Deepening your Yoga Practice: Observation and Looking In
29 September – 5 October 2014
Over these eight days, you will research from the inside as a yoga practitioner and from the outside as an observer, as you deepen your understanding of yoga in practice. In deep practices, you will explore the roots and foundation of yoga through the forms and techniques of Asana, Pranayama and Vinyasa. You will learn how to draw on these to create an intelligent, conscious practice that is grounded in the principles but in sync with your life and your own individual body.
A Yoga Teaching Practice: The Art of a Yoga Class
26 January – 1 February 2015
During this intensive, you will develop and define your voice as a teacher. You will use your own personal experience and self practice to expand your understanding of yoga, establish your teaching style and sharpen your ability to observe and adjust. You will also be introduced to sequence, flow and the arc and artistry of devising a class. In this second week, students will teach classes and prepare an evening session. This will be an opportunity to discuss their areas of personal interest and study with the group.
Intensive Immersion Weekends
Sanskrit and the Yoga Sutras: 7-9 November 2014
Taught by Lucy Crisfield
Far more than a physical practice, yoga is a means of connecting to the spirit by transforming the relationship between the body, energy and mind. Over this weekend, you will discover how yoga philosophy developed in the yoga sutras as well as get a basic understanding of the sounds in sanskrit. This weekend will provide context for moving beyond the perception of yoga as a bodily discipline and instead recognizing its potency as a science and art whose aim is spiritual development and self-realization.
Anatomy Studies for Yoga Asana: 5 – 7 December 2014
Taught by Sally Carmichael
It is by observing your body in practice and paying attention to how you move and breathe in Vinyasa, that your personal practice becomes your teacher. During this weekend, you will examine the anatomy of movement and subtle body anatomy and discover how outer and inner alignment connect and the internal energetic, emotional and mental effects of asana. This weekend will be taught experientially so you can see, feel and explore the mechanics of bones, joints, muscles and connective tissues.
Yoga as Wellness: Private Yoga & Injury Prevention: 27 February – 1 March 2015
During this weekend, we will experience three different perspectives on the body and working with injuries. Students will explore the process of tailoring a practice for an individual with an injury, as well as how to run private yoga sessions. From assessing your clients’ requirements by asking the right questions to adapting the practice while maintaining its essence, you will discover how to modify poses and create a supportive and, healing practice. We will pay particular attention to creating practices suitable for different population groups including women, men, the elderly and people working through injuries.
Yoga for Individuals: 20 – 22 March 2015
Taught by Hermione Armitage and Heidi Feldman
In the modern world students come to yoga with diverse experiences, physical limitations and capabilities as well as mental and emotional challenges. And for each student our goal is to create a practice that is sympathetic, supportive and nurturing to both their body and spirit. During this weekend you will learn how to tailor your teaching to the individual needs of your students be they physical, mental or emotional, chronic or temporary, through experiential work and exploration of our selves.
