Yapana® Yoga Therapy: BEING Poses
The beauty of learning Yapana® Yoga Therapy is knowing how to bring the pose to the student, not the student to the pose. In this workshop, we will look at a series of restorative “BEING” poses that may be practiced in a variety of ways to meet individual needs. We will strategically place yoga props in order to support the student where he/she is. This way of teaching is not only satisfying to the student, but harnesses the teaching skill of seeing your students as they are, not as you think they should be.
Open to students and teachers.
Yapana® Yoga Master Class:
Enjoy a highly satisfying experience on the mat with notably the most experienced yoga instructor, yoga teacher trainer, and influential yoga person in the South Bay, Leeann Carey, founder of Yapana® Yoga Therapy. The class includes a specific vinyasa sequence that introduces a Key Positioning Skill (KPS). The KPS will be well-practiced in heat-building poses with support that lead to a “Queen” pose. You’ll wind down with fully supported restorative poses and a Savasana that will leave you feeling super relaxed, renewed, and refreshed. Get “Yapanized”!
Yapana® (yaa-pa-na, like ahh-sa-na), an Ancient Sanskrit Word Meaning the Support and Extension of Life.
