At Namaste, we train you to enhance you own authentic voice. We'll show you the principles of a sound vinyasa flow, as well as yoga philosophy, teaching methodology, anatomy and physiology, meditation and breathing techniques. As you learn, you will participate in the yogic method of self-study (svadhyaya), which helps you get the the heart of who you are. You'll connect with your own reasons for wanting to share the gift of yoga. This knowledge leads to transformative experiences that will inform your personal practice as well as your teaching practice.
How do you wake up muscles, joints, your breath, your brain? Is good alignment the same thing as good posture? How do you improve the health of your feet, and why should you? What does vision have to do with it?
This 90-minute workshop will look at all these questions and more. Incorporating Eischens Yoga, functional movement, vision and vestibular training, interoception, and all kinds of other fancy words, this evening event will help you discover how you currently move, and learn how you could be moving.
The best part: you just have to show up, ready to play..
Open to all levels.
