Full Bodied Yoga: Beginners (6 classes, May 2017) (no drop ins) CAD$119.70Purchase required to enroll

Yoga can encourage us to reconnect with our bodies, gain confidence, ease tight muscles, and relieve stress. When you have a bigger body, however, it may not always feel easy to simply jump into any class. This six class series offers a space to share with other full bodied, plus-sized, or bigger bodied people in a small class size where we can explore the yoga practice, learn modifications that can make the postures more accessible, and ask questions. Gain a deeper feeling of satisfaction in the skin that you are in, and learn the tools you need to feel good in your body and in your yoga. Helen also provides added resources via email for those that would like to learn more.

Yoga can support us to feel more at home in our bodies and calmer and more confident in the world. How and why does yoga work? How can we integrate what we experience in practice into our lives? How do our bodies and emotions inform one another?

Teaching as Storytelling: Secrets of Sequencing Yoga Classes (July 2017) CAD$131.25Purchase required to enroll

Sequencing is the secret magic of a yoga class. It’s the reason your students leave feeling great...or not. Well, it’s not magic! Just as a story needs not only words but also grammar to make sense, a yoga class has an underlying logic that can help us move our students in a specific direction both physically and energetically.

This class is for yoga teachers who want to understand not only what the yoga postures are, but why and how to organize them in a sequence. It will help you create classes creatively and safely and with minimal prep. Once you know why, when, and how certain postures should go together, you’ll never need to memorize a sequence again! We will also discuss how sequencing can support the theme that you are trying to offer to your students, how to clarify your intentions in class, and gain confidence in who you are as a yoga teacher.



How to Make a Living as a Yoga Teacher (Aug 2017) CAD$103.95Purchase required to enroll

Teaching yoga is a wonderful but somewhat confusing career. It is full of possibilities, but how do we know which ones will work for us? How do we get people to come to class? How do we teach enough classes without getting burnt out? What does it mean to teach full time? And… how do we make money?

The truth is, teaching yoga can be incredibly creative, satisfying, and even sustainable, but we must figure out how tap into our inner boss to figure out how to make it work for us. You have something unique and important to offer--the trick is figuring out how to name it and get it out there. In this workshop, we explore best practices for filling your classes, getting paid well, and building your career into something that can nourish and sustain you as the yoga teacher you really want to be.
