Deepen Your Practice: A Workshop with Kerry

"I love feedback after workshops and love it even more when at the end of the last amazing arm balancing bonanza the feedback was to run more workshops!

With this is mind I managed to book a final worshop before all the craziness of Christmas takes over......

 

Join me for a chance to deepen your practice. Often people would think that this would mean doing more advanced asanas, but this is not the case. We can also go deeper into our practice by listening and responding to what the mind and body are communicating to us about the way we are practicing. We will also work with maintaining the breath throughout the practice so you will leave energised rather than depleted."

12:00 PM12:00

New Year Yoga Mala

Yoga Mala (the practice of 108 sun salutations) is traditionally undertaken at times of progression, and of change. This New Year event has become a very special day in the calendar for us at YT, and we are looking forward to its continuing evolution and sharing this powerful experience with you again. 

Each salutation represents one of the 108 stages on the journey of the evolution of the human soul, and as such represent both the journey we have already taken, and the new adventure waiting for us in the new year.

The day will begin with a guided meditation process, celebrating the past year, but also working with the elements we are ready to leave behind, and the new energies we all looking to manifest in the coming year before moving into the Mala itself, and the physical experience of redesigning our energy. 

To close the practice we will have an indoor fire Ceremony, to commit our intentions and our wishes to the universe.

Thai Yoga Massage Level 3.a

I am excited to announce that myself and Chris Jackson are collaborating to create and teach this new Advanced Diploma of 8 days duration at the Yoga Therapies studio in Newcastle. This new FHT accredited Diploma is split into 2 modules.

Part 1: covers Body Assesment and Correction and then develops into Dynamic Thai massage for the lower body. The dates for part 1 are Sept 25th / 28th

Part 2: covers Abdominal massage and Dynamic Thai massage for the Upper body on Nov 27th / 30th. Although people are welcome to join only one of the two modules the accredited qualification can only be awarded to those who complete both parts 1 and 2.

The Advanced Therapeutic Diploma is a fusion of Osteopathy and Dynamic Thai Yoga Massage, acting as a bridge between the Old and New, between the East and West, where the best parts of 2 great Holistic systems are brought together to create something very unique and possibly even more effective. In this course the meditative, intuitive and feeling based approach of traditional Thai Yoga massage is merged with the more precise anatomical approach of Osteopathic practice. The goal here is to produce the best framework possible at this moment in time to guide self-motivated therapists to their highest capacity as conscious, compassionate and skillful body workers

The approach here will be to help each student come to a greater understanding of their body through a direct and guided experience in Yoga Asana, with an intention to enable them to transfer this knowledge into their own yoga, massage and teaching practices.

Dynamic Thai Yoga Massage: This part of the programme combines the art of Thai Yoga Massage with Dynamic Osteopathic techniques. The physical goal of this approach is to improve joint mobility, restore vitality and correcting imbalances in the bodies muscular/skeletal systems and myo-fascial trains.

Press the Ground Away and Fly

Yoga arm balances are for every level and every'body'

Many often think that arm balances are reserved for the advanced practitioners. This is not the case. Crow pose was one of the first poses I actually got, simply because as a novice and complete beginner to yoga it never occurred to me that I couldn't do it. So many of our physical limitations are in our head. 

For this workshop try to be present in your body and forget about what you think you can and can not do. 

Even if you don't fly today, you may do tomorrow or in the future and you would have had a great ab, arm and shoulder workout to boot. 

Come and join the fun, you may surprise yourself!

  • Emotions and imagination 
  • Thoughts and habit patterns

Deeper into the Stretch - With Manos.

BACK TO THE STRETCH  

School's back - are we ready for the new routine? How do we future proof our bodies to make sure we're functioning in the very best way we can? 

We'll be exploring the structure of your stretch programme. It's easy to think more is better (#yogaeverydamnday??), but how much is too much and what's the minimum effective dose? 

How do we work with injury prevention rather than trying to fix ourselves when we've over done it? 

How are you tailoring the repetitions or the intensity of a movement for YOUR body?

You'll come away with effective strategies to get better results from your stretching, and if you're anything like my typical students you'll come away feeling deeply relaxed and blissed out, having taken the time to go deep into your own body and iron out some crinkles.

Look forward to seeing you on the mat!

PS - if you would like to bring children/ teenagers please let me know and I'd love to work with you to find a way to accommodate them.

The Beginners Diploma level 1&2 is the foundation of Thai Yoga Massage. It is the starting point for all therapists and provides an internationally recognised qualification on successful completion. The course is 10/11 workshops in duration and will teach you.

  • How to give full body Thai Yoga Massage in a variety of ways including Supine, Prone, Side and Sitting Positions
  • How to apply Yoga stretches, Acupressure and Compression techniques with your Thumbs, Hands, Forearms, Elbows, Knees and Feet.
  • How to work confidently with the 10 Sen lines of Thai Yoga Massage
  • Understanding of the History, Yoga Philosophy and Practice of Thai Yoga Massage

The next course I am teaching is with Yoga teacher Chris Jackson in Newcastle, England at his studio Yoga Therapies starting in July 2017. I feel that we have successfully brought together two complementray systems in this new diploma to improve the general foundation course of Thai Yoga Massage and the way it is commonly taught.

Chris presently teaches a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training diploma at his studio and is well known throughout the Uk for his compassion and skill. Having worked with Chris previously I was encouraged to approach him with this new format for teaching this Beginners level 1&2 diploma and the following level 3 Advanced Therapeutic Diploma.

Very few schools can offer the addition of an Accredited Advanced Diploma to its Beginners Diploma and not only have we achieved this, but we now also provide students with the opportunity to join the level 3 Advanced Diploma 7 weeks after completing the Beginners level 1&2 Diploma. This gives those students who are really interested in the art of Thai Yoga Massage a chance to practice and develop between both couress and also to go one step further and become an Advanced practitioner.

The Advanced course with Chris is Advanced Therapeutics level 3 and the Advanced course I teach on my own is Advanced Dynamic level 3. The main difference being that I teach a Yoga and Thai Massage programme that concentrates on Dynamic massage and we begin to enter into body psychotherapy working with trauma. The course with Chris in Newcastle is longer and goes deeper into Anatomy and the specific practices of Yoga Asana and Pranayama.

The Beginners course and Advanced courses I teach with Chris begin with a 2hr Yoga class with an intention of really teaching the Principles, Practices and Anatomy of Yoga relevant to the 4/5hr workshop in Thai Yoga Massage that follows it. We used this combination last year in teaching the Therapeutic diploma and it worked so well we decided to include it in the level 1&2 course also

The morning Yoga class helps students to either start or further develop their own Yoga practice with a deeper understanding and the Functional Anatomy element is a very creative aproach of helping them to strengthen, explore and understand their bodies in a way that really supports the Thai Yoga Massage. A very good practitioner will also have a regular Yoga, Qi Gong or Tai Chi practice and we provide that vehicle for self motivated therapists at a high yet accessible standard.

The Diploma has been split into two modules and people are welcome to do just one of them but the accredited qualification can only be awarded to those who complete both modules. They start on:

Level 1 – Supine Position – July 3rd-7th                                                                                             Level 2 – Side, Prone, Sitting – August 1st-5th

The Diploma is open to everyone but most suited to those who have an interest in Yoga and Massage. It is possible to miss workshops due to prior arrangements or illness but they will need to be caught up with me or Chris in a one to one session to obtain qualification.

Additional benefits to the Level 1 & 2 Diploma course

  • You will have 2 Yoga teachers who are very highly trained in their chosen fields
  • The Diploma provides online video for the workshop sequences, to assist learning and practice between sessions
  • Completing this level 1&2 Diploma allows immediate progression to the more Advanced diplomas
  • High quality Thai Yoga mats are provided for practice
  • This qualification is accredited by the leading UK insurance company FHT, and is also insurable in most European countries (but please check with your own insurance company)
  • We teach morning Yoga and Meditation as a path to peace and greater self awareness and connection

 

Daily Format ; 

9.00-11.00 yoga & anatomy.

11.00 - 11.45 - sequence demo.

1.15 - 5 - practicals, technique & anatomy.

The Yoga Clinic. With Erica Mather

The Yoga Clinic. With Erica Mather

Join New York-based Forrest Yoga Guardian Erica Mather for a series of exciting options to study with her! Attend classic  Forrest Yoga "Intensives" in the morning Forrest Yoga gentle "Back Care" classes in the afternoon--designed for people with back injuries--and join her in a mini, introductory module exploring back pain, injuries, and how Forrest Yoga can help people live pain-free. Dive in for the entire experience, or, just come practice with her! 

Heal your Back Intensives,

Saturday. Plagued with back pain? Revitalize and strengthen your back. Stimulate healing by learning how to bring fresh oxygen, blood and nerve energy into your back and torso. Forrest Yoga teaches poses created specifically to heal and strengthen your back. Work, sweat, and attain freedom from back pain.

Sunday. One thing I really love about Forrest Yoga is the way that it teaches back-bending. Are you frightened of these poses? Don’t be. In this class, I’ll teach back-bends that are accessible to everyone, and at the same time offers a challenge to everyone. Your ability to do wheel is not a prerequisite. Whether you think your back is healthy, or you’re sure it’s a wreck, there is something for everyone in this class.

9-11am Intensives: £30

Back Care Clinic: Come to this short, gentle, and therapeutic class founded on the principles and sequencing of Forrest Yoga. You'll find no "intensity" here, though--unless its the kind you find by going deep inside. This class is perfect for you if you are injured, or over 40, or would like to do a therapeutic class which involves moving, but not too much.
