Living Your Yoga in Iceland

What we do "on the mat" is given perspective by how we live our lives off the mat. In this workshop we will use short discussion from the Yoga Sutra, active asana practice, as well as Restorative yoga, pranayama and meditation to create a juicy and livable practice to take home.

The first class each day will focus on "active practice", moving, strengthening, and working with awareness. Included will be such poses as standing poses and backbends.

After a short break, we will return to the mat for a "quiet" practice of meditation, pranayama and Restorative yoga. This well-rounded practice will serve to center and inspire us as we open our hearts to living well in the world.

Relax and Renew® Level 1 in London

We work very hard in our lives, and while we may sleep, we rarely take time to rest. Restorative Yoga poses help us learn to relax and rest deeply and completely. During deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the body are benefited, and a few of the measurable results of relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure and the improvement of immune function, as well as improvement in digestion, fertility, elimination, and the reduction of muscle tension and generalized fatigue.
 
In this 30-hour Level 1 workshop, you will learn the art and skill of teaching Restorative Yoga. All aspects of the subject will be covered, including the physiology of relaxation, the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of Restorative Yoga, special poses for menstruation, pregnancy and menopause, and how to sequence and teach a class in Restorative Yoga. At this time, more than 900 teachers have been trained in Restorative Yoga in the United States, Japan, Canada and England.

Moving Toward the Center: Pranayama Intensive in London

But our special focus will be on pranayama, the practice that uses the breath as a vehicle to carry us “toward our center” in a subtle and powerful way.

Both our Active and Restorative poses will therefore be selected specifically to open us to our breathing. While it is not well-known, in traditional yoga training pranayama practice was much more important than asana practice. We will approach the topic first from breathing awareness techniques that are suitable for all levels of students, and then move into traditional pranayama practice. Classic yoga teachings state that pranayama is the gateway to meditation.

In addition to the classical techniques of practice, we will explore ourselves through discussion, short writing assignments, and the cultivation of an introspective attitude.

This intensive is for you if:

  • You regularly practice pranayama.
  • You do not presently practice pranayama regularly but really want to.
  • You are curious about the effects of the regular practice of pranayama.
  • You want to understand better the relationship of the effects of asana on pranayama practice.

Experiential Anatomy in London

Please register directly with YogaCampus beginning September 2016.

Deeply understanding the anatomy and movement principles of the body is an invaluable tool for yoga teachers and serious students. Not only does it help your teaching, it also enriches your own practice.

In this workshop we will practice Active and Quiet poses. But our work will be focused around learning specific anatomy by first feeling it in our bodies and seeing it in other bodies. Often participants in this workshop realize they already know a lot about anatomy because they feel it bodily rather than have the ability to verbalize it. The important next step is that we we will uncover together he movement principles (kinesiology) and be able to name the anatomical parts that are moving. It really doesn't help, for example, to know where the biceps muscle is if you don't understand how it works in various ways and with various other muscles. Our practice is about the moving, NOT static body.

Not only will we stretch the hamstrings, for example, but we will also learn exactly where they attach and what exactly it is they do in the body besides make forward bends challenging.

The required text will be Judith’s book, Yogabody: Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Asana, which will be available for sale at the workshop.

Experiential Anatomy in Vancouver, BC

Please register directly with the studio.

Deeply understanding the anatomy and movement principles of the body is an invaluable tool for yoga teachers and serious students. Not only does it help your teaching, it also enriches your own practice.

In this workshop we will practice both Active and Quiet poses. Our work will focus on learning specific anatomy by first feeling it in our bodies and then seeing it in others. Often participants in this workshop realize they already know much about anatomy because of body awareness gained through practice, yet haven’t learned the corresponding anatomical terms and theory.

Together, we we will uncover and explore movement principles (kinesiology) and their applications, and name the anatomical parts that are moving. It really doesn’t help, for example, to know where the biceps muscle is if you don’t understand how it works in various ways and with various other muscles. Our practice is about the moving, NOT the static, body.

Not only will we stretch the hamstrings, for example, but we will also learn exactly where they attach and what exactly it is they do in the body besides make forward bends challenging.

This intensive pulls from the vast depth and breadth of Judith’s knowledge and expertise gained through 40+ years as a yoga teacher and physiotherapist. She has worked with tens of thousands of students, and thus can offer a well of experience comparable to none. She truly is an incredible resource for anyone wanting to better understand anatomy and biomechanics as it applies to yoga asana.

Required text: Yogabody: Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Asana by Judith Hanson Lasater. Please read at least the first chapter prior to the workshop.

Embodying Empathy: Active and Restorative Practice in London

  • Yogacampus Training Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Understanding and practicing empathy for yourself and others is probably the most important skill we can have as yoga practitioners, family members, and world citizens.Empathy connects us to ourselves, to others and to the world at large, and can shape our conversations, interactions and all our relationships.

To embody empathy is to embody the yamas and nyamas, to begin to “be” yoga instead of just “doing” yoga.

But how do we actually make empathy our default response to each situation, whether that situation is an asana or a conversation with a loved one?

How can we use our yoga practice both to create and express this empathetic approach to life?

Learning to do this is a process which requires deep self-inquiry and the willingness to be a bit fearless and vulnerable with ourselves. The rewards, however, are enormous.

Through discussion, some written work, and active and restorative asana practice, we will explore this topic together.

Yoga for Anxiety, Anger & Depression

Our yoga practice is the key to becoming “who we are” and not just “something we do”. Practicing not only shapes our life, it informs our teaching on the most fundamental levels.

Many people in our culture suffer from anxiety, anger and/or depression. This training will combine the Western theories about these conditions with a brief introduction to what Ayurveda (the Indian science of medicine) teaches about them as well. We will practice the asanas and the pranayamas that can be of huge benefit.

We will begin each day with a practice intention and a short interactive discussion. The first session every day will focus on the practice of Active Poses, on how to sequence them effectively for Anxiety, Anger and Depression, as well as how to develop a series of poses that gradually take you deeper into the practice.

The afternoon sessions will focus on Quiet Practice, including Restorative yoga, pranayama and meditation. The afternoon practice will help us learn just how to use our practices to elicit stillness and contentment within ourselves and how to help others.

Throughout both practice sessions, Judith will focus on some of her current interests in such topics as: what it means to practice from the Feminine (whether you are male or female), how to “be” and not just “do”, and the absolute necessity that we learn to practice from a place of vulnerability and surrender even in the most active poses.
