R E S I L I E N C E (the ability to adapt to challenge) - @ OM Yoga Studio - 17th December

Fasica - a 3D web that surrounds every structure within the body and runs the full length of the body, is also dense with receptors. It is now called our 6th sense. When we are more in touch with our bodies and the sensations we feel (interoception), then we can improve our ability to adapt to life’s challenges improving our vagal tone.

In this workshop we will explore how stories, values and beliefs are stored within our fascia, how an adaptable body can lead to an adaptable mind. How neuroplasticity can be improved through yoga and how elements within the yoga practices such as pranayama and chanting can enhance vagal tone.

Come away with tools and techniques you can use in your own self practice to become more aware of how your mind influences your body and your body influences your mind.

Suitable for all levels.

12 till 2 pm.

Creative and Meaningful Sequencing

August 28th - September 1st

In this course you will develop the art of creative and meaningful sequencing to create purposeful and powerful practices for students and for yourself. As a teacher, it is important to not only understand how to sequence a class but the WHY behind it. Students will have a significantly more powerful experience on the mat when they are properly warmed physically, but also have the ability to experience a deeper purpose for their practice from a spiritual and philosophical perspective, when offered in an appropriate way that will give them something to take away and apply to their life off the mat. 50hr towards the 300hr RYT Advanced Training For more information go to Om Yoga Studio.
