This twelve-hour workshop will highlight the importance of understanding the neuroscience and physiology of the stress response. You will learn how yoga works to establish a healthy nervous system and brain and why this is valuable information for anyone wishing to teach yoga in an outreach setting. We will link this to yoga philosophy and the wider traditional teachings of yoga.
Over the weekend we will share practice together, learn from each other and have plenty of time for group discussion.
Alongside this, we will discuss some of the practicalities, ethics and challenges of working in the community. We will demonstrate practical tools to enable you to begin to build the skills necessary to offer safe, authentic yoga classes which meet the needs of the client group, giving consideration to teaching cues and some of the needs of the clients we work with and what we have found to be helpful.
Throughout the two days you will be led through several yoga practices, which will encompass our approach to asana, pranayama and meditation and prompt you to begin to develop your own.
While we will have lots of time to experiences the practices for ourselves and consider how they impact on us and our students. Please note this workshop will not be focused on teaching specific asana or on training yoga teachers in a particular style of yoga.
Our wish is that you can apply the principles you learn to your individual teaching style and have the confidence to reach out to groups of people who might not turn up to a general yoga class.
