A Yoga Teachers’ Weekend with Monica Voss, Tama Soble, Shari Stein and Della Croteau
Saturday October 26 – Sunday, October 27
The weekend will be devoted to increasing your understanding of what older students want from a yoga practice and your knowledge of specific medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and back pain. You will learn to adapt traditional yoga poses, relaxation and breathing techniques to accommodate a broader range of physical abilities in your classes and help students, especially older men and women, calm, sustain, befriend, energize and appreciate their bodies.
Della Croteau has been practising yoga for over 20 years. Regular practice has allowed her to see not only the physical benefits of yoga, but also to experience stress relief and relaxation, as well as a quieter more centered state of mind. Della is especially interested in promoting health, wellbeing and mobility for healthy aging.
Tama Soble began practising yoga in 1984 with Esther Myers and Monica Voss. Tama co-owns and teaches classes and teacher training at Esther Myers Yoga Studio. She leads workshops and retreats in Ontario, the U.S., and Italy.
Shari Stein is a yoga teacher trained at the Esther Myers Yoga Studio. She has also been a psychiatric social worker, lawyer, arbitrator and mediator. Shari has researched and addressed concerns about osteoporosis in her own bones. She is passionate about aging intelligently and assisting others of any age in recruiting yoga as a tool to promote health.
Monica Voss has been studying yoga for 40 years and teaching since 1981. In addition to co-owning and teaching at Esther Myers Yoga Studio in Toronto, Monica conducts workshops, retreats and teacher training internationally.
