Live With Purpose: Vision & Goals Workshop

An afternoon of vision and goal setting --- to start the new year, check in mid-way, or just see where you're at with your goals. I can't recommend this workshop enough.  Participating in this workshop the last few years inspired me to host a workshop myself. Seeing my goals everyday has changed what I've chosen to persue in my career and personal life. Workshops can be for any group size.

YOGA TEACHER
MEETUP

As the community at Sangha Studio grows, so does our outreach. Our connection within the local teaching community is getting larger and larger each month. We recognize this and want to harness this connection to grow and learn together. And so…Yoga Teacher Meetup was born..

 

Each meetup is designed to be an open, confidential space to ask questions and process through anything that may be going on for you or within the yoga teaching community. Each meetup will have a focus for discussion but is intended to be a place where things even outside the topic can be brought up. As a teacher, we will all share what we know and ask what we want to learn.

 

All meetups are donation-based and run around two hours. Meetup will start with 30 minutes of meet and mingling, 45 minutes of discussion, and 45 minutes of workshop. Everyone is invited to bring anything they would like to share – readings, workshops they are hosting, snacks, drinks, etc. We look forward to growing our teaching sangha with you.

 

Occurs monthly at Sangha Studio. See Sangha Studio's website for dates. Online options available via Google Hangout.

Assisting 101 Workshop
"A hug, pat on the back, and even a friendly handshake are processed by the reward center in the central nervous system, which is why they can have a powerful impact on the human psyche, making us feel happiness and joy… “
 
Do you teach yoga? Do you love when you’re in a class and get a deep assist that melts your body in the pose?
 
Assisting 101 is geared towards new yoga teachers, curious yoga students or anyone wanting to become more comfortable and confident in their assisting technique. We will talk about movements of the spine, physical principles that can be applied to various classes of asana, finding lines of energy in each pose, and how to assist those lines to bring a student deeper into the pose. We will explore techniques for protecting our own bodies as the teacher and learning what works best for each of us. This workshop will start with a short flow to warm up our bodies, but much of the workshop will be based around discussion and breakout practice. By the end of this workshop, you should feel confident in your assisting skills so that you can bring added value to your classes and deepen your personal practice as a yoga student. Atendees should bring a notebook. Photos will be taken are shared privately online following the workshop to serve as a reference point.
ADVANCED ASANA 
(a workshop about
going deeper)
Advanced Asana is a workshop on advancing the physical (asana) yoga practice by breaking down the basics and understanding alignment, working on jump-throughs, press-ups and creative transitions. We will learn what the bandhas are and how to effectively use them in our practice and explore breathing techniques, both of which can allow us to go deeper in the mind and body, We will combine these elements with the hopes that each participant will find their own fluidity to their practice and bring it to the next level. Participants should be comfortable practicing inversions, even if you cannot balance away from the wall yet,
TIP & SIP
(an arm balance workshop)

In this workshop we will explore arm balances from crow to formidable and the techniques for bringing weightlessness and ease to balancing. We will use breath and control to allow balances to help cultivate a single minded focus and awareness in our lives. Fresh juice will be served after class. No prior arm balance experience needed.

BEYOND THE MAT WORKSHOP 
(how to build a home practice)

This workshop will focus on the asana portion from the Beyond the Mat Retreat. We will discuss how to develop a home practice space and basic sequencing principles in relation to body mechanics and alignment.  During the workshop, each particpant will develop a 15 minute, 30 minute, and 60 minute sequence of postures based on the principles presented. The goal is to leave feeling prepared for a safe and effective regular home practice.

This workshop is all about finding what style of meditation works for you: how to sit/stand/etc., music or not, breathing techniques, ways to focus the mind, etc. The goal at the end of this workshop is that each participant has the main elements to begin a regular meditation practice and the excitement to explore the many different ways to meditate. Through this practice, we can all find what works for each of us and train the mind.

Fluid Transitions
& Yoga Nidra Class

Fluid Transitions is flow-shop style class that is about taking our physical (asana) practice to the next level. We will work on creative transitions that involve arm balances, jump-throughs, and inversions. We will explore breathing techniques and discuss the bandhas and how to effectively use these tools in our practice. Combining these elements, the goal of this class is that that each participant will be one step closer to finding their own intuitive flow and deepening their practice. Class will end with an extended savasana and guided yoga nidra meditation.

This class will move beyond basic alignment cues. To get the most physically out of this class, participants should be comfortable with warrior poses, chaturanga alignment, and crow pose. Not wanting to be as physical but still want to come? Join in, practice what you wish, ask questions, and be a part of it.

Through this workshop we will look at variations for many inversions and learn how to use props and assists to deepen our inversion practice safely and effectively. We will learn how to gain control, begin to understand the pivot point in our bodies, and focus on breath control while upside down. Participants can expect to practice poses including Pincha Mayurasana (Forearm Stand) and Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Handstand). This workshop is geared toward people who have a comfortable Bakasana (Crow Pose) practice and have been playing with kicking into Handstand against a wall.
