Triad Yoga 300hr Teacher Training Certification Workshops

Triad Yoga continues to graduate its students from the 300hr Teacher Training Certification Program. As a requirement, the students need to prepare and teach a workshop. The next scheduled workshops, West Market Street Studio are:

Saturday, August 23rd, 10:00AM - 11:30AM - Practicing Safe, Easy and Comfortable Forward Bends with Jim Carson

Preparation for forward bending poses is essential to guarantee safety and to avoid injuries.  Thus, moving into forward bends with proper alignment and preparing hamstrings and pelvis is essential.  When practiced safely, forward bends are healing and can help release the spine and lower back.  They also calm the nervous system, and can even reduce stress, anxiety, depression and fatigue.  The emphasis of this workshop will be on safely exploring hip flexion, lengthening of the hamstring muscles, and proper spinal alignment.  Utilizing breathing with moving into the forward bending poses, we can move safely, with ease and comfort!

This workshop is appropriate for Level 2 and above.

Workshops cost - $5.00.  Space is limited, West Market Street Studio.

Saturday, August 23rd, 1:00PM - 2:30PM - Don't "Shoo" the Messenger Balance the Psoas with Sheila Wenzel ~ Waitlisted

Maintaining balance in our lives can be challenging, presenting us with less than a welcoming response of fear that we will never get it all done.  Well, guess what?  A wise Zen teacher said "there is no right, there is no wrong, and you will never get it all done."

Aadil Palkhivala reminds us, "tension in the Psoas is caused by our subconscious thoughts reminding us that we are not in connection with our Spirit."

The psoas is a messenger tightly bound to our fear and stress response.  Let's explore ways to release, strengthen and bring balance and wholeness to this vital muscle group.

This workshop is appropriate for Level 2 and above ~ no acute injuries please.

Workshop cost $5.00.  Space is limited, West Market Street Studio.
