We all want to be of service to our students, but sometimes confusion and fear prevent us from learning how to do hands-on assists well and we avoid them altogether. 

Touch can be healing when used skillfully, and that's what we'll talk about and practice on this weekend so that you can incorporate hands-on into your teaching in a safe, supportive manner. . This workshop focuses on developing greater skillfulness with hands-on enhancements and adjustments in a variety of shapes, both passive and active.  

It will help you get to know your students, encourage repeat attendance, and enhance your private yoga classes. We’ll cover familiar poses in new ways and unexpected assists as well. You’ll leave with memorable approaches to assessment and support.

AYURVEDA: The HOLISTIC PICTURE
Ottawa, ON
SuMMER SCHOOL EDITION
WEDNESDAYS IN MAY
May 2 - 23
5:30 - 9:30
 

 

Unite yoga and Ayurveda, yoga’s sister science of self-care, routine and diet, to navigate a yoga lifestyle for optimal balance and ease in your mind and body.

Many yogis encounter the preliminary concepts of Ayurveda without much of a roadmap to guide them toward next steps. This workshop will include a philosophical background that will frame practical approaches to bringing Ayurveda into your life. We’ll demystify how to cultivate balance so you can see progress on your path, and you’ll be fascinated by how logical – and yet radical! – much of the advice will be.

This workshop is meant to empower you with a conceptual understanding that will help you on and off the mat and will focus on information, discussion and guidance. Yogis will leave with lovingly designed worksheets to help develop a daily routine, track progress, and suggested resources to further guide them. This workshop is appropriate to both teachers and students, because even if you know your dosha, there will be lots of new information here for you.

This workshop is broken up into four 4 hour modules, and is equivalent to one weekend module in the 300 hour program. This is a required module in the 300 hour program and is also a pre-requisite for the elective Teaching Ayurvedic Yoga module.

If you've done an intro to Ayurveda before - even with Kathryn - consider returning, because this format is going to help you get maximum digestion and utility. We will take time with concepts, practices (including oils), and plan our individual routes.
