Congruence - Where Intention & Outcome Meet  w/Alexandria Crow

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.

Barre for Beginners w/ Adriana

Barre for Beginners is a 90 minutes 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.

The influence of these two brilliant teachers has shaped her teaching and allowed her to find her own voice.

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.

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”.
