional yoga: intelligent sequencing with a practical
application. Put aside everything you know about traditional asana
come learn to move your body the way it was designed to move - in
all the planes and in different ways each time.
Kate Stone and Nathania Stambouli will teach you how to create dynamic yoga sequences that will get bodies moving better than ever and peak to advanced poses safely, all while juicing up your creative sides.
Whether you are looking to build a home practice, better understand your own mechanics, or you are a certified teacher looking to valuably give your students an innovative movement class, this weekend will give you the skills to incorporate other movement modalities into your yoga practice so you can build sequences that make you feel READY for where you’re headed.
This 10-hour training includes anatomy, rolling around on the
floor, sequencing rubrics, two full practices, and fun.
A sampling of topics to be covered:
How things are connected
Anatomical principles that show up in yoga/that we want to train
Effective cuing for feeling, not pose aesthetics
What parts do we need to prepare for what pose?
What other movement modalities can we borrow from that may be more effective?
How to build and teach ladder flows
Teaching progressions; breaking down peak sequences & poses into their parts
Intelligent warm-ups & cool-downs
The business of teaching
