Experiential Workshop / Training [clear filter]
Friday, March 10

10:00am MST

Tech Neck
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Long hours spent at a computer create a forward-pitched head posture resulting in neck & shoulder tension. Carrying around children, driving, and stress from every day activities can also slowly whittle away at our uprightness creating a head-forward, slump-shouldered and collapsed chest posture often resulting in neck, arm and upper back pain (what Tias Little calls "schlump-asana"). The focus in this workshop will be on releasing tension in the neck, upper shoulders, and jaw and creating greater freedom of movement in those areas. Reducing cranial pressure may also result in relief from common complaints such as migraines, insomnia, eye strain, and bruxism. The shoulders are so closely tied to the neck that when there is shoulder strain it often comes with neck pain. In this workshop, we'll explore gentle flowing movements (the SATYA work developed by Tias Little) as a way of releasing holding patterns in the neck and shoulders and hydrating these areas with an increased flow of blood & prana, both vital in maintaining the health and longevity of the shoulders, cervical spine, and their surrounding structures. Parameters for participation include: the ability to get up and down off the floor without assistance, freedom from medical devices, and no acute spinal disc or nerve compression. No prior yoga experience is necessary.

Heart to heart: Self care while teaching to trauma sensitive populations
Limited Capacity seats available

When we teach to trauma sensitive populations, we are doubly charged with teaching from a place of integrity. We must be willing to teach from a place of authenticity and total presence, while also maintaining unflinching safety for our students. How do we maintain those boundaries while staying engaged and compassionate? And how do we stay open while also taking care of ourselves? During this workshop, we will explore practices for maintaining personal well being while staying connected to the heart. We will explore our own reasons for doing the work we do, and delve into the ways that may or may not affect our ability to stay present with our students. Until we are scrupulously clear about our motives and the ways in which we care for them, we cannot operate with integrity. By tending to our own hearts, we can more fully attend to the hearts of others. Finally, we will identify specific practices for self care, including restorative yoga, soothing mantras, and self massage.

Balance and Brains
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Neuroplasticity refers to the brains ability to form new neural pathways in response to new
situations and stimulus, and we can all use help with our balance. As we age we begin to notice a decreased sense of balance, and we know that a fall can affect our lives, the lives of our family or students drastically.

In this workshop we will work on exercises to improve your balance as well as exercises for
improved cognitive ability with a mind/body connection.
