Let’s Talk Yin | PRACTICE: Benefits of Yin Yoga + Why we ALL need it!

April 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
ONLINE CLASS
$10

Join me for this 1-hour webinar focused on the benefits of a consistent yin yoga practice and why every yogi and human needs it in their lives! We will discuss the benefits of the practice from a physical perspective as we delve into the healing powers of stress on the tissues and flexibility for the long haul. This time will also be devoted to discussing the benefits of the practice of yin in the mind and spirit as well. Yoga is about connecting - so it's important we connect the dots on what is happening and transforming within us when we practice. This is also why yin is applicable and needed for every practitioner at some point - if not all the time. We are not balanced if we are all yang and no yin. Let's discuss!

LET’S TALK YIN | PRACTICE: Range of Motion – Compression vs. Tension

August 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
ONLINE WEBINAR
$10

It's one of the common frustrations in our asana. You want to go further, but you can't! While all of yoga is certainly not about being able to "touch your toes" - but it's good to understand what is stopping you. It's not always about having more flexibility. Sometimes, it's just how your body is built! In this webinar, we will discuss the difference between compression and tension and how to pursue more depth and when to surrender to what is in your body! Yoga Alliance CEU available upon request.

Teaching SAFE yin practice to your students to prevent injury Teaching SAFE yin practice to your students who already have an injury and if you should do so at all! How do we safely and mindfully instruct our students with injuries? We will take time talking through basic guidelines for injuries in yoga classes including how to learn about your students injuries, the difference between an acute and chronic issue, and what kind of verbiage to use so you don't put yourself into a position dealing with liability for furthering the injury. We will also take time breaking down injuries related to the practice of yin. How do we teach to hopefully prevent injury all together?

LET’S TALK YIN | TEACHING METHODOLOGY: Teaching Yogis with Injuries – PART II

October 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
ONLINE WEBINAR
$8 – $10

In this webinar, we will piggyback on the guidelines we discussed in part I related to yin yoga and injuries. Specifically, in this session we will cover several injuries that your students might walk into class with and how / when / if to teach these students with their safety in mind. Specific injuries to be discussed... Spine issues: disc issues, osteoporosis and scoliosis Arthritis in the joints Sciatica Knee tendon tears Shoulder issues and pain Of course, none of this is black and white in terms of clarity. In fact, most of the recommendations we will discuss are gray areas and merely recommendations to pay attention to sensation! But as The Four Agreements teach us, we can do our best and rest in knowing that we are doing all we can! This is an important reminder, especially when encountering students with injuries in the practice.
