There are infinite options for how one might sequence a yoga practice. The conscious order of components within a yoga practice is essential to designing a safe and effective program. This workshop is designed for yoga teachers and practitioners interested in creating yoga practices designed to best meet a set intention while adapting to the specific needs of the practitioner. Practices will include understanding how to build stability, pose preparation/compensation, and designing safe practices. This workshop will also include discussion, modeling, and
practice of observational methods such as, observing movement patterns,
breathing feedback, and non-verbal cues. Additional resources will be provided to participants. Participants are encouraged to bring note-taking materials, a practice mat, and wear comfortable clothing for movement. Yoga Alliance CEUs will be available (10 hours for participation in both days of training).
This class will be led by Dr. Kim Allen, a certified 500-hour teacher and 500-hour yoga therapist through the American Viniyoga Institute. Kim has her doctorate in Health Education and has been teaching yoga since 1996 to a wide range of specialty populations.
