We are so honored to be hosting Brian Campbell in just a few short weeks! If you’re looking for more training, knowledge, a different perspective, to sharpen or refine skill sets and participate in the powerful experience that is group learning — this three day workshop will thrill you!
Taught by Forrest Yoga Guardian Brian Campbell, this 20 hour functional anatomy course is specifically designed for yoga teachers. It is highly experiential, combining anatomical instruction with an emphasis on sharpening each teacher's perceptual skills to better assess the needs of their students in the environment of a yoga class.
The art of assessment is a life-long process by which a yoga teacher gains mastery and dep...th as an instructor. Trainees will learn some of the short-cuts to assessment in this fun and highly informative class about the interrelationship of the Rule of Four: Biomechanics, Biochemistry, Scar Tissue, and Emotional Blockage. These four elements define the healing process for us and for our students. As yoga teachers, we are in a unique position to streamline that healing process by learning to perceive each aspect of the Rule of Four. This is our governing principle as we learn the anatomy of the human structure and tie it together with practical information to speed healing when possible and explain why when it is not appropriate to hurry it.
In this course, trainees will learn to perceive:
• How our Emotional Blockage expresses itself as posture and postural deviation.
• How our Scar Tissue affects flexibility, even at a distance from an injury.
• How genetics influences our Biomechanics and how to tell when it doesn't.
• How our Biochemistry (for better of for worse) can determine the pleasure of our practice.
This course is open to yoga practitioners (of all disciplines), including those not enrolled in the Forrest Yoga Teacher Training happening simultaneously. No previous knowledge or application needed.
May 15, 16 and 17 with a 90-minute break for lunch.
