Join Karen this fall for advanced training to deepen your personal practice and enrich what you share with your students!

The course will be held over 8 consecutive 3-day weekends (Fridays-Sundays) beginning the week of October 1/2/3 and ending November 19/20/21.  In combination with your 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification, this course will bring you to RYT-500 status.

We will focus on deepening your understanding of yoga at the levels of the physical body, the energetic body, and the mind, bringing the traditional practice into the modern context. Karen combines alignment-based Ashtanga yoga with classical vinyasa, and integrates Buddhist philosophy into the history of yogic thought. This training will also dive into yogic meditation, yogic sleep, and yin/restorative practice.

The training includes daily practice of asana, pranayama, mantra, kriya and yoga nidra, as well as instruction of physical and subtle body anatomy, philosophy, and teaching methodology.  We read modern texts that explore both path and understanding.  We focus on the assessment of a posture from a functional movement perspective, as well as the safe and appropriate hands-on assist to suit the individual.

Karen will be joined by two master teachers for this training. Asha Wolf (Doctor of Physical Therapy, Certified Movement Analyst) will present a weekend of applied anatomy. Susan Chiocchi (Reiki Master, Certified in Brennan Healing Science, Certified to Perform Soul and Life Force Retrieval ritual in the Bon lineage of Tibetan Buddhism) will present a weekend on asana and the energy body. The weekends with Asha and Susan will be available to join a la carte as well.
