LPY Master Class: Your Authentic Self - Teaching Through The Enneagram w/ Michael Mann

1:00 PM13:00

LPY Master Class: Your Authentic Self - Teaching Through The Enneagram w/ Michael Mann

Learn how to use the Enneagram, a personality assessment designed for self-actualization, to see what's keeping you (and your students) from realizing your most authentic self. Because the Enneagram places a great deal of importance on energy, and views the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies as one, it goes hand in hand with a yoga practice.

We will learn about each of the nine types, their "samskaras" of anger, shame, and anxiety, and how the types correspond to the energy points of the head, the heart, and the gut. We will then explore how to custom make a yoga practice that allows each type to grow and thrive.

With further understanding of this system and how it dovetails with a yoga asana practice, you can infuse it into your teaching, especially with private clients, to help your students deepen their understanding of themselves and their practice.

Barre for Beginners Workshop w/ Adriana

Barre for Beginners with Adri Lopes

Barre for Beginners is a 120- minute workshop that introduces the basic form, alignment, and structure of the traditional movements and exercises you will encounter in a typical LPB class. Expect hands on, individualized attention while moving through even the most daunting barre exercises. Ever wonder what wide second, pretzel, back dancing, or c-curve are, or how they can transform the body and spirit? Come find out.

New students, curious students, and even seasoned veterans will leave feeling confident, determined, and certainly a lot stronger!

Barre was derived by combining Ballet drills with rehabilitative physical therapy, combining isometric strength training, ballet conditioning, pilates and yoga. The goal in barre is to target the muscles with intervals of ballet inspired isometric toning exercises combined with yoga-inspired stretching to lengthen the muscles. The LPB method is designed to build strength, stability, flexibility, and most importantly, longevity.

About Rhonda:

Rhonda is a RYT 500 through the training of two master teachers; Jacqui Bonwell of Sacred Seeds Yoga School (200 hours) and Natasha Rizopoulos of Down Under School of Yoga (300 hours). The influence of these two brilliant teachers has shaped her teaching and allowed her to find her own voice. She began her yoga practice several years ago, but at the time viewed it as an additional form of physical fitness. Rhonda was a fitness professional, cycling teacher, runner, skier, Power Pilates instructor and personal trainer who once dreamed of being a body builder. “It took me a long time to stay for Shavasana, but once I did, I immediately felt the effects of the practice and my life changed profoundly. Yoga helped me to find balance between strength and ease; between fear and ego and between breath and movement. Yoga allowed me to quiet my very busy mind and learn to enjoy the present moment”.

Through certification and study on Yoga and Breast Cancer and the inspiration of a dear friend, Rhonda’s first students were undergoing treatment. She worked with students privately and through workshops she developed. Rhonda enjoys teaching public classes and private sessions and does so with intelligence and compassion. She teaches with attention to proper alignment and emphasizes staying present with breath and focus. Finding balance between Sthirha and Sukha (steadiness and ease) is what she strives for in herself and in her teaching. She learns something new from not only every class and workshop she takes, but from every student she meets. Rhonda owned, managed and taught at her own studio for 3 ½ years and while doing so developed The Beginners Yoga Series. She plans to continue to bring the series to the public.

“My goal is to bring the joy and lasting effects of yoga to as many people as possible; hoping to bring positive change to the world, one yogi at a time”.

Rhonda enjoys biking, skiing, paddle boarding, walking her 2 chocolate labs and spending time with her husband and two sons.

LPY Master Class: Barre Method For Yoga Sequencing w/ Linda Spolidoro

LPY Master Class: Barre Method For Yoga Sequencing w/ Linda Spolidoro

Is Barre the yang to Yoga’s yin? I had a love/hate relationship with barre the first time I took a class. I’m a yogi after all, and that “do-what-feels-good-rest-when-you-want” attitude inherent to a good yoga practice was replaced with a “stay-in-it-and-let-it-burn” encouragement that made me shake, sweat, and swear under my breath. However, I found that by making barre classes a part of my routine, my yoga practice became stronger, more stable and safer. My knees stopped hurting, my flexibility inexplicably increased, and my high to low push-ups no longer put any strain on my low back. Oh, and my core, forget about it!!! I became ridiculously strong.

I began to incorporate much of what I learned and taught in my barre classes into my yoga classes both in my own practice and as a teacher. What I found was an effective, efficient, and beautiful synchronicity that helped me to move my students through smarter and more functional sequences, while awakening and creating a new kind of muscular strength. While the yoga poses generally target the bigger muscle groups in large ranges of motion, barre targets singular and often forgotten muscles in a sustained, targeted, and much smaller range. 

We’ll learn about fast twitch muscles vs slow twitch muscles, why and what that burning sensation is, explore how to modify for injury while still targeting the desired muscle/s, how to add the ‘barre’ while sequencing in a way that keeps the ‘yoga’ and finally how the mindfulness, breathing, and connection to the body in yoga is the perfect compliment to the internal fortitude it takes to get through the barre exercises (and visa versa). The last hour of class will give you the opportunity to try it yourselves as I lead you through a one hour yoga/barre fusion practice.

LPY Master Class: How To Be A Beginner & Teach Beginners w/ Rhonda Skloff

We are all Beginners.  Each time we step on our mat it is a new experience, a new practice.  Approaching our own yoga practice with curiosity and without attachment to the results of our efforts is like being a beginner over and over for all of us.  

Teaching to Beginners is challenging but is the most gratifying mode of teaching.  We as teachers have the awesome responsibility of opening the world's minds & bodies to the gift of yoga. To help people find balance & calm within themselves will inevitably make an impact on the people in their own lives and eventually change the world one yogi at a time.   I truly believe this.  

I cannot wait to share The Beginners Yoga Series with you, how it has evolved and how it will have an impact on your teaching and on your own practice.

LPY 200-Hour FALL 2018 Certified Teacher Training w/ Lorraine Shedoudi

Double Certified!  200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certification & Balanced Athlete Certification

Whether your intention is to teach or just deepen your personal practice, the Lexington Power Yoga 200 hour teacher training program is designed in a way that encourages an authentic exploration and genuine understanding of yoga through critical analysis and direct experience. Together, we’ll witness the emergence of smart and confident teachers as well as wise and thoughtful practitioners.

This training will push you out of your comfort zone. You’ll have the opportunity to practice more deeply, explore yoga breath work (pranayama), practice meditation, and learn how to speak confidently in front of a class. We’ll explore what is happening anatomically when we ask students to move in and out of specific poses, injury modification, and how to teach to an ‘all levels’ group of students.

You’ll emerge with a deeper, more comprehensive understanding of yoga and how the yoga industry impacts the history and practice of yoga. 

The training includes a Balanced Athlete Certification with founder, Johnny Gillespie. For the first time ever we will also be seeing traveling guests such as Alexandria Crow, creator of Yoga Physics. Alex’s unique perspective has revolutionized how we think about certain poses. Jacqui Bonwell will demystify the Yoga Sutras and the Chakras in a way that feels accessible. You’ll be learning from the best, the people who are helping to shape the yoga industry throughout the country.

The LPY training is unique in that it offers support and mentoring well after your certification is complete. As you go out into the yoga world and begin to navigate the business of teaching public classes, we’ll be there to support you. 

The program’s lead teacher, Lorraine Shedoudi, has over 10 years of teaching experience. In her time at LPY, she has personally overseen the graduation of 7 groups of teacher trainees. Her commitment to continued education and her ability to share what she has learned makes for smarter, stronger and more well-rounded yoga teachers. 

Along side Lorraine, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from experienced and versatile lead teachers and mentors, Linda Spolidoro and Tina Adoniou, who bring their own expertise, years of practical teaching experience, and their own unique perspectives. Together, with this powerful staff you’ll be supported, encouraged, and eager to learn more.

What sets the LPY Teacher Training apart from other 200 hour trainings in New England is the fact that LPY is the ONLY program that not only provides you with a certification from Yoga Alliance but also a Balanced Athlete Certification from Johnny Gillespie.

LPY Master Class: Hypermobility, Functional Movement & Your Yoga w/ Jillian McDonough

LPY Master Class: Hypermobility, Functional Movement & Your Yoga w/ Jillian McDonough

1:00 - 4:00pm

$25

Hypermobility is the ability to take a joint outside the “normal” range of function. In general population we may see 10% of a pooled population being hypermobil but if you look around at your classes, your regular clients, and likely you, you will see the percentage of yoga students with hyper mobility to be much higher.

In this workshop we will break down hyper mobility by testing our own joints for end range and see where we fall in the anatomical range of function.
Does it make sense to be working at our end range if it is a hyper Mobil state and how often are we asking our practioners to do that. Let’s examine some key poses, their anatomical functional range and then what we are asking from bodies. I will also talk to sequencing within range of motion and to strength of posture, deconstructing some common postures and building them back up again.

We will end with a short class that sequences to functional range and stability. This workshop is NOT just for teachers. If you are curious about your body and how it moves this is for you. Likelihood is, if you are nailing those picture perfect poses there is room to examine how you are getting there and if it is working for you in the long run.

“habitual actions that don’t serve us well and these are often exploited in the most common/repetitive vinyasa yoga sequences. For example, countless women who have practiced vinyasa yoga for more than a few years are discovering that they have minor to serious hip injuries (e.g. hip labrum tears or degeneration). There is even an injury that is often called "yoga butt" (upper hamstring tendon). Generally, someone who is genetically flexible (and many adept yoga students fit into the "hyper-mobile" category) is attracted to yoga and praised for their genetic capabilities...and often those same "strengths" are exploited (the student is encouraged to consistently go to her end range of motion during every asana) and eventually they become weaknesses.”

Friday Night @ LPY- Prayers for Charlotte Benefit Class with Joanne Carlisle

Please consider joining Joanne Carlisle for a donation based class on March 30th @7:30 benefiting Prayers for Charlotte, a 100% volunteer organization that works to raise funds for neuroblastoma research and relief for families fighting pediatric cancer. Close friends with Charlotte's mom, Patrice, Joanne hopes this 75 minute class will bring our compassionate, generous, and kind community together to support those who need us the most. This class will provide opportunities to open the heart, to connect to others and move in a way that reminds us that we are all a part of something bigger. Our sense of community, our ability to be there for each other, and our love for ourselves and those around us will be celebrated.

The horror of cancer has touched each of us. Cancer is devastating regardless of age but neuroblastoma, an especially aggressive form of cancer, is particularly heartbreaking as it occurs most often in infants and very young children.

Charlotte was one of those children. Charlotte Rose Kelly was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma at the age of two. She endured aggressive treatments for two and a half years. Charlotte was brave and stoic through her darkest days and courageously fought until her body could take no more, passing on December 7, 2011. Charlotte loved singing chipmunks, markers and stickers, ballet slippers, and books. Charlotte Rose Kelly was Love.

Suggested Donation: $25 cash/check please

Katie Mazure is excited to announce that she has committed to biking 192 miles this August from Sturbridge to Provincetown for the Pan Mass Challenge. Whether battling it ourselves or watching our loved ones suffer, cancer continues to have a major impact on society.

In 2017 Katie’s family had lost two very loved individuals. She lost her uncle to colon cancer after 12 years of a courageous fight, and lost her aunt to a very short battle of pancreatic cancer. She will be riding in memory of them! Katie is a proud supporter of the PMC because it is leading a charge to beat cancer. Last year 100% of rider-raised revenue went directly to support the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's (DFCI) tireless commitment to finding a cure.

The PMC raises more money for charity than any other single event in the country, and because every penny matters, 100% of your donation goes to DFCI. Katie feel’s privileged to get to ride this route to honor those no longer with us, and to support those continuing to fight their battle. Every dollar counts, and is appreciated more than you can possibly imagine. Thank you, and we hope you consider taking this donation based class to help Katie get closer to her goal of $5,000!

About Rhonda:

Rhonda is a RYT 500 through the training of two master teachers; Jacqui Bonwell of Sacred Seeds Yoga School (200 hours) and Natasha Rizopoulos of Down Under School of Yoga (300 hours). The influence of these two brilliant teachers has shaped her teaching and allowed her to find her own voice. She began her yoga practice several years ago, but at the time viewed it as an additional form of physical fitness. Rhonda was a fitness professional, cycling teacher, runner, skier, Power Pilates instructor and personal trainer who once dreamed of being a body builder. “It took me a long time to stay for Shavasana, but once I did, I immediately felt the effects of the practice and my life changed profoundly. Yoga helped me to find balance between strength and ease; between fear and ego and between breath and movement. Yoga allowed me to quiet my very busy mind and learn to enjoy the present moment”.

Through certification and study on Yoga and Breast Cancer and the inspiration of a dear friend, Rhonda’s first students were undergoing treatment. She worked with students privately and through workshops she developed. Rhonda enjoys teaching public classes and private sessions and does so with intelligence and compassion. She teaches with attention to proper alignment and emphasizes staying present with breath and focus. Finding balance between Sthirha and Sukha (steadiness and ease) is what she strives for in herself and in her teaching. She learns something new from not only every class and workshop she takes, but from every student she meets. Rhonda owned, managed and taught at her own studio for 3 ½ years and while doing so developed The Beginners Yoga Series. She plans to continue to bring the series to the public.

“My goal is to bring the joy and lasting effects of yoga to as many people as possible; hoping to bring positive change to the world, one yogi at a time”.

Rhonda enjoys biking, skiing, paddle boarding, walking her 2 chocolate labs and spending time with her husband and two sons.

Love Yourself: A Spa Yoga Experience w/ Stephen Amelia & Anne Marie Henke
Jan

3:00 PM15:00

Love Yourself: A Spa Yoga Experience w/ Stephen Amelia & Anne Marie Henke

Join us for this special 90-minute SPA Yoga class. SPA Yoga is a slow, floor-based, whole-body experience. By engaging all five of the senses with soft candlelight, soothing music, aromatherapy, lots of hands-on assists and a renewed awareness of taste (and sometimes chocolate!), SPA aligns practitioners with the inner wisdom of deep relaxation. The physical practice takes time to open the body’s subtle energy and prepares students to experience new depths of awareness in an extended, guided savasana. During SPA Yoga, you will discover extra hands-on assists and massage, a calming candlelit room, delightful scents and beautiful music in the background. 

Ann Marie and Stephen have a few surprises in store for this class.

Register early to secure your spot. Space is limited.

Meet Ann Marie

Ann Marie began practicing yoga almost two decades ago and has believed in the power of this practice for both body and soul ever since. For years she was content as a practitioner and yoga helped her through everything in her life -- good and bad. In 2013, that changed when she finally got off her mat and pursued teaching. Ann Marie is a RYT-200 and SPA certified teacher who believes in the accessibility of yoga for all body types, athletic ability, and ages. Her teaching style combines physical challenges with positive reinforcement of a deeper them such as opening your heart or tapping into your inner warrior. She believes that happiness is within each and everyone of us and that yoga can help her students to tap into their inner light and happiness.  

Meet Stephen  

Stephen started his practice over 15 years ago when he moved from Baltimore to Boston. He began with a private lesson and immediately was drawn to the physical practice. Over time he started to enjoy a more peaceful mind, more patience with himself and others, and welcome relief from day to day stresses.

He enrolled in a teacher training program to deepen his practice, and through that program, he discovered a love for teaching. His light-hearted classes infuse humor and a genuine enthusiasm for watching people learn new things about themselves on their mat.

Stephen is a member of the yoga alliance and is an E-RYT and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP). 

Stephen has studied with David Magone, Betty Riaz and a number of other teachers and he is incredibly grateful for their kindness and willingness to share their knowledge. In addition to leading his own workshops, Stephen has assisted David Magone with yoga teacher training and meditation teacher training. He's also assisted Betty Riaz's SPA Yoga teacher training programs.

Congruence - Where Intention & Outcome Meet w/Alexandria Crow

ABOUT THE WEEKEND:
January 5th, 6th, 7th 2018
$50 Single Workshop
$225 Full Weekend (by 12/1/17 $250 after 12/1/17)

Friday, January 5th 6pm-9pm
Saturday, January 6th 12:30pm-4pm
Saturday, January 6th 5:00-8:30pm
Sunday, January 7th 12:30pm-4pm
Sunday, January 7th 5:00-8:30pm

CONGRUENCE - WHERE INTENTION & OUTCOME MEET
What are you trying to teach as a yoga teacher, not just on the surface but at the deep reaches? What are you aiming to learn or gain as a student? What is it that motivates you to teach and to practice? How are you teaching that? How do you approach learning the intended outcome? How do you take where you are as a teacher and/or student and move the needle of intention closer to the outcome? How do you adapt or toss the things that aren’t working, create new practice and teaching techniques for the ones that get tossed? How do you create a practice experience that is effective, personal and your own both as the teacher and the student? Teaching and practicing yoga in group classes can be a beautiful and inclusive experience of individual self discovery, but it can also be one that feels impersonal, exclusive, and about just trying to keep up to please everyone. The community aspect of a yoga practice is one of the things that a lot of students love and it can be expanded to be more inclusive and personal, leading to more acceptance and ease within each student. The information and tools that we are trying to teach are sometimes missed and can be difficult to integrate and understand as the student. How do you teach people to make skillful choices as an individual within a group setting? How do you make it safe for students to explore their individuality and their patterns of belief? How do you facilitate student choices that may be different than usual, even confrontational to you as teacher? Every body is different. Every mind is different. There are so many diverse styles of classes these days. What each person needs in order to learn the concepts presented in yoga is unique.

 

Come spend a weekend with Alexandria Crow taking all these seeming differences of body, mind, and style of class and work to create a classroom experience that is deeply personal and individually effective. Sessions will include practice, lecture on the topic, mechanics/anatomy of the body, and class planning worksheets and tools.

FRIDAY 6-9pm
Yoga - What Are You Aiming For?
Intention + Outcome = Yoga Practice > Yoga as Outcome
Yoga Philosophy & History
What is this word yoga? Where did it come from? How has it morphed and changed over the years through its many shifts and changes? What is a practice and what has it been through the ages? In this workshop we will look at the history of yoga as it moved through time and cultures to examine what the practices were aiming to teach and how. We will discuss what it is we’re aiming to teach our students today where those concepts came from historically, and what methods we are currently using. How do you teach and access these concepts currently in the style of classes you teach or take? How do we bring the intention and outcome closer together? How do we allow our students to access that information more readily? This session will include a short practice and tools to begin to assess where teachers and students are in terms of intention and outcome in their teaching and practice.

SATURDAY SESSION ONE 12:30- 4pm
Bodies, Joints, Muscles & Poses - Stability, Mobility, Range of Motion & Asana
Intention + Outcome = The Body’s Makeup, Mechanics & Movements > Anatomically Wise and Sustainable Practice Building Applied Anatomical Concepts For Asana Teachers and Practitioners How do bodies move? Learn about how muscles work, release and stabilize to move the body and hold it in position. How far should joints move? When is it not enough and when do they go too far? We will look at the different variables involved in stability, mobility, range of motion and the postures that are taught in most yoga classes today. We will debunk the concept of stretching and flexibility and rebuild those components in ways that are aligned with how the muscular and fascia systems work. Skeletal variations and differences will be discussed in order to set up postures in a way that is wise for each individual. We will look at poses through the lens of muscular activation, release, stability, and potential counter productive sensations, creating a sensory experience in class that invites each student to use the poses and movements as a tool for personal learning, exploration and skillful choice making.

SATURDAY SESSION TWO 5-8:30pm
Fire - Physically Demanding Hard Work With A Twist
Intention + Outcome = Work the Body Wisely > Calm The Mind Vinyasa/Power/Flow/Hatha
These are some of the most popular classes at this point in time, and yet some of the most difficult within which to achieve the outcome that a yoga practice intends philosophically. How do you get students to work hard, move, and do it with ethical integrity? This session will contain a practice based around the vinyasa/power model that takes individuals and personal choice into account, allows for exploration and discovery, is physically demanding but also limits the risks and pitfalls in classes today. We will deconstruct the postures and activities used during the practice from an anatomical and biomechanical standpoint. Functional range of motion vs limited range vs hypermobility will be discussed as they are important physical considerations to take into account within this type of class. The expectations of students and teachers in relation to this class style will also be discussed and alternatives that offer the same outcome without the problematic components will be offered in an effort to marry the intention and outcome of these classes in relation to a yoga practice more closely than is often possible.

SUNDAY SESSION ONE 12:30-4:00
Calm - Quieting the Noisy Body/Mind Loop
Intention + Outcome = Balance the Nerves > Calm The Mind Restoratives/Yin/Therapeutics
The nervous system states, skeletal range, and basic biomechanics in relation to commonly taught restorative/yin/therapeutic classes. We will explore how the nervous system affects the body, its range of motion, the mind, and more. There will be an hour long assessment inventory and practice where students will set a baseline of their personal range of motion and skeletal structure both before and after a class aimed at calming and balancing their nervous system. The practice will be followed by a deconstruction and reconstruction of common postures within these styles in an effort to have them function more effectively and to lessen injury and/or calm a heightened nervous system. We will explore the joint’s range of motion in relation to poses, and find ways to create postures that fall within the functional range in an effort to create a sustainable and calming class outcome.

SUNDAY SESSION TWO 5-8:30
Class Planning Laboratory - Purposeful Creativity
Intention + Outcome = Lesson Plans For Personal Exploration & Discovery > Students Who Know What Is Wise For Them & How To Advance Sequencing and Formatting Classes

Class planning can be difficult, daunting and monotonous. In this session you will introduce how to plan classes using what you’ve learned no matter what the style or level. Students and teachers will work through planning a class from start to finish, using class planning tools designed to give students a personal experience in a group setting so that they learn to approach the topic being presented in a way that is skillful and wise for them. Participants will then be led through the class that was created in an effort to experience the concepts presented and developed. Participants will learn how to create class plans that turn classes into a personal laboratory that is inclusive, invites inquiry, creates a safe place for exploration and when necessary allows difficult choices to be made by students so that they learn what is wise for them which can translate clearly to applying yoga off the mat as well. Class planning worksheets will be provided as well as emailed afterwards for continued use.
