August 1-4, 2013
Join Leeann Carey at the following workshops:
Pre-conference event: Yapana Yoga: Seeing is Teaching (Thurs, August 1; 5:30pm - 9pm)
Are your yoga students ever challenged in a yoga pose, but you're not quite sure how to best help them? This workshop will teach you how to better see your students. We will design and test safe and logical yoga pose modifications. Successful modifications encourage therapeutic outcomes that either wake up dull areas of the body or calm down overworked ones. Seeing your students as they are will take your teaching skills to the next level while meeting individual needs to restore balance and prevent injuries. The workshop will include:
Things to bring: Your misalignments and imbalances, dynamic or restorative poses that present a challenge, and a willingness to trust, follow and create therapeutic modifications through your curiosity. A journal and pen for note-taking and a camera for documenting creative pose modifications.
Friday 8/2/13 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Leeann Carey Yoga: Yapana™ Yoga 101 – Leeann Carey
A Yapana practice includes the best parts of being on the mat: Vinyasa to build heat, static poses to strengthen and lengthen, and passive poses with support to relax your body/mind and prepare for a luxurious final relaxation. All of this, designed around a thematic class that includes learning a key positioning skill useful in all practice styles and sport, and supports a pose that the class sequence builds to. If you like to learn while getting your yoga on, this class is for you.
Saturday 8/3/13 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. Leeann Carey Yoga: Yapana™ Slow Flow – Leeann Carey
Why rush? Take your time, smooth your breath, execute safe alignment and flow into your rhythm. These are the essential elements of a satisfying Slow Flow yoga class. Add Yapana's intelligent and seamless sequencing and you've got a seriously satisfying yoga experience. See you on the mat!
Saturday 8/3/13 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Leeann Carey Yoga: Yapana™ Low Down on Down Dog – Leeann Carey
DISCLAIMER: Don't worry! We won't be practicing Dog Pose for two hours! Downward Facing Dog Pose is taught in almost every yoga class, but it's not always taught in detail in every class. It is an essential pose, and one of the first poses we learn. It teaches how to integrate useful skills into so many other poses -- some far more complicated. Deconstructing "Dog" will connect the dots in many other poses. Here's your opportunity to dig into this unique pose and bring your practice to a new level of understanding and enjoyment.
Sunday 8/4/13 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Leeann Carey Yoga: Yapana™ Flexor Fun – Leeann Carey
Are you a runner, cyclist or walker? Does your job require you to sit or stand most of the time? Short or long held hip flexors prevent you from getting the most out of your workout and from maintaining a healthy posture. You'll learn safe, simple and super unique ways to lengthen your hip flexors using help with simple yoga props and creative twists on yoga poses. Flexor Fun teaches you how to enhance your workout, yoga mat performance, daily functionality and prevent injuries.
