Full Weekend Yoga Intensive with Doug Keller – East Meets West Yoga Center
July 26, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - July 28, 2013 @ 5:00 pm
Event: Full Weekend Yoga Intensive with Doug Keller
FULL WEEKEND YOGA THERAPY PROGRAM: Friday, July 26 through Sunday, July 28, 2013, 2013
ALL WORKSHOPS ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Must have yoga experience to attend asana practices.
The training will provide a firm foundation in the most vital areas of training for a therapeutic perspective on teaching yoga safely and beneficially, touching upon issues in both the upper (shoulders) and lower (feet, knees, hips, low back) body. We’ll address the following areas:
1. Assessment tools for evaluating therapeutic problems and obstacles — both for individuals and in a group setting.
2. Anatomy/Kinesiology/ Functional Anatomy: study of the major muscles affecting health, as well as the smaller muscles and tendons associated with chronic problems. What poses best address problems in major muscle areas, and what sequencing of poses — and points of alignment and actions — can best address these obstacles?
3. Asana Alignment and Action — Theory and Practice: alignment oriented training in the major classes of asanas, and how to teach and demonstrate these points effectively to a group.
4. Common Therapeutic Problem Areas — the common biomechanical therapeutic problems in muscles and joints — feet and ankles, knees, hips, sacrum and SI joints, spine (all areas — lumbar, thoracic and cervical), shoulder girdle, elbows and hands.
Doug Keller’s background reflects a lifelong commitment to the vast field of yoga. After receiving degrees in philosophy from Georgetown and Fordham University and teaching philosophy at a college level, he pursued a practical experience of yoga at the ashram Gurudev Siddha Peeth in India — which in turn also led him to the practice of hatha yoga as part of his overall experience of yoga. From years of study, practice and teaching, he has produced widely used and highly respected books on asana, yoga as therapy, pranayama and yoga philosophy, and he teaches hatha yoga workshops and trainings in both North America and Europe. He has been a regular columnist for Yoga International Magazine for three years, and is also writing on therapeutic topics for Yoga Journal. His popularity as a teacher comes from his ability to deepen people’s experience of yoga through clear, simple and direct instructions that are easy to practice and remember. And he does it with lightness and light.
