  • CE Workshop | The Myth of Yoga and Flexibility Member Event Online

    Yogi Aaron
    MAR 14 2023
    12:00pm–1:00pm ET
    As yoga teachers, an assumption we often hear from non-practitioners is that they are not “flexible enough” for yoga; in reality, placing too much emphasis on stretching may actually be harming our students in the long run. Join Yogi Aaron, creator of AYAMA (Applied Yoga Anatomy + Muscle Activation™️), as he disputes the flexibility myth and explains why we should place focus on activating and strengthening muscles instead. Come ready to gain a new perspective on stretching, flexibility, and yoga that will transform how you teach and practice.

    In this workshop you will learn:

    · How stretching disconnects the body and mind, weakens the muscles, and causes misalignment, instability, and chronic pain
    · A popular yoga pose you may want to avoid teaching, and why
    · A simple muscle activation practice for you and your students to instantly feel stronger and more stable in the body

  • CE Workshop | Pranayama and Self-Care: The Power of Breathing Member Event Online

    Deepali Saxena
    MAR 28 2023
    9:45pm–10:45pm ET
    Pranayama is a foundation of yoga, aimed at building connection between the breath, mind, body, and soul. When we focus on the breath, we are observing how our Prana—or energy—flows through us, perhaps with the aim of invigorating, relaxing, or healing the self. Join us for a discussion and self-exploration of the give-and-take of our energy, and the self-care that comes from Pranayama.

    In this webinar, you will learn:

    · A refresher on the concept of Prana and Pranayama
    · How to use the breath as a tool to master your body and mind
    · The physiological aspects of Pranayama
