We welcome Doug Keller back to Yoga on High after a break of several years. Doug is a teacher who is always learning, and we very much look forward to his offerings this year. A wise, funny and humble teacher, Doug embodies what we love about yoga.
This year Doug will focus on learning anatomic and therapeutic practices to support shoulders and knees. The knee section will also provide tools and insights into problems with the hips and feet.
The training is structured to help teachers understand more deeply the therapeutic rationale behind alignment and action instructions in yoga poses — and to know when these instructions are helpful and appropriate, and when variations or a different emphasis are necessary. Instructions are clear, specific and user-friendly, and backed up by knowledge of the anatomy involved in the movements as well as an understanding of the common therapeutic problems that bring students to yoga seeking help. Asana sections will demonstrate the principles taught.
Beyond its usefulness in the classroom, the training is structured to give tools of assessment and sequencing for ‘mini-series’ of asanas and exercises for working individually with students on therapeutic problems. These ideas will also be helpful for sequencing larger classes or groups working with therapeutic problems in common.
And by our request, Doug will include time on Sunday morning for pranayama and meditation.
This workshop is appropriate for those who have already studied with Doug seeking to reinforce what they have learned and looking for new insights to add to what they know. Likewise, the training always proves to be very accessible to teachers and advancing students coming for the first time, seeking deeper insight into yoga, its rationale, and its benefits.
A $75.00 cancellation fee is included in the workshop cost. No refunds will be given within 30 days of the start date of workshops.
