Yoga Therapy Approaches with Ravi Singh
This is an add-on experience for those who want to come early and dive in! To register for this experience please visit: https://sedonayogafestival.com/syf2019-pre-post-conference-immersions/

If a client came to you with depression, anxiety, adrenal fatigue, migraines, diabetes, high blood pressure, hypothyroid…do you have the yogic tools to give them something that works beyond the generic approaches most yoga teachers draw upon? Of course we’re not doctors and as yoga teachers we can’t claim to diagnose or heal, but as an adjunct to medical treatment we want to be in a position to make a difference for people. In this workshop you’ll learn specific techniques for a wide range of ailments to improve the quality of your students’ lives and dramatically add to your professional palette.

Kundalini Yoga prompts the energy of energies to allow us to foster a relationship with energy itself. Let’s train ourselves to be conduits for the Universe to work through and raise our trajectory for optimal outcomes! We’ll do a profound practice together and gain powerful insights into the essence of the healing path.

Celebrated Teacher Ravi Singh has 45 yrs. teaching experience and (w/Ana Brett) is Author of 25 bestselling DVD’s and an incredible new book: Kundalini Yoga: Life in the Vast Lane. Ravi’s approach is powerful, poetic, motivational, majestic, and fun! He’s been called the “Teacher’s Teacher.” He recently participated as an advisor to the Yoga Alliance Standards Review Project on Teacher Training Qualifications. Ravi Singh is a 500 hr. E-RYT T. Trainer and can offer CEU’s for this event. If you have a prevailing condition Ravi will do his best to offer a protocol as an adjunct to standard treatment.

Teaching to Older Adults
Limited Capacity seats available

Exercise is a crucial part of healthy aging, and as a large percentage of our population are now in their 60’s, 70’s,and 80’s, it is imperative that they are offered low-impact exercise options to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A consistent yoga practice can reduce the risk of falls, increase flexibility and range of motion in the joints, increase strength and reduce stress as we age. As yoga teachers we need to be aware of the risks and contraindications for this demographic. In this 2 hour workshop we will look at some of the issues of aging and how a yoga practice can be adapted to accommodate this population, while still creating fun and functional classes.
