Lets Talk About Fascia – A Workshop Series (included in 300 hr Teacher Training)

with Leah McKellop

First Course: Tuesday, Jan 26th, 5:30 – 7:30 pm EST

Second Course: Saturday, Jan 30th, 1:00 – 4:30 pm EST

 

 

At its core, our anatomy is an interconnected fluid chain of communication. Our various parts are always in dialogue, doing their best to work towards balance and efficiency. A beautiful demonstration of this concept is fascia. It is an unending matrix of connective tissue that connects each of our individual parts into one unified whole. This fascinating material appears throughout our bodies, under our skin and encasing muscles, organs and bones. It affects our posture, the way we move and even how we perceive the world around us. In this class we will explore this “organ of form”, learning to work with it to enhance our practices and provide fascia friendly teaching styles.

Course Dates / Times:

This workshop is broken into (2) two courses within the same week span, by registering here you will be signing up for both courses.

  • First Course: Tuesday 1/26/21 @ 6:00 – 8:00 pm EST
  • Second Course: Saturday 1/30/21 @ 1:00 – 4:30 pm EST

About Leah:

Leah McKellop is a long time yoga lover and an anatomy enthusiast. She spends her days working as a Rolfer, a form of bodywork that focuses primarily on balancing connective tissue and fascia. It is an honor for her to bring her fascination of the body to the Five Point Yoga community.

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
