Living and being with our bodies is a tall order. Sitting back and witnessing our experience takes time and practice. Today’s body is hurried, overworked, under exercised, stressed and depleted. When exercise does occur, it is quick, vigorous and sweat producing. We each have an opportunity to develop a relationship with our body through movement, breath and meditation that is unique. This Gentle Yoga Teacher Training shows us another way to connect with ourselves, through the subtle and the quiet. We do this by learning to listen, slowing down and paying attention. Gentle yoga is a the bridge between moving slowly and staying still. This program will look at various ways to teach Gentle Yoga to a wide variety of populations. We will cover practices for more able-bodied students, chair practices and floor practices of exploration. Pranayama and meditation will also be discussed.
