Tuition: Full Workshop is $390 + GST

This incredible seminar will combine the physical practice with theoretical study of the practice.
Learn the theories behind the practice. Begin the process of reflection, observation and response to the observations, which initiates more practice. Repeat, and repeat again. This is the path to living yoga, and to learning how to teach it.
During these days of practice, Chuck Miller will emphasize techinque in the morning led classes and allow this work to inform the afternoon workshops. Similarly, afternoon sessions will help us tune up the following days practices.
Workshop Topics will vary depending on the students in attendance, and the group as a whole.
This workshop with Chuck Miller is eligible for credit in our 500 Hr. Apprenticeship Training Program.
Some topics that will likely be covered are:
Sun Salutes and Standing Poses: The Keys to all other postures
In this dynamic class, we'll use breath, roots, and core in Surya Namaskara, standing postures, and finishing postures to explore these concepts.
Backbends: The Road Less Traveled
We will explore back bends from simple postures aiming to understand deeper how to apply ourselves to back bend safely and then how to challenge ourselves to go deeper as it is appropriate. All are welcome to work to their own unique capacity and learn to recognize that we all have our limits. This is required in order to challenge ourselves appropriately.
Going Upside Down: A Fresh Perspective on Life
Not only does going upside down give us a fresh supply of blood to neglected parts of our bodies but it also gives a different view of the world. We will develop the skills to build strength and confidence to practice these valuable yoga asanas. There will be time to observe bodies and to reflect on how to correct our posture in these upside down poses.
We encourage you to reserve your spot quickly. Chuck Miller is a very popular teacher, so this seminar will fill up fast!
