Led by: Tara Glazier

Thematic Integration Saturday April 15, 2-5pm Have you ever desired to bring your yoga class to the next level by integrating philosophical, qualitative, poetic, Ayurvedic, or deeper life lessons into class? As yoga teachers, we all know there is a fine line where a yoga class can easily sound like a self help book or a cheesy quote book. We have all been there. At the same time, we have all taught the class that somehow feels empty or void of heart / emotion. 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.
