Free Intro to Building Your Home Practice

This free introductory session will provide an overview of the upcoming Year of Building Your Home Practice at Circle Yoga. You can design a home practice to address any number of challenges, from running marathons or giving speeches to coping with injuries and illnesses, both physical and emotional. But long-term, the reward of a steady home practice is bigger than all of this. It's about coming to know yourself and, from that steady base, facing your life and whatever it brings with confidence, balance, and grace. Join Bonnie for this one-hour session to learn more about how the year will be structured and what you can expect to gain from the experience. Students with all levels of experience are welcome to attend this introductory session. Email bonnie@circleyoga.com with questions.

Mindfulness and Emotions: Using Inner Relationship Focusing (IRF) to Transform Difficult Feelings

It's easy to stay calm and be mindful when we're happy and centered. But when difficulties arise and strong emotions are triggered, we often lose our stability and get reactive. In this workshop we will learn a simple step-by-step process to help us stay with our difficult reactive parts and support others in doing so as well. This process is based on Ann Weiser Cornell's Inner Relationship Focusing (IRF). IRF helps us create space around our reactions so that we can see that we are more than just our anger, fear, or sadness. We will learn how to be mindful of the physicality of our strong emotions, giving us freedom and choice where we usually have acted out of habit. Each workshop registrant will also receive a 30-minute free focusing session with one of the teachers, to be scheduled for a date before or after the workshop.

Date and Time:

Friday — Fri Jun 12 2015, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Budding Yogis Teaching Yoga to Kids Certification

Do you think you might enjoy teaching yoga to children? Or do you think your child might benefit from learning to relax through the non-competitive practice of yoga? This 20-hour workshop is intended for school teachers, parents, yoga teachers, therapists, or anyone interested in learning how to enrich children's lives with yoga practice. Participants will learn how to teach kids yoga classes, how to create theme-based yoga classes, and how to teach self-calming and meditation techniques. In addition to learning how to teach kids yoga poses and yoga games, participants will gain a clear understanding of the age-breakouts for classes and learn techniques for dealing with various behaviors, including special needs. We will learn through doing, by experiencing kids yoga classes and discussing what works well with kids. Each student will have an opportunity to plan, observe, and teach a free kids yoga class on the last day of the workshop. We'll also discuss what it takes to get started teaching and/or start-up a kids yoga business. A Budding Yogis Certificate will be given to each participant if all sessions and the practice teaching session are successfully attended. Some yoga experience required. More about the training.

Payment may be made in two installments, due on 5/1/15 and 6/1/15. If you need to cancel your registration, please do so at least one week before the workshop, and your fee will be refunded minus a 20% administrative fee.

Every Kid's Yoga: Teaching Yoga to Children with Special Needs

This 20-hour experiential training with Craig Hanauer will integrate yoga, creative arts and play for children with special needs, ages 4-12 years. Trainees will learn how the practice of yoga parallels and supports other therapeutic modalities in addressing difficulties with attention, self-regulation, speech and language learning, and high and low muscle tone. The training will provide a strong foundation for teaching yoga to children with special needs such as high functioning autism/Asperger's Syndrome, sensory processing dysfunction, learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and mild cerebral palsy. The primary focus of the training is on working with groups of "higher functioning" children with special needs, who are essentially "physically able."

This training is appropriate for yoga teachers, parents, teachers and therapists with a personal yoga practice who are interested in incorporating yoga into their work with children. Trainees learn how to: structure a class for potentially impulsive children using behavior management and limit-setting techniques; modify postures for this population; teach breathing exercises, meditation and relaxation to children; integrate props, chanting, Thai Yoga Massage, and partner yoga; employ visuals for children with language-based learning disabilities; use yoga to support speech and language development, sensory processing, memory, and reading comprehension.

Refund policy: no refund after two weeks prior, with the understanding that one can attend this same training in the future using past payment, plus a $100.00 rescheduling fee.
