Yoga is a life long connection that can be practiced with each breath through mindfulness and sustainable movements. This learning module is a celebration of the aging process, which starts in your 20’s!  Because our bodies are always changing, awareness is paramount in the aging and healing process. We will restore the view of aging as a challenge, the importance of our relationship to our bodies, and tap into the wisdom gained from our body through time.  Redefine the aging process by empowering yourself with options, awareness and grace.

 

Content includes:

 ~   anatomy and physiology of aging   ~   meditation   ~   restorative, gentle and chair yoga 

~   methods for nurturing yourself   ~   coping with pain   ~   self massage       

~  developing a sustainable home practice  ~  learning and teaching how to successfully modify yoga poses 

The hours count towards continuing education credits (CEU’s) and the Blue Sun Yoga 300-hour Teacher Training Program. (**For the 300 hour program additional contact hours (workshops and classes) and homework apply, to be scheduled independently.)    

Days can be attended individually if space permits.  Just ask!

 This module is a yoga and meditation retreat experience focusing on reflection, connection, fellowship, networking, collaboration and healing.  Yoga invites us not to become something or someone else, but to connect more fully to ourselves.  This retreat addresses how we can skillfully navigate comtempory yoga while staying true to ourselves by unifying our dharma and authentic teachings.  Self actualized beings must be what they can be.  This is a reflective experience designed to hold space and support you in getting back to your center, refining your intentions of practice and teaching, and moving forward with clearer vision.   Practice for your students, teach for yourself.

Adversity and challenge are a given in life; all of us experience illness, loss, trauma, vulnerability, shame, sadness, pain, as well as parenting and relationship struggles.  While falling down is part of life, getting back up is living!  Resilience is the ability to bounce back after life's inevitable challenges and connecting with, and remembering the backdrop of joy that always resides.  Research in neuroscience demonstrates that resilience skills can be taught and learned.  Please join us for these informative learning and experiential workshops where you will learn about, and practice, various elements of resilience in order to help yourself and others survive and thrive during adversity.  This module has 3 main components of study, listed below.

 

 

Coping with Pain: This segment will focus on various meditation techniques and yoga practices with relationship to working with chronic pain.  Discussions will include the Brain Pain Matrix, common chronic pain conditions, and pain processing.  Enjoy learning meditation practices, gentle yoga, restorative yoga and yoga nidra to support forgiveness and loving kindness of the body and mind. 

Emotional Connection:  Session II will focus on understanding emotional states (anxiety, depression, OCD, compulsive thinking, addictions, PTSD, sexual trauma, Early Attachment Theory, shame, freeze, collapse, grief and loss) and the impact of therapeutic yoga as well as the neuroscience that supports meditation and mindfulness as healing practices.  Learn how yoga and mindfulness can create distance from being fused with thoughts and emotions by practicing self acceptance, letting go, self compassion, loving kindness and forgiveness on and off our mats.

 

Post Traumatic Growth:  This segment will focus on learning and practicing skills of mindfulness, resilience, post traumatic growth, listening and radical self acceptance.  We will explore how to train your brain from conditioned knee jerk responses to higher-level choices as well as understanding the neuroscience behind how mindfulness and meditation de-stressing practices create resilience.
