Philosophy and the Yoga Surtas of Patanjali with Megan Miller, a 2-part session: Friday March 2nd: and Saturday April 7 in Arlington Heights

 

BKS Iyengar’s translation and commentary on these ancient yoga sutras has been described as the “bible” of yoga. Study in depth these ancient texts and learn more about all the limbs of yoga.

 

Focus will be on the 8 Limbs of yoga and the Sutras of Patanjali. Megan will interweave the sutras into the asana practice, and have students create a vision board on one or

all 8 limbs of yoga and bring with them to the 2nd session to share. (Friday location session TBD). Note both sessions are unique, and session 2 will build on session 1, take both for 12 hours total.

 

A teacher since 2008, Megan has her 200 hour RYT in Forrest and Anusara Yoga (from Pulsation) and is wrapping up a 500 RYT Iyengar Influenced Advanced Teacher Training, and is is certified in Levels 1 & 2 Yoga for Golfers. Megan’s classes are uplifting and energetic, yet embrace calmer, reflective moments too. Each class is themed and interlaced with breath work, philosophy, creative, progressive sequencing leading to an apex pose, the use of props therapeutically and as tools to make postures more accessible, playlists that are an eclectic mix.

 

Megan works to help students personalize their practices by modifying poses and mindfully progressing to deeper and more challenging poses when they’re ready. Rooted in alignment principles, she wants to help students develop wise, knowledgeable, instinctual practices and find balance, harmony, and peace on and off the mat.

 

Part One: Friday, March 2: 11 am-5 pm

Part Two: Saturday, April 7: 12-6 pm

Mythology & the Deities: in Lake Zurich with Kathy: Saturday March 3rd: 12-6 pm

 

The myths behind yoga’ spiritual tradition have the ability to shift a students practice. The deities or yoga gods are played out in ancient stories about humans or animals, like folktales. These ‘iconic’ figures represent virtues like courage, strength, transformation, and more. A teacher who is able to weave a story about mythology in the class will capture the interest and hearts of the student. Learn about the most popular deities and how to effectively share these wonderful stories in a classroom setting. Asana themed to mythology will be included.

$125 - part of the 300 hour teacher training and open to those who are interested in this subject and want to further their education. (eligible for CE Credits)

March 31st  Kathy: Modifications and Working with Injuries - for Students and Teachers: Lake Zurich session 1: 12-2:45, session 2: 3:10-6pm

Part One: focusing on the upper body: neck, shoulders upper and lower back. (Part two focusing on the lower body: hips, knees ankles and feet will be taught in March)

 

(part of the 300 hour teacher training, & open to all students of yoga.) Eligible for 6 hours CE credits.

 

The first 3 hours of the workshop is tailored to students and teachers. The second part of the workshop is tailored for teachers, although students are welcome to attend both sessions

 

Have you ever been in a yoga class, the teacher calls out a pose you cannot do, and you spend your time sitting and watching the rest of the class? Early on when I started practicing yoga, I wanted to learn how I could still feel part of the class, how I could modify the poses for my own body and limitations. I spent many years documenting what was the 'action' required to get into the pose, then creatively put together my own modifications so that I could still benefit from the pose. Students: use this knowledge to take action to progress in your yoga practice in a safe, well thought-out way. Teachers: learn how to use this valuable tool to serve a broader customer base. Using precise alignment techniques. Come dressed in yoga clothing, be prepared to work through an array of poses.

 

(Students will be encouraged ahead to email me prior to the workshop with a list of poses you find challenging)

 

The second part of the workshop is tailored for teachers, although students are welcome to attend both sessions. Choose first and second half if you intend to do all 6 hours.

 

First Half: Fee $62.50

Second Half $62.50
