2019 CPD WORKSHOPS


UNLOCKING THE LANGUAGE OF YOGA with YOGINI AMI ROY
Sunday 17th March, 9.30 a.m. to 11 a.m

We all know that Sanskrit is the classical language of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism ~ and, of course, Yoga, the name Sanskrit means "refined", "consecrated" and ‘sanctified’.  I've often wondered where the Sanskrit words and phrases that I use in class go after they've been uttered- not just names of asanas but various phrases that pepper the hour and a half of a class.  I've had some amazing responses as I've taken my students through a journey of discovery of this wonderful vocabulary. It has left us feeling more enriched and deeply connected to our practice on the mat.

In this workshop, I offer up an invitation to come along and discuss how we can introduce some wonderful Sanskrit phrases and the underlying philosophical concepts within the class setting.  I will offer up suggestions and simple tools which we could all use either fully or in part in our classes. We can also discuss how this will enrich our own engagement with both the semantics of this beautiful language and the deeper concepts that the yogic phrases present for our own practice and lives.

BACK TO (BAD) BACK with YOGINI LUCI TRENDLE and SIMON WIGHTWICK
Sunday 19th May, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m (with 20 minute tea-break)

In 2016 the office for National Statistics (ons.gov.uk) reported that the second most common reason for sickness in the UK was musculoskeletal problems, which include bad backs, second only to ‘minor’ illnesses such as coughs and colds. 

But what does ‘bad back’ actually mean?  Why is it so prevalent in today’s society?

In this workshop we will focus on the anatomy of the back; the skeletal structure and its relationship with the supporting musculature.  We will discuss common back issues that, as yoga teachers, we are presented with frequently.  

We will explore how we can evaluate our clients’ posture through the subjective, observation and understanding of their difficultly in movement and movement patterns. This will then determine how to support their movement through asana practice to support their spines.  We can then focus on the connecting muscle groups and explore how to re-align and adjust according to the individuals physical capabilities through both testing and asana practice.

LETTING GO THROUGH ASANA with YOGIN TIM SWANSON
Sunday 2nd June, 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Stress, anxiety and tension are not confined to the psyche, they invade the body and armour muscles.  In this workshop we will look at three areas of ‘letting go:

~ Letting go with movement.  Here we use asana along with muscle energy techniques to explore the range of movement and our habitual holding patterns that might be inhibiting that movement.

~ As Yoga teachers we continuously seek to explore adjustment.  Here we will be looking at touch and its use in letting go.  We will learn to help our students focus on the sensations of release.  In this section we will also look at self-help for the Yoga teacher in the use of touch on tender and restricted points.

~ Will focus on our ability to travel within ourselves using attention  and breath to explore and let go habitual holding patterns.

WORKING WITH CURRENT DAY MALADIES with YOGINI ELIZABETH BELL
Sunday 22nd September 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (with 20 minute tea-break)

This workshop will explore some current day stress related disorders like panic attacks, social anxiety & emotional dysregulation with the intention of considering the role of yoga in combatting these contemporary ailments. This workshop will promote a greater knowledge foundation to enable teachers to work with people with stress related conditions more confidently. I work frequently with such conditions both in my counselling practice & teaching yoga in private tuition.

The workshop is aimed at yoga teachers who teach group classes & private tuition as people can turn up in our regular classes for support as well as approaching us for one to one sessions. If you are developing your practice to include private tuition it will only be a matter of time before you experience clients approaching you with some of these stress-related disorders.

It will add to your knowledge & understanding of some contemporary disorders & their key features so as to promote confidence & ability to teach & use yoga with clients with stress related disorders. We will make time to discuss & describe some key features of specific stress related disorders including panic attacks, acute social anxiety & emotional dysregulation and examine the physiological presentations & appreciate their varied manifestations
