Description: Restorative Yoga, the yoga of non-doing, is a core practice underlying the very essence of yoga. Even those with an active yoga practice will benefit from the inner peace and deep release of Restorative Yoga. It is a practice that speaks directly to the Central Nervous System.

Supported and stabilized by various props, one experiences the yoga postures as profoundly relaxing and deeply rejuvenating, invoking a natural state of healing rest, renewal and equanimity.

In this 24 hour workshop Yoga Teachers will experience a practice each day to feel the effects first hand. We will break down the class sequences and each categories of poses. We will also support each other in partners or small group work in order to see and sense what different individuals might need for comfort as well as sequence and teach a class in groups. Each teacher will be encouraged to step outside the box and get creative to serve their students for the ultimate comfort experience in which they can let go the weight of the world.

Breathe New Life into Your Yoga Classes with Theming • Online (Zoom) Workshop
with Beth Rutty [ 3 Hours ]

Date: Tuesday, May 18, 2021 • 6:30 - 9:30 pm

Investment: $65 (tax in)

Suitable for: any yoga teacher who would like to explore how to theme with ease and spice up class sequencing

Yoga classes can be so challenging to plan and sequence. Either we run out of ideas and repeat the same basic class over and over again or we spend time going to classes and workshops (in person or online) to get ‘new’ ideas.  
To breathe new life into your yoga classes, theming can be a beautiful answer. Theming at its best, is when we take our own experiences, everything from small to big, and look beneath the surface of it for the deeper value of the experience. Perfect opportunities to bring philosophy into your classes in a way that makes sense to our students and how they can relate it to their yoga practice and their life.

Let Beth take you through the steps to bring new life to your classes. 

You will learn:

  • how to cultivate a storyteller’s eyesight - sometimes seeing the mundane as sublime

  • how to share an experience in a brief and powerful way

  • how to take that experience - no matter how small or big and find a ‘golden nugget’ to build a class on

  • how to sequence with your theme in mind

  • how to thread the theme through the whole class (not just use it at the beginning and end)

Join Beth for this thought-provoking workshop and see how a theme can open up a whole new world of teaching for you and whole new experience for your students.
