Workshops and Retreats

Oct. 12 & 13, 2019 at Juicy Power Yoga: Muscles, Bones and Movement Workshop Series

These workshops are developed from 20 years of practice, 10 years of teaching (with plenty of mistakes along the way!) and intensive training with her teachers. It also includes the privilege of detailed, informative conversations regarding injury prevention with licensed physical therapists. This is a brief culmination of key regions of the body that could use simple, common sense upgrades to keep yoga modern and accessible. We will explore simple, anatomical shifts which create a stronger understanding of your body and allow you to explore challenges (and challenging poses) on a stable platform.

Jan. 23 – 26, 2019: Northwest Yoga Conference

Use Your Words: Hands Off Assisting

Teaching students asana and about their bodies is a delicate balance between tedious and a “safe space” for all students. Not every cue lands exactly how you want in a group setting. While you cannot keep everyone safe in every class, you can teach students how to adjust themselves through simple, creative cues in the flow of class. Learn to guide students with self-adjustments and mindful techniques that create “a-ha’ moments without the need of hands-on assisting. Create an individual experience in a group class of any size filled with plenty of dynamic movement. A variety of techniques will be practiced through a simple asana practice.
