Backbends: Update your Asana Master Class Workshop

Saturday, February 17, 2018 – 2:45 PM – 6:00 PM

Facilitated by: Emily Arnold LMT/RYT500, and Sat Puran E-RYT500, CYT

 3.25 hours Yoga Alliance CEUs

Backbends are warming, stimulating and inspire confidence. They stimulate the central nervous system, bringing fresh energy and enthusiasm, as well as the digestive organs, helping the body detoxify the “ama”, or undigested matter, that, according to Ayurveda, is the root of most illnesses. Backbends also counteract the effects of “slouch pose,” a postural result of our living in a technological society where many people spend much of the day sitting in chairs and cars, and they can be the perfect antidote to the Seasonal Affective Disorder many folks experience because of the gray days of winter in central Ohio.

These benefits can only be fully experienced if these poses are approached with patience and compassion. When the Cobra lifts her head out from the top of the basket, it may seem as if that is where the movement is initiated. However, the movement starts at the tail as she begins to unwind, sending her Shakti power up until her heads lifts above the rim of the basket. So is it true with backbends. The backbend begins in the core, at the base of the pelvis, not in the ribs or head.

In this workshop, offering an attitude of joy, enthusiasm and compassion, we will explore the energy and physical movement of “bending over backwards.” Come open your heart in a safe and loving community. Hope to see you there.

The cost of the workshop is $60.00, $55.00 for Samyoga graduates and students. Please share the word about this opportunity and hope to see you there.

Backbends: Update your Asana Master Class




Art of Assisting – Adding to the Individual Session Protocol

Sunday, March 18, 2018 – 2:30 pm – 6:00 pm

Facilitated by: Emily Arnold LMT/RYT500, and Sat Puran E-RYT500, CYT
Location: EQUIVITA, 1510 Hess St, Columbus, OH 43212

 2.5 hours Yoga Alliance CEUs

Come celebrate spring with this expansive workshop on the Art of Assisting – Adding to the Individual Session Protocol. This workshop is held on Sunday, March 18, 2018 from 2:30-6pm at Equivita. This exciting opportunity is only available to past IYT/SSS/SYI graduates who have been trained in the basics of a hands on individual session.

In this workshop you will be adding to your toolbox of assists for students and clients. The individual session protocol of Samyoga Institute seeks to provide a strong foundation for individual yoga therapy sessions that may be facilitated (hands on) or guided (hands off). For some clients, physical touch may be unwelcome with words empowering the student. For others, physical touch may bring about the greatest healing. It is important, as the facilitator, there is comfort in both. Most of the tools taught can be facilitated or guided. Specific techniques for specific body parts and conditions will be experienced. We will bring in volunteers so everyone has the opportunity to have a true hands on learning experience.

To register by check, please email patty@sam.yoga and mail your payment made payable to Samyoga Institute and mailed to:
