READING THE ROOM WITH A TEACHER’S EYE with Karen Kenney

Join Karen Kenney for READING THE ROOM WITH A TEACHER’S EYE (For new & experienced yoga teachers as well as serious yoga students)
Saturday March 19th 1 -5pm

In this super fun, interactive workshop we’ll explore the powerful art of Yoga Assists and learn how to read the Room with a Teacher’s Eye. Part lecture, part demonstration and part hands-on practice, this 4-hour workshop will give you new insights and tools into what we’re really looking for and seeing when we stand at the front of a room and take in the wholeness of each student.
This workshop is perfect for new teachers that are trying to build their confidence and skill set – as well as experienced teachers who are curious learners and want to see through a new set of eyes. As a yoga teacher, you’ll gain tools for bearing witness, creating sacred space, developing “X-Ray vision”, sharing verbal assists and skillful touch in a way that’s clear, concise and compassionate.
Serious yoga students are welcome and will have an opportunity to explore their relationship to the postures and deepen their understanding of how assists enhance their practice.

“Prenatal Concerns for a General Yoga Class”
If you would like to join us for the entire weekend….
Sunday March 20th 11a – 3p with Lisa McAllister of GLOW, RYT-200, RPYT, CCCE
Learn about the physical and emotional changes that happen when a woman is pregnant. Things you as a yoga teacher should be aware of if a pregnant student practices in a regular class. We will go over typical prenatal class sequences, and poses to avoid and/or modify for pregnant students. This training won’t suffice as a certified prenatal yoga teacher training, but
instead offer teachers the skills to accommodate pregnant students.

FLASH YogaFLASH Yoga operates on the idea that the world is our studio. FLASH Yoga is a new program we’re introducing at Symmetry Yoga in which we’ll be hosting yoga classes or yoga related events off site at interesting, picturesque, inspirational, fascinating locations and spaces. Yoga in parks and on beaches are popular because they offer the chance to combine the power of familiar precision with the experience of being in a different and intriguing setting.

We will secure many of these FLASH spaces early enough to put them on the regular event schedule on our website, but many will require us to use Facebook and Twitter to announce Flash events, so anyone interested in receiving FLASH Yoga event information, please like us on Facebook & follow us on Twitter. We will constantly be looking for new FLASH virtual studios and announce them on our website and social media. Information will include description and location of Flash site, day and time, duration, capacity, fee, teacher, class type, facilities at the site, parking, directions, and any specific information or suggestions.

If you have, or know of, a space you think might be ideal for a FLASH Yoga class, please contact us here.
