Libro de Yoga Mark Stephens 2

Morning (9:00–13:00)

Description: This Yoga Teacher Intensive beginning with a lecture on the philosophy and principles of Yoga Sequencing. We will then work collaborative to design a variety of Beginning to Intermediate Yoga classes with different Peak Asanas, emphasizing how to make the asanas more accessible, sustainable, and deeply transformational.

 

Afternoon (15:00–17:30)

Topic: Master Class: Deep Hip Opening & Calming Forward Bends. Description: We often carry tension in the more hidden parts of bodies, especially in the hips and all up and down the back of the body from our heels to our neck. With tightness in our hips we are more limited in our mobility, even more so if we are with strong yoga, sports, and other intense activity. The tension across the back of the body, especially in the hamstrings, along the spine and around the neck, can make even simple activity in daily life uncomfortable and more stressful. This class is designed to work slowly, gradually and deeply into these areas of tension with a balanced set of asanas (postures) and breathing techniques. You will learn simple techniques of sequencing for making a wide variety of hip openers and forward bends more accessible as we explore stretching and bringing greater awareness to areas where we hold on to things that limit us in daily life.

Evening (19: 00-21: 00)

Topic: Yoga Sequencing – Part II: Designing Advanced Classes.

Description: This session continues the Yoga Teacher Intensive on Sequencing with the practical applications we started in Part I, focusing on designing integrated classes for more advanced students.

Topic: Yoga Sequencing – Part III: Designing Chakra Balancing and Restorative Yoga Classes.

Description: This session continues the Yoga Teacher Intensive on Sequencing with the practical applications we started in Part I, focusing on energetic balance. We will look closely at the subtle energetic of chakras and at how to design classes for the greatest restorative and therapeutic benefits.
