Language & 'Alignment' for an embodied practice
For teachers & regular practitioners
Empower yourself and your students with mindful
As a good percentage of the yoga world is beginning to discover
the joys and benefits of embodied, somatic and natural movement
practices it is clear that the teaching language has to change. The
old cue based system where the focus is on getting the pose "right"
is becoming outdated. It not only suggests a "one size fits all"
model but it is also a very disempowering way of
Julie has always been passionate about communication as a teacher
and now more than ever she is keen to give skills and the science
behind how language effects us. We'll discover how the nervous
system reacts when we receive commands or negative directions.
Pointing out common yoga language that is restrictive and
comparative and how we can turn to a language of allowing, support
and empowering as students to find their own way. When we are
teaching a more embodied practice we need to guide students to feel
in their bodies and have an awareness of the experience. A great
deal of research has been done in healing trauma and stress via
somatic movement practices and how this is presented to clients or
students is crucial.
Needless to say this expands beyond the yoga room and into our
everyday lives. How are communicating with each other?
What to expect
This 3 day event will take us through a journey to unravel
outdated modes of communication and bring us to connect with more
compassion, not only for our students but also ourselves.
How language effects the body, the nervous system and cultivates
self beliefs. How a cueing based system in yoga perpetuates
disempowerment, what words/phrases we need to stop using and how to
begin that change.
If we're not cueing, then what happens to alignment and structure?
We'll go through how to help students find their own stability and
structure without leaving them bewildered or confined. The breath
and how we talk about it, cue it or not will also be discussed.
Learn how to get students to explore with guidelines and cultivate
trust in the classroom.
What is our self talk? How the silent language we use on ourselves
hi-jacks our brains and creates unconscious beliefs systems. We'll
go through the limbic system in the brain and learn techniques and
practices that free us from our mental patterns. We also take this
information into how we communicate with everyone.
Who is this for?
For teachers and regular practitioners who are interested in
enhancing their communication skills.
