This workshop combines the full course content of Levels I and II in a week-long intensive with Matthew Sanford and Mind Body Solutions faculty. This week of experiential learning explores how adapting yoga is more than simply learning to modify the asana. It is a journey of self-discovery.
Based on the universal principles of yoga, our training emphasizes teaching the experience of poses rather than their physical performance. Discover how inward awareness, reference and adjustments, and use of props and alignment opens the subtlety of the mind-body relationship. Then, using more complex poses such as inversions, back bends, and twists, learn how to teach activation through the inner body without overt muscular movement. The week’s learning is enhanced by the presence of Mind Body Solutions adaptive yoga students throughout the course.
