Saturday, January 19, 2019

3 hours for Yoga Alliance CEU’s

Time: 2:30 – 5:30pm (Samyoga Institute Alumni Potluck to follow 6-7:30pm)

In today’s society, a person’s joints are being stressed more than ever. A popular belief in our culture is that joint issues “just happen” with age, but in reality, a person of any age can experience joint problems, and the truth is, as we age, we don’t have to suffer joint problems.

In this workshop we aim to support teachers in the integration of yoga and ayurveda for joint health by addressing the anatomy and mechanics of hips, knees and shoulders as well as examining the biomechanics of daily life. Participants will also explore the connection between the koshas and joints and discuss considerations that can be made in the case of joint replacements.

Investment: $55 ($50 for Samyoga Alumni)

Restorative Yoga Workshop

Instructors:  Connie Phillips (E-RYT500) and Sat Puran (E-RYT500, CYT and Ayurvedic Practitioner) are offering this Master Class workshop on teaching and experiencing restorative yoga.

Saturday, February 16, 2019

3 hours for Yoga Alliance CEU’s 

Location:  Equivita, 1510 Hess Street, Columbus, Ohio 43212

Time: 2:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Restorative yoga is a deeply healing practice in which the body is fully supported by a variety of props. When the body can fully relax, the mind can begin to quiet as well. During this deep state of relaxation, tension is released, allowing the toxins that may have become stored-up due to physical and energetic blockages to be discharged. Restorative poses are effective for both acute and chronic conditions, offering benefits to the body and mind. According to Judith Lasater, “Restorative Yoga calms the nervous system, brings deep relaxation and alleviates health problems caused or worsened by stress.”

In this workshop you will learn the principles of restorative yoga, including appropriate sequencing and how to prop each pose. Participants will personally experience a restorative practice to better understand its complexities and healing properties.

Space is limited so that participants can be fully immersed in the restorative yoga experience.

HOW IT WORKS

iRest is an accessible and easy to use meditation protocol that is integrative, as it heals unresolved issues and traumas, and restorative, as it aids practitioners in recognizing their innate wholeness and underlying peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances in life.

Research has shown that iRest effectively supports health and healing across a broad range of populations, including those experiencing PTSD, chronic pain, sleep issues, high stress, depression, and anxiety.

In the Level 1 Training, you will learn:

  • The core principles and practice of iRest meditation.
  • How to use iRest for your personal practice.
  • How to teach and deliver iRest simply, and effectively in group and individual settings.
  • Following the Level 1 Training, you will:
  • Join a global community of practitioners who are teaching iRest in yoga studios, sleep clinics, rehabilitation and healthcare facilities, hospitals, hospice, prisons, universities, schools, as well as in private practice.
  • Be able to list yourself on the IRI website as an iRest Level 1 Teacher.
  • Be able to access our “Teacher Resources” and our “Teachers Community Network (TCN)” for further personal and professional support.
  • Be recommended by IRI to people seeking iRest teachers in their local area.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to receive a certificate of attendance designating you as an iRest Level 1 Teacher you must arrive on time every day and attend all training sessions.
