Continuing Education

The art of the narrative… going beyond the simple theme structure to create an interwoven fabric of asana, myth or story, all encoded into principles in the physical body. Embedding myth and story into an asana class is a wonderful way to open the heart and the mind. Thematic Integration is a skill that empowers the teacher to guide the students into their “hearts” while maintaining the physical component of the asana class. By identifying what the “purpose” of our class is, we can more easily integrate theme material without it coming from left field. In this 3 hour workshop, we will learn how to relate the physical experience we are offering (by either the sequence, specific poses, specific anatomy) to what we want to say on a deeper level. Leave the random behind and learn “maps” and templates to guide you and your the students you teach into a more integrated heart, mind, body experience. Offering our students the power of myth and story cultivates another aspect of the Yoga and another aspect of themselves. With myth, we become new characters now see ourselves through metaphor. Learn: How to use iconography effectively How to “code” mythological principles onto the body Tools for timing and how/ when to “tell” the story Templates for narrative storytelling Please bring: a book, text, teaching, etc you are working with so that you may use in the exercises done. $65, $50 for alumni
