Heart Theming - Find Your Own Unique Voice
Limited Capacity seats available

Sharing magical teaching tales and collaborating to create an Anusara yoga class that takes students on a journey into their hearts is purpose of this workshop. This workshop invites teachers to refine their storytelling skills, to mine their story for heart qualities that illustrate yogic wisdom teachings and to discover the Universal principles that will compliment those qualities and allow the student to imbibe these teachings kinesthetically. Finding each person's own unique voice brings an authenticity to your teaching. Like Jazz musicians we will cultivate skills to riff on the theme and keep that theme fresh for each class you teach.

Root of the Body
Limited Capacity seats available

Level 1/2 - The trees are a great pictures how to have strong roots in order to give and receive, to nurish and to connect. To be rooted, it shows the ultimate movement of contraction and expansion, the pulsation of Life. When i talk about roots, i mean also the roots in your own believes and the connection with your own true nature. If ability to ground is missing, we tend to compensate on other areas of the body. How are you roots in your body – the feet, the muladhara Chadra – the first chakra. We will explore on different levels to acknowledge the shape of the body and his ability to communicate through the inner matrix. And we will explore how to connect inside as the outside.

Divine Alignment: Broaden the Bandwidth of Your Personal Shakti
Limited Capacity seats available

Our modern yoga approach does not rely on a guru and the idea of energy transmission from the teacher to the student often gets lost as we emphasize asana and alignment. At the same time, you experience that some teachers transmit the essence of yoga like high speed internet, even if their teaching is technically less skilled. In this workshop, you will discover how increase your bandwidth to the divine and systematically channel shakti, creative live force. You will learn a krama — a series of steps — that you can practice and refine. Your benefit: -Shakti flows through you more freely invigorating you while you teach. -Your students experience a sense of wholeness — purna — and look forward to coming back for more.

Find the Starting Point - Working with Injuries
Limited Capacity seats available

As a certified Rolfer, Yoga Students and Teachers contact me when they run into injuries through their practice. May be they come with a torn muscle, pain or tensions in any area of the body. To start working on the area which is in pain is sometimes not the best solution. How to find a starting point to work with Asanas or Breath to heal the affected part of the body and prevent the Person to stay in a protective posture, which can cause further problems – especially during Asana practice. The workshop is designed to start looking from a different point of view to see various possibilities to support Yoga students with injuries.

Anusara yoga e l'arte dello storytelling / Anusara Theme and the Art of Storytelling (Taught in Italian)
Limited Capacity filling up

In questa lezione scopriremo come le tecniche dello storytelling, o arte del racconto, permettano di trasmettere qualsiasi insegnamento teorico attraverso un linguaggio universale in grado di parlare contemporaneamente al corpo, alla mente e al cuore di tutte le persone. Un linguaggio che, quindi, è in grado di creare una sintesi tra karma, bhakti e jnana yoga. Vedremo anche come diverse tecniche utilizzate dallo storytelling presentino interessanti analogie con i principi di allineamento universali di Anusara yoga.

Creating A Pranayama Practice
Limited Capacity seats available

The benefits of having a pranayama practice, combined or separate from asana practice are many. Learning to work more with your breath and prana will give you a kind of lightness and another quality in your asana practice. Pranayama also requires our full attention and can offer us a similar deep inner state such as in meditation. In this class we will learn how to prepare our bodies properly for pranayama by using asana and specific stretching exercises to create space in the chest and torso. We will take time to practice and explore the full yogic breath, and look in detail several techniques such as Viloma, Kapalaphati, Samavritti and Nadi sodhana pranayama. At the end we will learn and practice some combinations of short and longer pranayama sequences which we can do at home every day. This class is suitable for students and teachers who are more experienced with pranayama and for students with little or no experience at all.
