Fitness and Yoga

Weaving Fitness Intelligently, Creatively and Safely into Your Vinyasa Flow Classes with Jennilee Toner

Explore the How To’s, When’s and Why’s of adding Fitness to Your Yoga Sequences. This week-long 50 hour immersion will be a dive deep into anatomy subjects such as bone density, joint stability, muscular strength and fascia health. Intelligent, creative, seamless and safe sequencing will be taught, explored and discussed.

We will begin each day with a one-hour meditation (seated, walking and dynamic will be offered). A two-hour dynamic vinyasa flow practice with emphasis on challenging, strengthening and balancing various systems of the body (musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, elimination, immune, etc) will follow. Be prepared to sweat and have fun as you embody your learning!

Two 2.5 lectures will be taught most days with subject matters such as: Yoga for Bone Health, Continuous Scan: Joint Mobility AND Muscle Stability, Deep Dive into Multi-Systems of the Human Body, Cross-Training to Support Your Body On- and Off-the-Mat, Benefits of Toning Your Fascia: How to Do It and Why, and Aesthetic Vs Functional Alignment. These are in addition to sequencing workshops that emphasize When, Where and Why you would add a fitness exercise or element.

There are no prerequisites for this course. A manual will be provided at the training and a reading list will be sent on registration.
