The Therapeutic Wisdom of Yoga: Rewriting the Story of Our Health and Growth
with Doug Keller
Friday, Mar 9 - Sunday, Mar 11, 2018
at the Chevy Chase Village Hall
This will also include treatment of patterns of movement linked to pain syndromes that can be ‘rewritten’ through asana practice, as well as the relatively new concepts of the Fascial Distortion Model, which explains the cause of much of our chronic pain in terms of ‘blocks’ in the fascial tissue.
The added perspective of the Fascial Distortion Model also will help us recognize the root of “yoga injuries” and pain caused by imbalances in yoga practice — as well as other disciplines of physical movement and sport — that gives rise to or intensifies distortions in the fascia.The description — and its treatment — of fascial distortions is quite similar to the description given by the yogis as well as the Marma-centered disciplines of Ayurveda.
Certified yoga teachers will be eligible to receive CEUs for the sessions they fully attend.
All program sessions will be held at the Chevy Chase Village Hall, which is located at 5906 Connecticut Ave NW, Chevy Chase, MD 20815 — less than half a mile from Circle Yoga. There are sandwich shops and restaurants within a half mile walk of the Village Hall.
Since this workshop will take place off-site, each student should bring a yoga mat, a blanket (more, if needed for comfort), two blocks, and a strap.

Doug Keller’s background reflects a lifelong commitment to the vast field of yoga. After receiving degrees in philosophy from Georgetown and Fordham University and teaching philosophy at a college level, he pursued a practical experience of yoga at the ashram Gurudev Siddha Peeth in India — which in turn also led him to the practice of hatha yoga as part of his overall experience of yoga. From years of study, practice and teaching, he has produced widely used and highly respected books on asana, yoga as therapy, pranayama and yoga philosophy, and he teaches hatha yoga workshops and trainings in both North America and Europe. He has been a regular columnist for Yoga International Magazine, and is also writing on therapeutic topics for Yoga Journal. His popularity as a teacher comes from his ability to deepen people’s experience of yoga through clear, simple and direct instructions that are easy to practice and remember. And he does it with lightness and light.
