Jan 13: Kathy: Modifications and Working with Injuries - for Students and Teachers: Lake Zurich session 1: 12-2:45, session 2: 3:10-6pm

(part of the 300 hour teacher training, & open to all students of yoga.) Eligible for 6 hours CE credits.

 

The first part of the workshop is tailored to students and teachers. The second part of the workshop is tailored for teachers, although students are welcome to attend both sessions

 

Have you ever been in a yoga class, the teacher calls out a pose you cannot do, and you spend your time sitting and watching the rest of the class? Early on when I started practicing yoga, I wanted to learn how I could still feel part of the class, how I could modify the poses for my own body and limitations. I spent many years documenting what was the 'action' required to get into the pose, then creatively put together my own modifications so that I could still benefit from the pose. Students: use this knowledge to take action to progress in your yoga practice in a safe, well thought-out way. Teachers: learn how to use this valuable tool to serve a broader customer base. Using precise alignment techniques.

 

(Students will be encouraged ahead to email me prior to the workshop with a list of poses you find challenging)

 

The second part of the workshop is tailored for teachers, although students are welcome to attend both sessions

 

Fee $62.50 per session: divided into two sessions. Please choose add two sessions to your cart (add the buy now link twice) if you are taking the full 6 hours.

(part of the 300 hour teacher training, & open to all students of yoga.) Eligible for 7 hours CE credits.

 

How do we live an optimal human life?

Ayurveda and Yoga are sister sciences that merge seamlessly to find answers to this age-old question.

 

In these sessions we will integrate basic Ayurveda theory with Hatha Yoga and meditation. Our intention is to create a comprehensive, nourishing and sweetly challenging yoga practice while providing you with practical and accessible tools to accelerate your wellness path through Ayurveda.

 

Each session will open with a vibrant one-hour lecture on an aspect of Ayurveda followed by an asana practice that embodies our lesson.

 

Three individual sessions:

 

Sat am - 11-1:30 Full range practice of all categories of poses

 


Sat pm - 3-5:30:  Hip Openers, Forward Bends, Meditation

 

Sun - 11-1:30:  Nourishing Backbends

 

$48 a session, discounted to $130 for all 3 sessions.

 

Marc has been teaching Hatha yoga for well over a decade.  Spending most of his life in Los Angeles and New York, he currently calls Paris his home.  Certified in Anusara in 2006, his teaching has now evolved to include a number of styles that have influenced him on his yogic path: the movement of Vinyasa Flow, the precision of Iyengar, the dance of Kundalini, his deep love for mantra and meditation, and his passion for Ayurveda. Marc skillfully weaves themes through his classes in order for each student to experience a journey that goes beyond the body and pierces deeply into the Heart.

 

In 2007 he created Guerilla Yogi, a donation-based class that insures that students of all economic circumstances can experience the joy of yoga.  When he is not in Paris, he teaches worldwide either live or via the many classes that are streamed through the internet on YogaGlo.
