Thai Yoga 3 Day Immersion w/ Jose Rivera

September 07, 2018

Jose "Yoga Fool" takes a hands-on approach in a course that teaches Thai Bodywork technique for Prone, Supine, Side-Lying, and Seated Positions. This is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in the ancient art of healing touch. When we touch someone there is an energetic exchange and with the combination of breath work and good technique you can help to activate the parasympathetic nervous system (this promotes the bodies natural healing process). You will walk away with enough information to complete a full Thai bodywork sequence. No experience is needed to take this workshop; all levels welcome.

Yin Yoga II w/ Dr. Britt Dienes, AP

October 12, 2018

In Yin Yoga II, we’ll discuss the basic anatomy of bone, muscle and fascia so that we can discuss the biomechanics and actions of each tissue in the yoga practice. 

We will review the variations present in the human skeleton in the spine, femur and tibia, so that we can examine the movement of both bones and joint surfaces (osteokinematics and arthrokinematics) in yoga asana, thus providing a foundation for us to talk the alignment, propping, substitution and contraindications of twists, folds, backbends, and side bends.

Through the lens of Raja Yoga and the traditions of meditation we will help you shape the opening and closing of your yoga class, creating confident teachers of breath-focused meditation and savasana. We will also use meridian theory and traditional hatha sequencing to create custom sequences themed classically or by meridian.

Yin Yoga III w/ Dr. Britt Dienes, AP

October 26, 2018

In Yin Yoga III, we will review the variations present in the human skeleton in the hip, femur and shoulder so that we can discuss the movement of both bones and joint surfaces (osteokinematics and arthrokinematics) in yoga asana, thus providing a foundation for us to talk the alignment, propping, substitution and contraindications of hip and shoulder poses.

Once we’re confident with basic anatomy we’re ready for the larger discussion of the biomechanics of alignment, and an in-depth look at how stretching really works with the anatomy and biomechanics of stretching.

Through the lens of Taoism and the traditions of Wu Wei we will discuss encouraging non-volitional action, non doing, in yin yoga. We’ll also delve deeper into the 8 Limbs and the traditions of Ahimsa to discuss teaching and embodying non- harming through yoga. 

Using the traditions of Meridian Theory, Organ Theory, and the Psychology of the Meridians, we’ll shape sequences according to emotion and organ, and discuss protective sequencing for specific needs.

"💕There is one who has inspired, guided - literally & metaphorically elevated yoga in SRQ. This yogi brought aerial yoga to our town with his unique hammock design & selflessly gifted the magic of this practice with the entire community. His level of skill & direction is unparalleled. The teacher training he provides is BRILLIANT, professional, calculated, & creates mindful, experienced teachers who continually recreate themselves through his skillful direction."

Erin C.

The teacher training at Circusoul was truly a life changing experience. We not only learned Asana, but Yoga. Kerry Tice brought in a diverse group of highly qualified teachers to give us knowledge of Yoga Philosophy, Anatomy, Science, Yoga Therapeutics, Yin Yoga, Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa, Nadda, and Aerial Circus Arts. This training went above and beyond my expectations. I learned how to teach, how others learn, and what I can bring to yoga. The teachers created a warm, welcoming, safe space where I felt comfortable enough not just to learn, but also to grow personally. Circusoul yoga offers a fun community filled with acceptance and support. I highly recommend this training and other trainings offered at Circusoul yoga.
