To affect the broadest change, bring your love of yoga to those most in need. Brooke Hamblet Teaching Training School presents Outreach Yoga: A Continuing Education Elective. This workshop is suitable for 200-hour certified yoga instructors with a passion for transformative yoga.
Students will gain experience with yoga’s applications for trauma, addiction, and mental health, participate in varied class structures, and learn how to teach in a clinical setting.
THE ENERGY + EMOTION OF YOGA
For many yoga students, a recurring question that they have after doing yoga is, “why do I feel better after I do yoga?” The answers are simple, and yet they are far reaching. In this signature elective workshop, a modern study of the Chakras, we will explore the “why” behind the energy and emotion of yoga. We will get a clearer understanding of how the physical practice affects not only our physical bodies, but also our emotions, our mindfulness, our ability to choose and decide situations in our lives, and perhaps the most important impact of all: how we communicate. Grounded in the ancient teachings, but presented in modern, real life ways, this workshop will guide students to connect the emotional, mental, spiritual and physical “dots”, providing them with new and powerful tools to lead powerful and inspirational lives.

This day-long, intensive workshop, conducted in a group setting, includes two 45-minute yoga sessions led by Brooke Hamblet.

THE HISTORY + PHILOSOPHY OF YOGA WITH NICOLAI BACHMAN
November 30 - December 2, 2018
The Origins of Yoga: Where did yoga come from? What is the larger context of yoga? Where do Sanskrit, mantra, tantra, and Ayurveda fit in? Exploring the structure and basic content of primary yoga texts can give us a broader view of yoga.
Sanskrit Basics for Yogis: The science of yoga is filled with Sanskrit vocabulary. Teachers and practitioners of yoga, Ayurveda, or meditation can benefit from learning how to pronounce Sanskrit with correct breath, resonance, rhythm, and tongue position. We will talk about Sanskrit as a language, learn pronunciation basics, and practice reading many common yoga terms and posture names.
Asana Names and Stories: The Sanskrit names for yoga postures provide a standard reference that can be used anywhere in the world. So, for teachers of yoga, it is important to know them. When the asana names are vocalized with correct pronunciation and rhythm, it adds a whole new dimension to the postures. We will also explore the reason or story behind the name of each posture.
The Yoga Sutras: The Yoga Sutras is an ancient Sanskrit text that explains what yoga is in its broadest sense. Taking a bird’s eye view, we will examine its history and structure, then discuss what The Yoga Sutras is really about, focusing on certain key concepts and the overall purpose of this monumental work.
Understanding Suffering: Pain and suffering can reveal otherwise hidden aspects of ourselves and provide an opportunity to move forward and learn from the past. By understanding these aspects of ourselves, we move a step closer to enabling a quiet and still heart-mind, and making conscious, appropriate, and well-thought-out choices and actions.
