WORKSHOP SERIES: Yoga for Athletes

with Kalen Lee Scholz

Sundays, April 11th – May 2nd, 3:00 – 4:o0 p EST

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Join Kalen online or in-person for this 4-week series of yoga classes designed specifically for people who have spent a lot of time exercising and training in the athletic world. This series is perfect for anyone who is “strong but tight”, who wants to make stretching and recovery more of a priority, thinks they are not flexible enough for yoga, or thinks yoga is “not enough of a workout”. Kalen, with 20 years of athletic experience from competing and coaching sprint kayaking to training and racing in marathons, cycling races, and long-distance triathlons, will lead you through sequences with the specific goals of increasing flexibility, offering some accessible challenges, and working towards recovery and openness in deep and restorative stretches. At the end of the series you will have a more profound awareness of your body as well as some techniques for calming down the mind that will certainly be useful in future athletic endeavors (and in life in general!) All experience levels are welcome.

The Heart of Ethics Workshop (Online)

The Heart of Ethics (online)

With Dr. Cedar Barstow, M. Ed., D.P.I., Certified Hakomi Trainer, and Julia Corley, LCHMCA, NCC, SEP, Certified Hakomi Teacher.

April 9-10, 2021
11 a.m – 3 p.m. EST

$185 early bird by March 1, $225 thereafter

**We have limited sliding scale spaces available upon request**

7 CE’s available through *NBCC and NCBTMB
(*NBCC offers core hours for GA LPCs & related hours for GA LCSW & LMFTs)

Right use of power and influence is at the very heart of ethics. Developed by Hakomi Therapist and Trainer Dr. Cedar Barstow, the Right Use of Power approach focuses on the relational dynamics that bring ethics to life. Engaging both heart and mind, core concepts include grounding in a felt sense of both sides of the power differential, exploration of power parameters and under- and over-uses of power, and working with practical processes for resolving relationship difficulties. This workshop will be highly experiential, with focus on awareness, skill, and pro-activity.

Power is simply the ability to have an effect, or to have influence – but the right use of this influence is both simple and complex. Personally and in positions of trust, the right use of power is the use of power to accomplish goals; prevent, heal, and repair harm; and to promote well-being for all.

The power spiral model is at the heart of Right Use of Power. Increasing skillfulness is learned through a spiraling process of gaining understanding and awareness at higher and higher levels of complexity, inclusivity, and transcendence. As you gain the knowledge and skills you need to use your power wisely, you’ll explore and engage with these four dimensions of the spiral:

Be informed: Informed Use of Power
Be compassionate: Conscious Use of Power
Be connected: Caring Use of Power
Be skillful: Skillful Use of Power

Right Use of Power is a dynamic way to explore issues of ethics and power, both personal and professional. This study can be profoundly restorative and empowering. This approach brings heart and soul to ethics, and builds sensitivity and awareness to the use of power and influence.

“Ayurveda, Chakra, & Subtle Prana Bodies” 2-Part Workshop

with Dr. Elise Faust

Two Saturdays, May 15th & June 12th, 1:00 – 4:30 pm EST

“Ayurveda is the science, art, awareness and practice of learning who we are, how we are made up, and ways of living appropriately so that we become more powerful versions of ourselves.

Join me for a 2 part workshop series that will delve more deeply into the subtle layers of our bodies….our subtle bodies….

We will learn and practice accessing a deeper connection to the direction and flow of the five subtle bodies of Prana.
We will learn and reconnect to the 7 major chakra centers.

We will wed these two (pranic subtle bodies and chakra centers) in ways that empower the expression of our doshas…Vata, Pitta, and Kapha

First day of workshop will focus on learning and understanding, as well as practices.

You will design and take away your individual practices, incorporating them into your daily life.

Second day of workshop, we will revisit and share how they worked within you, your responses, etc.

We will delve a little more deeply into a personal relationship with the chakra system and how we can use it from an Ayurvedic perspective.

I look forward to sharing knowledge, ideas, and experience with you!”

The Language of Touch — A Workshop on Hands-On Assists 

with Anne Ethier

Saturday, September 25th, 1:00 – 4:30 pm EST

 

There is an art and a science to hands- on assists in yoga. Touch helps to communicate to the body direction, alignment, and adjustments that verbal cues often do not. Touch can also help assist students to deepen into the ease and calm of their breath, which frees up physical and emotional energy.
This is for teachers and students alike who wish to learn more about alignment and the balance of effort and ease in your yoga practice.

Come prepared to learn:

  • Ethical and responsible use of power as a teacher
  • Healthy alignment for maximum benefit for most bodies
  • Confidence in “reading” bodies, including your own
  • Enhance your ability to honor differences in bodies with an understanding of anatomy and psychology
  • Practical reasons to touch or not in yoga poses
  • The science behind touch
  • Technical and applicable ways to assist another in poses

About The Instructor – Anne Ethier:

Using simple yet profound methods of empathetic and genuine presence, mindful attention, and gentle acceptance, Anne helps students awaken to their growth and healing. Trained as a certified massage therapist, counselor and yoga teacher, Anne teaches anatomy in a practical and easily accessible format. With over 22+ years of experience in the health and fitness industry, Anne brings a unique blend of body oriented counseling, mindfulness, and extensive study in human physiology to the art of yoga.
