This enrollment runs from Fri Jan 26, 2018 - Sun Jan 28, 2018
Living and being with our bodies is a tall order. Sitting back and witnessing our experience takes time and practice. Today's body is hurried, overworked, under exercised, stressed and depleted. When exercise does occur, it is quick, vigorous and sweat producing. We each have an opportunity to develop a relationship with our body through movement, breath and meditation that is unique. This Gentle Yoga Teacher Training shows us another way to connect with ourselves, through the subtle and the quiet. We do this by learning to listen, slowing down and paying attention. Gentle yoga is a the bridge between moving slowly and staying still. This program will look at various ways to teach Gentle Yoga to a wide variety of populations. We will cover practices for more able-bodied students, chair practices and floor practices of exploration. Pranayama and meditation will also be discussed.

Teaching Restorative Yoga with Shelbi Miles & Jacci Gruninger Next held on Fri, Oct 5, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm
This enrollment runs from Fri Oct 5, 2018 - Sun Oct 7, 2018
Restorative yoga is a gentle inward form of yoga that invites participants to move towards greater balance, control and participation in their life. The participant’s body is placed in yoga postures that are supported with props. The mind is invited to slow down with the use of pranayama, visualization and mantra allowing the individual to turn inside. A restorative practice is a complement to any yoga practice or other form of exercise and perfect for almost any practitioner looking to experience a deeper state of relaxation and healing than Savasana or sleep. It is also a perfect practice for those recovering from injury or illness or anyone who experiences stress on a daily basis.

In this weekend restorative yoga training created from the Tantric Hatha Yoga Teachings, the work of Herbert Benson and Jon Kabat Zinn, participants will gain practical, hands-on experience and skills to work with a wide range of populations. The program will include posture practice, pranayama, meditation, mantra, mudra, visualization, and use of props to create a safe/comfortable/healing environment. Participants will leave the training confident in their ability to understand the philosophy and science behind restorative yoga as well as self-assured in their aptitude to lead their students through a complete restorative yoga practice.
