YOGA TEACHING LAB: Yoga and Positive Psychology for Special Populations

  • Yoga Off East 703 9th Street Durham, NC, 27705 United States (map)

The first Yoga Teaching Lab will be offered by Jessica Cuttance on Yoga and Positive Psychology for Special Populations on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 from 2-4pm at Yoga Off East, Durham, NC. As a therapist and yoga teacher, Jessica will be asking questions such as: What types of special populations are you comfortable teaching and which populations do you feel are ‘out of your scope’? How can we subtly weave themes of positive psychology and healthy emotion management into the yoga classroom? How can we be more inclusive of individuals with disabilities, chronic pain, or those who have mental illness and other chronic conditions? We will end by articulating one concrete way that we will be more inclusive and universally accepting of individuals with varying mental and physical limitations in our yoga classrooms. 

This session is for practicing yoga teachers only. Thank you for helping us create space for our personal and professional growth and evolution.

Desire more practice + feedback in your teaching? Have an idea for a new class or workshop that you would like to explore? Join your local Triangle yoga teacher community for Yoga Teaching Lab hosted by Navigating the Flow Yoga Teacher Mentorship and led by a different teacher each month!

Each month one self-selected teacher will offer a one hour practice exploring a specific theme, idea, philosophy or methodology of their choice. The second hour will be facilitated conversation on the presented content, as well as, questions for constructive feedback on the class experience. 

Each class is a sliding scale of $10-20 to cover space rental expenses and to compensate the facilitating teacher. Let's practice valuing one another as teachers and the knowledge that we share.
