YTT 200 hour, yoga teacher training, hudson valley, kingston, ny, modulesWhat makes a great yoga teacher? What makes a great class? Learn to develop your voice and to cultivate your existing skills to hold space and to structure a yoga class that creates the complete experience for practitioners who step into your class.

Learn:

  • structuring a yoga class by building postural arcs and valleys.
  • developing a teacher/class relationship and teacher/student relationship.
  • methods and tools to find personal inspirations and then to share that with the class.

 

Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash

Having met in their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, Leigha and Jacquelyn decided to plant their yoga roots in Kingston in 2011 when they opened The Yoga House in Uptown Kingston. While their styles of practice and teaching differ, their polarities bring a very balanced approach to sharing yoga with those training with them. Both have studied with various teachers, Leigha most recently with Shiva Rea and Jacquelyn with David Swenson, bringing combined knowledge from different approaches to the practice. While they joke about not reading anything but yoga books, they are continually filling their wells with new inspiration for their committed personal practices and the classes that they teach.

qigong, meditation, qi, energy, moving energyQiGong is the cultivation (gong) of the vital, universal force within and around us (qi.)  QiGong often involves making slow movements, being still, stimulating and stretching parts of yourself- all with relaxed attention. Standing, sitting, or laying down, in this class we will learn from the Ling Gui International Healing QiGong School and Turtle Longevity QiGong. For thousands of years we have used QiGong to improve circulation, increase self-awareness, and cultivate self-acceptance.

 

Corinne Wolcott, MSOM, LAc, Certified QiGong Instructor, shares many possible practices for health, all rooted in self-awareness and self-acceptance. Drawing upon her training as a Chinese Medicine Practitioner and twelve years of QiGong practice, Corinne emphasizes curiosity and trust in her classes. She loves her work as a healthcare provider of acupuncture, shiatsu massage, QiGong, and nutrition. Her work and wonderings can be found online at www.tuihealthcare.com.

Also considered “yoga for lazy people”, Thai Massage is an ancient healing system developed by a Buddhist physician over 2500 years ago and helps to restore balance and well-being within the body. Thai Massage is usually performed on the floor and both partners wear comfortable clothing allowing for movement. No oils are used in Thai Massage and the practice is often also called Thai Yoga Massage because the therapist uses hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and adjustments that can include muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. In this workshops students will learn how to give and receive Thai Massage focusing on the legs, shoulders, low back and hips. No prior experience with bodywork is necessary and these workshops are open to people who come with a partner or without.

 

Adi Carter is an internationally celebrated yoga teacher and bodyworker who draws from a background of over 20 years in sports injury management and adventuring to keep her always inspired and problem solving ways to strengthen and increase productivity in the body. Her classes focus on structural alignment principles combined with energy work and touch based off of Eastern medicine and she uses Thai Massage as a basis for physically adjusting students in yoga classes and also for teaching students (and teachers) how to safely adjust each other and begin to tap in to their natural healing abilities.
