Guest Teacher Max Strom: How to Teach & Inspire Beginners

Seminar for Yoga teachers and teachers in training, and beginners to yoga are welcome too. The beginner needs a combination of flowing-movement, safety, education, and inspiration. They also need to learn breathing patterns and to understand why they need to learn to breathe. Leading such a class is often intimidating to teachers leaving them reluctant to teach beginning students at all.

Experience Max Strom’s renowned class for beginners that has been refined over 21 years. It will help you to embrace teaching beginning students with new confidence and knowledge. Bring your mat and writing materials. (Please no recording equipment)

Gentle & Chair Yoga for the Technology Age with Sherry Zak Morris

Computers, cell phones and tablets open up our world to new ideas, fun, education, business and community. However, the dark side of technology is the posture-breaking, static-holding and repetitive motions that can wreak havoc in our physical structures. No age is immune to these side effects of computer use. As Yoga Teachers, we undoubtedly will have students in our classes that are suffering from physical issues directly tied to their computer use. Learning effective Gentle and Chair Yoga poses and sequences to bring relief to the computer worker is a must for Yoga Teachers who teach group classes.

Yoga Teachers and Tech Workers Welcome! Come Learn! REGISTER UNDER WORKSHOPS
