This workshop will focus on returning to the roots of Kripalu Yoga. Spotlighting the yoga teacher’s ability to guide class experiences that help to cultivate inner wisdom and self-trust, rather than command performances. We will explore the potential for yoga to heal body and soul, as well as to cause harm if one ignores the body’s messages. Basic anatomy will explore strengths and weaknesses and address ways to modify postures based on multi-level, multi-body-type class participation. The importance of language used to lead classes and encourage continuous exploration will be emphasized. Finally, we will explore how our tradition is grounded in compassion and can carry us to higher ground in the advertising of our yoga business.
