IDEA World Fitness Convention 2013

August 9, 2013 @ 10:30 am - August 10, 2013 @ 9:50 am

483: YOGression™ for the Upper Body

CECs/CEUs: ACE 0.20, AFAA 0.90, NASM 0.20
Workshop presented by: Lauren Eirk
Time Block L – Friday, 10:20am-12:10pm

In this session, you will learn what progression in yoga really means. See why longer practices requiring rigorous adjustments, or forcing oneself into difficult positions, are not the way to achieve the goal of a particular position. Learn how to progress your students in several arm-balancing poses, with ways to strengthen hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, and cervical regions using various interpretations and variations of yoga asanas.

561: Journey to the Beginner’s Mind (Yoga)

CECs/CEUs: ACE 0.15, AFAA 0.75, NASM 0.10
Workshop presented by: Lauren Eirk
Time Block N – Friday, 5:00-6:30pm

Cultivating a beginner’s mind is critical to developing effective teaching techniques. Learn why progression is halted when the overall integrity of a pose is not experienced. In this workshop, seven different fundamental yoga asanas will be explored, each chosen for its complexity, joint positions and importance. We will cover cuing, altering forces within the pose and modifying the poses. The session will end with a guided meditation.

620: Yoga I.S.® and the Hip

CECs/CEUs: ACE 0.20, AFAA 0.90, NASM 0.20
Workshop presented by: Lauren Eirk
Time Block O – Saturday, 7:30-9:20am

Did you know that we cannot open our hips?  Learn why so many students ask for this in our sessions.  Why do hips feel limited?  Is there a reason why hips seem to get weaker as we age?  In this session, we will explore yoga therapeutic techniques that will help us to evaluate hip mobility and begin to help our students to get stronger! Learn about the relationship of the hip to the ankle and trunk, including a brief anatomical review.  Learn why traditional standing poses may not be the best place to start!
