Triad Yoga 300 Hr Teacher Certification Program - Module 2 Information

Triad Yoga's 300 Hour Teacher Certification Program Module 2 was canceled in March due to studio operating restrictions related to COVID-19.  Instead of prolonging the module with a later date or having a long weekend of virtual classes, Terry has decided to break the module down into 3 hour classes, over a 2 month period. These modules will be presented in virtual format and you can participate right in the comfort of your home!  The  anatomy and yoga asana classes are all related to the hips, pelvis, and lumbar spine. This module includes pranayama classes, philosophy talks, and classes on mastering teacher instructor skills. There will be a total of 8 teacher training classes.

Module 2 Workshop Class 6: Forward Bends:  Strength and Flexibility

Forward bending poses not only improve the mobility of the back body, but they also strengthen the abdomen and back.  The body needs a strong core and flexible spine to move successfully through our activities of the day without pain or discomfort.  When working on flexibility of the back body, the muscles will respond better if they are strong, the opposite of tight and weak.  Forward bends also help reduce stress, anxiety and fatigue.

It will be held on Thursday, June 25th, 5:30PM - 8:30PM.  Workshop cost is $30.00 and registration is available under "Workshops".

Module 2 Workshop Class 7:  The Sacroiliac Joint:  Anatomy, Joint Dysfunction, and Yoga for Stabilization

The sacroiliac joint connects the pelvic bones to the sacrum.  The primary function of the sacroiliac joint is to absorb shock between the upper body and the pelvis and legs.  The joint is reinforced with strong ligaments surrounding it.  This network of soft tissues should provide support, limit movement, and assist with absorbing pressure.  The primary mechanisms of SI joint dysfunction include too much movement (hypermobile) and too little movement (hypomobile).  The tools of yoga offers practices that will help with either condition.

This class also includes a discussion on how Yoga Teachers can be roll models for ethical behavior. 

It will be held on Friday, July 3rd, 5:30pm - 8:30pm.  Workshop cost is $30.00 and registration is available under "Workshops". 


Module 2 Workshop Class 8:  Standing Poses for Pelvic Stability and Spinal Health

Understanding how to practice standing poses with focus on the power of the legs can help create stability around the pelvis and strength to support the spine.   When done correctly, standing poses not only strengthen the muscles that protect the knee and ankle joints but they help you build a better foundation for your whole body.

This class also includes a class discussion on the book A New Earth, by Elkhart Tolle.

It will be held on Sunday, July 5th, 9:00am - 12:00pm.  Workshop cost is $30.00 and registration is available under "Workshops".


Yoga Workshop Immersion - Weekend 1 - July 17th - 19th

Terry Brown will present this workshop, Yoga Workshop Immersion Weekend 1, Developing Skills in Your Practice in the Safety of Your Home, July 17th - 19th.

This workshop is for teachers and students that wish to challenge their practice and sequencing skills.  Some of the classes in this 2 part program will focus on safe and mindful practices that lead you to a goal pose.  Other practices will focus on refining our skills in poses you already practice and others on specific areas of the body.  These classes will be modified to allow you to practice safely at home with your computer.

Friday, July 17th ~ 6:00PM - 8:30PM - Balancing the Rotators of the Hip

The movements of internal and external rotation of the hip are often imbalanced with one of the movements restricted, and the opposite movement weak.  This can lead to challenges in the hip over time from instability and poor alignment of the hip joint.  This will be a fun class that explores methods of releasing the tight muscles of internal and external rotation, freeing up the hips from years of tension.

Saturday, July 18th ~ 9:00AM - 12:00PM - Enriching the Practice of Utthita Parsvakonasana (Extended Side Angle Pose)

This pose is a beautiful blending of Utthita Trikonasana and Virabhadrasana II.  When practiced with refinements and a full understanding of the body and where all components should be in place, this pose offers a boost in energy and a release of tension in the shoulders, spine and hips.

Saturday, July 18th ~ 1:30PM - 4:30PM - Parivrtta Upavistha Konasana (Revolved Seated Angle Pose)

This seat pose involves side-bending, twisting, stretching and hip opening.  It's a bit of a challenging pose!  This class will look at how to break down the components of this pose and work on it in a safe approachable sequence.

Sunday, July 19th ~ 9:00AM - 12:00PM - Balancing the Hamstrings and Hip Flexors

Our hips and low back health can become compromised when the hamstrings and hip flexors are tight and not balanced.  For some of us, once set of the muscle groups is tighter than the other.  Regardless, our attention should focus on both groups.  This sequence is designed to open the hamstrings and the hip flexors thereby the tension they cause around the hips and low back.

Sunday, July 19t ~ 1:30PM - 4:30PM - Managing a Skillful Practice of Salamba Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand)

Salamba Sarvangasana is considered one of the most important yoga asanas.  The practice of this inversion helps develop harmony in the human body and mind.  The benefits include a healthier endocrine system, immune system, and circulatory system.  In the pose, the upper body is flushed with blood that benefits the lungs and brain.  The approach of this class is methodically look at the physical requirements to prepare fore a well-balanced practice with helpful variations.  At least 6 months of yoga practice suggested.

Full weekend - all 5 classes $160.00.  Individual classes are $35.00.  Registration is available under "Workshops".
