Sunday Workshop and Open House
“Especially while practicing challenging poses, remember the phrase ‘even distribution of the force’.”
I’ve heard several people remark recently that they are interested in the immersive nature of our Advanced Studies/Teacher Training Program, but that they somehow don’t feel qualified to participate because of having no real interest in becoming a yoga teacher. And so now I feel compelled to issue another public proclamation that the ASTT course is primarily about deepening one’s study of and appreciation for yoga. Trust me, I had absolutely no intention of ever becoming a yoga teacher when I applied to Piedmont Yoga Studio’s Advanced Studies Program way back in 2001. I just knew that I loved yoga and was fascinated by it. And it seemed to me at the time that taking a more formalized course in yoga would help me to understand its nuances and history in a more thorough way than public classes could ever possibly provide. If any of that resonates with you, then I would like to invite you to an Open House this Sunday, August 12 from 2:30-3:30pm. Feel free to ask any questions about the program, voice any concerns, inquire about its format, or just pick my brain as to why I feel so passionate about offering this transformative, life-changing experience. And for anyone reading this who has been on the fence about ASTT, just know that this will most likely be the last time it runs until 2020. Factor that into your decision and remember the profundity and power of Patanjali’s opening line in the Yoga Sutra, “Now, begins the teaching of yoga.”
In other news, remember that Emilia Aguinaga is offering another fabulous Yamuna Body Rolling workshop this Sunday from 11:30am-1:30pm. Titled TMJ Relief, this class will teach you surefire techniques for breaking the misalignment patterns that cause excess tension in the jaw. Space is limited to only 8 participants due to the specialized and individualized nature of the workshop.
Hope to see you in class soon!
