The teacher clinics at Functional Synergy are for yoga teachers, teacher trainees and yoga students who want to learn more. They are part of a unique process to help you understand anatomy in movement - not only the names of muscles and where they are located, and which asanas do this or that, but also to truly understand how a body moves.
If you are new to my style of teaching, Kinesiology of Yoga is the necessary pre-requisite for the Therapeutic Yoga Intensive. I call it my "no fuss, no muss", let's get into the Annaymaya Kosha and dig into biomechanics. When you leave you will understand biomechanical principles as they relate to asanas, alignment and yoga cueing. We'll explore physical concepts - fascia, muscle, bone, and how these concepts work together to create a yoga practice. Come to this session if you have ever asked "why do some teachers teach heel to arch, and others heel to heel"; or "why do some students understand a yoga cue and others don't"; or "why am I so darn stuck in this pose, nothing I do seems to help". Join me - let's dig in, let's create some physical space so that tapas can occur and prana can arise.
Kinesiology of Yoga is being offered in Calgary in April 2013, and in Toronto in September 2013. To check out the dates, prices and details - go to www.functionalsynergy.com/shop/trainings.
12 hours of pre-requisite training are required before attending the Therapeutic Yoga Intensive. The Kinesiology of Yoga training offers this requirement.
The purpose of the pre-requisite is two-fold:
- It gives you a chance to “kick my tires”, and to see if what I offer resonates with you.
- You learn the basic fundamentals so that when you take the Intensive you truly are ready to deepen your understanding of movement, healing and therapeutic programming.
