The Pillars of Back Bends with Maty Ezraty
Date: Dec 10, 2011 Time: 12:30 PM to 04:00 PM Day(s): Sat
The arms and legs are powerful channels to the spine when properly aligned. In this workshop we will learn to use the arms and legs in order to create integration and strength. We will emphasize how to use them properly in backbends so that they free the spine and enable us to feel the lightness to the heart and chest when practiced correctly. We will also explore how to protect our weaknesses and challenge our obstacles for optimal, balanced practice.
Finding more freedom in the chest and heart are the gifts of backbends. Be prepared to have fun and to explore your practice.

Date: Dec 17, 2011 to Dec 18, 2011 Time: 12:30 PM to 04:00 PM Day(s): Sun, Sat
Reading bodies and the art of hands on adjustments are both fundamental tools for teaching yoga. As teachers, we need to refine our ability to see students and be able to help each individual move to the next level in their practice. In this workshop we will develop our ability to see and touch effectively. We will learn to be sensitive with our hands so we can communicate to our students in yet another way.
We will learn to see when a student’s pose could benefit from adjustments and then learn how to make those adjustments safely and effectively using words, visual guidance, hands on or props. This is essential training for all teachers and valuable for non teachers who wish to deepen and refine their asana practice.
This workshop will include:
-The art of observation
-Modifying poses for individuals
-Hands on Adjustments
-The use of Props
This workshop is open to teachers and to students who want to deepen their understanding of Asana. Each class will begin with a short practice. Partner work and observation of bodies will be used.
