Developing and Sustaining a Personal Practice on Zoom

Sunday, October 25, with Monica Voss
2:00pm-4:30pm EDT, $50, on Zoom

Practising yoga at home can be a refuge and a way of reconnecting to ourselves. In this workshop we will design themes for home practice, explore sequences of yoga postures, the rationale behind them and our personal responses to them. We will discuss the challenges and the joys of our time alone with yoga. Teachers and interested students of yoga are welcome to attend.

Empowering the Aging Body on Zoom

Sunday, November 1, with Monica Voss and Tama Soble
Sunday, 10:30am-5:00pm, $175, on Zoom

As the population ages, teachers must inform themselves about natural changes in the body as well as common conditions such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Changes in outlook also occur in older students as they contemplate their lives and goals. Through practice, discussion and analysis, we will explore these and other issues of aging and create intelligent and supportive options in order to instruct older students holistically with energy, knowledge and empathy.

Empowering the Aging Body is intended for certified and non-certified yoga and meditation teachers, teachers-in-training, health professionals, therapists, social workers and interested students of yoga. CEU’s awarded through Yoga Alliance.
