PNTT Module 2: Teaching the Postpartum Body, A Primer for Teachers with Shana Celnicker-Chong

April 26-28, 2019 $400

15 hrs: Friday 5-9pm, Saturday 1-7 and Sunday 3-8pm

This is a workshop for all yoga teachers that wish to help their students understand how to practice safely through better alignment, deeper awareness in their yoga poses, and sound integrity in any movement practice.

Through our detailed study of anatomy and alignment we will learn about the postpartum "Core," understand some common issues that the post-birthing body can encounter such as Diastasis Recti, and learn about healing and supporting the pelvic floor.  We will also explore some simple Ayurvedic practices to aid in the body’s healing. After the weekend you will feel more confident in supporting your students as they make their way back to public group yoga classes.

Are you a yoga teacher who struggles with finding the right cues to reach every student in your classes? Are you challenged by helping particular students with hip/back pain or sacroiliac issues?

Creating Size-Inclusive Spaces with Dana Sturtevant and Hilary Kinavey of Be Nourished

Sunday, February 10th, 3-7pm $140

Many leaders in the social justice movement have blinders on when it comes to addressing weight bias and size discrimination in their liberation work. We cause harm when we reinforce that body size is correctable and fatphobia runs rampant in our society, often going unchecked. While weight bias impacts all of us, people on the higher end of the weight spectrum are significantly impacted and their health suffers. Many larger bodied folks avoid activities they enjoy because movement spaces collude with diet culture under the guise of health promotion. In this interactive workshop, Hilary Kinavey, MS, LPC, and Dana Sturtevant, MS, RD of Be Nourished will guide participants through a series of activities to help yoga teachers, fitness professionals, and health care providers create size-inclusive spaces for the people they serve.

Trauma-informed Yoga Primer: The Physiology of Resilience with Molly Boeder-Harris

Trauma-informed Yoga Primer: The Physiology of Resilience with Molly Boeder-Harris

Sunday, January 20th 3-7pm $50

Given the pervasive levels of trauma within our society, many students who attend public yoga classes carry the physical, emotional and energetic residue of trauma within their shape and may be more vulnerable to being re-traumatized or feeling triggered in this context. Understanding how a student with a history of trauma might relate to you and your class can enhance your ability as a teacher to create a space where they can incrementally practice presence, listen to the language of their body, and experience the healing power of yoga.

In this brief primer, we will investigate how teaching with a trauma-informed lens can accommodate and address the physical, mental and spiritual impacts that survivors of trauma may navigate. Molly draws from a combination of direct experience, professional work, and academic research, enabling her to attest to both the potential vulnerabilities and the inherent resilience of this population.

Navigating The Fine Lines: A Racial Equity and Inclusion Workshop for Teachers and Wellness Providers with Kenya Budd

Fri-Sun, November 3-5th $75 (scholarships available)

FRI: 5:30-8:30pm SAT/SUN: 3-6:30pm

NAVIGATING THE FINE LINES

We re delighted to welcome Kenya Budd, our Equity and Racial Inclusion facilitator whom we have been working with privately for some time now, into a public forum from which the whole community can benefit.

We all have implicit biases - ways in which we think things about other people that are based on our own bias, not on reality --  As Daniel Kahneman has said, "We're blind to the obvious, and blind to our blindness" about our own thinking, which can be mistaken.  The key question is always whether we are willing to learn more deeply about ourselves and, importantly for our lives and livelihoods, ask: at what point do our implicit biases become another person's impediments to accessing wellness services?
