PRE/POST NATAL BARRE & BARRE FOR HEALTHY AGING TRAININGS: MODULES II

WITH JENNIFER GELFAND, JOY MANY, & JACKIE GALLO


PRE/POST NATAL BARRE TRAINING: MODULE II with JACKIE GALLO

Saturday | March 23rd | 9:30am-12:30am | $50 or $55 day of | $90 combo for both modules

Your student has been cleared for exercise following birth. But, what does this mean exactly?

Join us for the 2nd Module in our Pre / Postnatal Barre continuing education series as we delve deeper into what it means to be "postpartum". While we will discuss both vaginal and c-section recovery, a greater focus will be placed on the needs to the post operative student in this module. In 2016, the rate of cesarean delivery in Maine was 28.9%. This means that statistically, 1 in 3 postnatal students will be recovering from major abdominal surgery when they enter your class.

Our time together will include informative lecture, practical hands on exploration of barre exercises for the postnatal student, and a 45 minute "postnatal barre" class. An in depth handout reviewing our time together will be provided.

You will leave with an understanding of:

- The distinction between "being cleared to exercise" and "healed"
- A deeper understanding of the pelvic floor
- An appreciation for what muscles and areas of fascia are affected during a cesarean section
- Modifications and progressive exercises to offer your students no matter where they are at in their postnatal journey
- The mind-body connection and how and why this is relevant to your postnatal students

BARRE FOR HEALTHY AGING TRAINING: MODULE II with Jennifer gelfand & joy many

Jenn Gelfand, DPT, RYT and Joy Many, DPT, CYT are teaming up to offer a unique module on barre for healthy aging with a focus on balance and bone health. The complex systems that allow for balance will be reviewed, as well as an anatomical dive into feet and knees. Common conditions related to these body parts will be discussed. Drawing from their expertise as movement specialists in injury prevention and rehabilitation across the lifespan, they will cover physical limitations related to balance and fall prevention.

They will review conditions that may compromise wellness as we age, including osteoporosis, arthritis (Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis) and menopause.

UNWINDING PATTERNS: RESTORATIVE YOGA TRAINING

Study in Restorative Yoga Through a Trauma-Informed Lens

WITH NICOLE CLARK & KATE ROBINSON

Saturday & Sunday | September 21st & 22nd | 12pm-8pm | $400

“You do not have to be good./ You only have to let the soft animal of your body/

love what it loves.” ~ Mary Oliver

The art of undoing patterns of tension, gripping, and protective holding is at the heart of restorative yoga. At this particular moment in our collective history, creating the time and space for deeper listening is crucial for self-care and for leading a truly well-balanced yoga class.

This training is dedicated to exploring the benefits and transformative potential in restorative yoga for EVERY body, everyday. From the strategic use of props, to crafting genuine and customized support tailored to a diverse audience, we’ll tap into a quieter, nourishing practice. (You’ll also get plenty of time on the bolster for yourself!)

You’ll leave this training with a dynamic and mobile restorative toolbox, confidence in your intuition as a teacher and practitioner, and a quiet sense of grounding.

Who is this training for?

  • Yoga students interested in a deeper understanding of the power of restorative yoga, and how to integrate these techniques into your home practice

  • Yoga teachers who are interested in teaching restorative yoga

  • Yoga teachers who are interested in weaving restorative shapes into their non-restorative classes

You’ll leave with:

  • A clear understanding of how to skillfully incorporate restorative poses into your classes

  • Working with abundant AND limited props

  • Crafting an intuitive and soulful restorative yoga class for your students, and yourself

  • Understanding the power of basic hands-on assists

  • Thoughts on the wisdom of omitting hands-on assists

  • Knowledge of the variables that can create a trauma-informed restorative class

Join Nicole and Kate for a Trauma-Informed Restorative Yoga long weekend! Yoga Alliance CE’s available.
