This is a 2 day workshop on the mechanics behind yoga props. This workshop has two parts.
This workshop takes place on Saturday 2/16/19 and Sunday 2/17/19 from 9:30am-5:00pm and Sunday from 9:30am-5:00pm.
This class is a required part of the 300 hour Certification Program. It may also be taken by anyone wanting to learn more about how to integrate props and tools into their yoga practice.
About this course:
It is common to see people using many sorts of yoga props like blocks, straps, bolsters, and blankets in the practice of yoga.
This 2 day workshop addresses the mechanics behind common yoga props. Learn to define when and why using various types of resistance equipment might be necessary for specific people and specific goals.
Students will be exploring how to understand force, how to manipulate it, and why it is the primary stimulant in the practice of Hatha Yoga.
The class will explore why adding external forces to the already challenging internal resistance created in your Yoga practice challenges the body in new ways.
Learn the importance of owning and understanding the mechanics behind our body’s natural force producers, muscle, before we add any outside challenges.
As the weekend progresses, we will be exploring the mechanics of non-traditional yoga props like resistance bands and tubes, hand weights, weighted bars. We will also work with the more common yoga props like straps and blocks, as well as Pilates rings and mini balls.
This 2 day workshop will include classroom time and studio time. Students will gain hands on experience with the concepts presented in this course.
