Lead with Your Words: Perfecting Your Yoga Cues
Mar 16, 2024 - Mar 17, 2024

Learn to use your voice in service of your students. In this workshop, open to teachers of any movement style and all levels of experience, you’ll discover the secrets of confident cueing and find new ways to refine your language and your nonverbal communication in class.

This workshop includes a preassignment to complete before we meet, so please budget at least five hours to prepare your homework in the weeks before the workshop.

In our in-person sessions, we will:

+ Explore the various ways we can talk students into shapes and discuss when to use each
+ Find a good balance between direct and metaphorical speech
+ Discuss the ins and outs of good grammar in a yoga class setting (no sentence diagramming, though!)
+ Recognize that less is often more in yoga classes and test ways to grow comfortable saying even less in class
+ Investigate when and how to offer nonverbal cueing
+ Build your confidence in your speaking abilities
+ Give you a warm, supportive environment in which to practice and refine your new cuing skills

After we meet in person, you'll complete a postassignment for Sage's review and have some back-and-forth mentorship; budget four hours for this work.

We meet Saturday, 10 a.m.–1 p.m. and 2–5 p.m., and again Sunday, 10 a.m.–1 p.m. (There is no Sunday afternoon session, freeing you to travel.)

If you are tracking CEUs for Yoga Alliance, you can claim 18 after completing the postassignment.

Teaching Yoga to Athletes: A Five-Day Teachers' Intensive
Jul 8, 2024 - Jul 12, 2024

As more and more athletes credit yoga with taking their performance to the next level, the field of yoga for athletes is growing in exciting directions. Specializing in yoga for athletes allows you to share yoga's benefits with a new, receptive population, and to help your students better. Studio owner Sage Rountree, a pioneer in the field, has multifaceted experience as a coach, athlete, and teacher working with endurance-sports athletes and collegiate teams.

Sage’s well-loved five-day intensive on yoga for sports training is designed for yoga teachers interested in working with athletes of all sports; it will also be useful for coaches, PE teachers, and personal trainers. At heart, this is a program that attunes you to working with special populations of every kind. Even if you are not intending to cater to athletes, you will come away with finely honed teaching skills and a sense of excitement about helping your students.

In lecture, group discussion, led classes, and practice teaching, we will:

+ discuss the needs, abilities, and limitations that athletes bring to a yoga practice
+ survey exercise physiology relevant to yoga asana practice
+ investigate ways to modify classes for athletes of various sports and levels of experience
+ design sequences appropriate for specific needs and points in the training cycle
+ explore the pedagogy and business of working with athletes

Participants will gain a new awareness of the parallels between yoga and sports training and will leave feeling empowered to teach yoga to athletes in studio, gym, team, or one-on-one settings.

You'll receive the course's required readings as part of your tuition. The workshop confers 35 CEUs for Yoga Alliance.

Our gratitude and reparatory discounts take 25 percent off the full price for those who identify as Black, Indigenous, and Non-White. Write us for details:
