A Foundational Series on Inversions w/ Tim Kelleher3 Wednesdays: 9/30, 10/7, 10/14, 6:30-8p $90
Strength, Structure and Balance
Take time this fall to turn your practice quite literally on its head. Join Tim Kelleher for a three-week series in which he will help you build confidence in your ability to use your hands as your feet. You will explore headstand, handstand, and forearm stand using the following principals:
- Build the strength
- Understand the structure
- Refine the balance
With smart sequencing, props, drills, partner work, and the wall - you will identify different techniques to employ in make inverting a regular part of your asana practice. As the program progresses you will explore methods of transitioning in and out of inversions in your regular flow classes, and using your newfound levity to add grace to all of your transitions - on and off the mat. Limited to 20 yogis—expect some asana homework and take home materials.
The Seat of A Teacher: Cont.Ed. w/ Ame WrenSelect Fridays: Oct 23rd, 2015 - Apr 1st, 2016
As anyone who has been through a 200-hr program knows, much of what you learn doesn't get fully digested. We study, we pay attention and then despite our best efforts, 6 months later we find ourselves grasping for words to explain internal rotation or the concept of santosha. This 6-month program is designed for those who can relate. Through group and individual study, you will receive a thorough review of the basic concepts of yoga (limbs---both esoteric and anatomical), how to weave a class effectively, living like a yoga teacher and ways to have an impact (moving from instructor to teacher). Because much of what you learn is best digested through experiential learning, there will also be some group teaching exercises and opportunities for feedback.
Topics covered will include but not be limited to:
- Asana alignment & architecture
- Learning to see and touch your students*
- Speaking & sequencing well
- Differentiating yourself from the pack
- Principles and maintenance of svadhyaya (self-study)
A payment plan is available upon request: $500 deposit and $200 Nov 15th, Dec 15th, Jan 15th.
Fridays from 10am-630pm

This program is complimentary to Ame's popular Learning to See program and an excellent way to warm up for the Boston Yoga School 500-hr program (beginning fall 2016).
