with Kate Stone & Nathania Stambouli

$250 for the weekend (Early Bird $199 by February 2nd)

Saturday & Sunday, February 23rd & 24th

11:30 am - 4:00 pm Saturday & Sunday (instructional hours)
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm Yoga Class to integrate it all

Tired of the same old yoga sequences?

Are you starting to feel your body getting strong in one direction from repetitive movement, but weak in other planes from that same repetitive movement?

Meet functional yoga: intelligent sequencing with a practical application. Put aside everything you know about traditional asana and come learn to move your body the way it was designed to move - in all the planes and in different ways each time.

Kate Stone and Nathania Stambouli will teach you how to create dynamic yoga sequences that will get bodies moving better than ever and peak to advanced poses safely, all while juicing up your creative sides.

Whether you are looking to build a home practice, better understand your own mechanics, or you are a certified teacher looking to valuably give your students an innovative movement class, this weekend will give you the skills to incorporate other movement modalities into your yoga practice so you can build sequences that make you feel READY for where you’re headed.

This 10-hour training includes anatomy, rolling around on the floor, sequencing rubrics, two full practices, and fun.

A sampling of topics to be covered:

  • How things are connected

  • Anatomical principles that show up in yoga/that we want to train

  • Effective cuing for feeling, not pose aesthetics

  • What parts do we need to prepare for what pose?

  • What other movement modalities can we borrow from that may be more effective?

  • How to build and teach ladder flows

  • Teaching progressions; breaking down peak sequences & poses into their parts

  • Intelligent warm-ups & cool-downs

  • The business of teaching

  • Class timing

  • Creative transitions
