MarkHeadshotJW13Cropped5x4.jpg

Mark Stephens kommt zurück! Der bekannte Autor, Yogalehrer und Ausbildungsleiter aus Kalifornien unterrichtet ein volles Wochenende (Donnerstag-Sonntag) bei uns.

Perfekt geeignet für Yogalehrer und alle, die ihr Yogawissen erweitern und vertiefen wollen! Alle Klassen werden in (gut verständlichem) Englisch abgehalten.

Info für Yogalehrer: das Wochenende ist als Weiterbildung durch Yoga Alliance anerkannt (in Summe 30 Kontaktstunden)!
 

Programm

Das Programm ist auf zwei große Themenblöcke aufgeteilt:

  1. Donnerstag und Freitag widmen wir uns Anatomie, Asana, Ausrichtung und Hands-On.
  2. Samstag und Sonntag stehen im Zeichen von Sequenzierung, d.h. wie man Klassen aufbaut, eine eigene Praxis entwickelt und wie man mit Verletzungen umgeht.

Das Programm ist aufbauend und es empfiehlt sich der Besuch von zwei Tagen hintereinander, z.B. Do + Fr oder Sa + So - optimalerweise natürlich alle 4 Tage, wenn möglich.
 

Donnerstag:

8:30-10:00 Klasse

10:30-13:30 Workshop 1: Asana, Alignment & Hands-On - Principles and Techniques, Standing Asanas I
Detailed exploration of the major standing poses. After close study of Mountain Pose (Tadasana), the foundational asana for all other standing poses, we look in detail at primary standing poses. With each pose, we step into the Yoga Lab to learn how to look at, see, understand, and relate in a meaningful way with effective verbal and hands–on cues to students who exhibit different challenges and tendencies in that particular pose. Also covers how and from what vantage point to best observe and demonstrate, helpful modifications and use of props, and variations for students who can go farther.

13:30-15:00 Pause

15:00-18:00 Workshop 2: Asana, Alignment & Hands-On - Standing Asanas II
 

Freitag:

8:30-10:00 Klasse

10:30-13:30 Workshop 3: Asana, Alignment & Hands-On - Backbends & Twists
Detailed breakdown of fundamental backbends as well as seated and supine twisting poses. These two families are covered together because twists offer the essential counterposes to a sustained backbend practice. With each pose, we step into the Yoga Lab to learn how to look at, see, understand, and relate in a meaningful way with effective verbal and hands–on cues to students who exhibit different challenges and tendencies in that particular pose. Covers benefits, risks and contraindications, alignment principles and energetic actions. Also covers how and from what vantage point to best observe and demonstrate, helpful modifications and use of props, and variations for students who can go farther.

13:30-15:00 Pause

15:00-18:00 Workshop 4: Asana, Alignment & Hands-On - Inversions
Arm balances simultaneously require and help us to develop balance between strength and flexibility, focused awareness and open mindedness, and effort and ease. We will look closely at the basic elements of Adho Mukha Svanasana (Handstand) and Pincha Mayurasana (Forearm Balance). We will also look at specific wrist and shoulder therapies to better sustain these practices. Along the way we will practice being present to the whole experience of the practice, consciously connecting the breath and bodymind moment by conscious moment.
 

Samstag:

8:30-10:00 Klasse

10:30-13:30 Workshop 5: SEQUENCING (Beschreibung für alle 4 Workshops, Sa + So)

1. How to create transformative yoga classes
This workshop builds on prior learning about all the families of poses (standing poses, backbends, inversions, etc.). Here we focus on how to design complete classes based on the informed ordering of poses. The basic question we address is, “why this pose before or after that pose?” Rather than random or excessively creative sequencing, this workshop is based on how the body works and how to make the practice of asanas as safe, accessible, yet as deep as possible. Includes a two-hour lecture on the essential principles of sequencing and in-depth presentations on how to link poses within and between families of poses. 

2. How to develop a personal practice
A personal yoga practice at home or while travelling is a beautiful addition to visiting studio class. Yet if you have not completed a yoga teacher training you might not know how to create sequences for yourself.

3. Working with injuries
Yoga teachers commonly encounter injuries and other special conditions in their students. ACL repairs, strained medial collateral ligaments, carpal tunnel syndrome, rotator cuff strain or weakness, various spinal conditions such as lordosis, kyphosis, scoliosis and spondalolysthesis, recent ankle sprains and strained hamstrings are just some of the conditions that teachers are likely to find in practically every class. In this workshop, we will start with the perspective embedded in the Chinese character for "crisis," which has the dual meaning of "danger" and "opportunity." We will learn how to work with a variety of student challenges, exploring how to turn them into opportunities for deepening the overall practice. We will look closely at specific accommodations for different injuries and challenges, including alternative alignment, energetic actions, use of props, verbal cues and hands-on adjustments. Close examination of how to craft individualized therapeutic practices that support physical therapy protocols and various alternative healing modalities.

4. Tricky Transitions: Alignment and Energetic Actions in Flowing Asana Sequences
Most asana instruction focuses on asana qua asana, with most attention given to alignment and energetic actions in separate asanas. Yet how we establish these qualities in each asana is largely determined by how we get there. In this workshop we will look closely on risky transitions, what to consider and when to avoid them.
