Teacher Immersion

November 22-24, 2019

Add more value to your teaching and go above and beyond your initial training!

All of the information that you covered in your 200hr YTT where you felt you only scratched the surface, the Teacher Immersion now gives you the opportunity to expand your knowledge and dive a little deeper into those topics that we didn't have enough time for in the first round.

Limited to 12 people so that you get the value and attention you deserve!

What you will learn:

  • Become comfortable in your assessment skills as we take a more in-depth look at the nervous system, anatomy, biomechanics and how it relates to yoga asanas and movement.  Each day will be spent learning how to effectively observe movement and function of the joints of individual bodies.

  • The power of language.  Using cues that are useful and informative, not as fillers and fluff.

  • The power and effects of breath and how to safely incorporate various breathing techniques into your classes.

  • What trauma-informed teaching really means and how to be sensitive to everyone's story.

  • How to help your students understand the importance of loving their bodies and practicing with a body-positive approach.

  • How to incorporate load-bearing movement into your yoga classes to promote a sustainability and strength for your students.

9:00am - 6:00pm



Day 1

Nervous System

Cellular Mechanics

Tissue Adaptation

The Vagus Nerve

The Science of Breathing

Emotional Intelligence

  • Understand the science behind "stretching".  Should we stretch?  What does it mean to stretch?  What does it mean to communicate with your nervous system?  Does it matter?

  • We talk about and explore how and if yoga can change the behavior of cells in our body, discussing mechanical changes that can be made on a microscopic level.

  • Apply the science of the nervous system, anatomy and biomechanics to yoga asanas. How important are the transitions?  How can you inject movement into your flows that will help your students move better and feel better off of their mats?  Does the language you're using make sense?

  • Learn the complexities of the vagus nerve and how it relates to our connection to movement and function - both mechanically and emotionally.

  • Explore the biomechanics of breath through the principles of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS).

  • Learn about diet culture and how to encourage your students/clients to take a more mindful/intuitive approach to food. Move and learn how to celebrate and find joy in Yoga & Diverse Movement without the focus being on weight-loss and/or changing the body & encourage your clients/students to do the same.  Help students/clients to work toward bodily acceptance.  Learn about the importance of rest and relaxation, and encourage your clients/students to do the same.  Learn the difference between “body image,” “body positivity,” and the “health at every size Movement.”

Day 2

Strength & Sustainability

  • This day is spent in a facility with access to weights and strength training equipment

  • Learn how to safely and intelligently access strength building movements within the body using resistance.  Explore progressive load and understand how to incorporate these principles into your classes.  Understand what it is to strengthen the joints and empower your students with the same knowledge.  How important is strengthening?  Who is strength-building for?  How does it apply to yoga and your yoga classes?

Day 3

Making Sense of it all

  • Understanding the significance of bone stacking, alignment and their cues, what constitutes a safe practice for the upper body and spine

  • Understand the importance of movement variability of the trunk.  What is the "core" exactly?  How do we "engage" it?  How do you communicate that to your students?

  • Explore the endless possibilities regarding foot placement, pelvic placement and their relationship to yoga asanas.

  • Come to understand how fascial lines and lines of tension can change asanas and how you can offer an accessible practice to your students after feeling it in your own body.
