CE Workshop | How to Find New Clients Online

with Mado Hesselink (E-RYT 500, YACEP). Connecting with the people who can benefit from your work online is easier than ever once you understand the three basics to getting noticed in the virtual space.

Panel Discussion | Evolution of Yoga Summit and Blueprint, Part 3: Cultural Appropriation

with with Susanna Barkataki (E-RYT 500, RCYT, RPYT, YACEP, C-IAYT), Rina Deshpande (Ed.M., MS.T., E-RYT 500), Kelley Palmer, Luvena Rangel Krishnamurthy, and Dr. Tria Blu Wakpa. With the confluence of Yoga teachers of various lineages and cultures, the Cultural Appropriation Track at this conference invites practitioners to explore questions and nuances raised within the context of Yoga and cultural appropriation. We will consider the fine line between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation. We will also assess the impacts within the Indian and South Asian diasporic context as well as within Black and Indigenous Native American cultures. Cultural appropriation involves a degeneration of primordial cultural rituals and wisdom, so we will also explore the depth, creativity, and richness of indigenous rites and practices that are often missing from Modern Postural Yoga practices. We will explore and practice restoration of ancestral wisdom and other Yogic cultural elements.

CE Workshop | Mantra Mālā – Mantra as Prāṇāyāma, Part 2

with Mirabelle D'Cunha. Traditionally in India, mantra is the first introduction and practice of pranayama. In each Mantra Mālā offering, yoga lovers will befriend a Sanskrit Saṃskṛtá alphabet in its physical form, learn how it sounds, and what the esoteric significance of the alphabet is. We will also look at how it occurs in a few familiar yoga words. Learn a mantra and how to chant it with correct Vedic intonation, so the sound strikes in the body and energetically precisely where it should, bringing the visceral magic and abundance of this practice alive. Please note: this event is in a meeting format. Participants and the presenter are able to see each other and communicate in an open forum.

CE Workshop Series | From Doing Yoga to Being Yoga: Embodying Three Sacred Teachings of Our Tradition, Embracing Transformation

with Barrie Risman (E-RYT 500, YACEP). We can "do" yoga for years, but it's only when we infuse our practice with the wisdom of the tradition that we fully embody yoga's transformative power. This is when we go from simply doing yoga to being yoga. Inspired by presenter Barrie Risman’s best-selling book, Evolving Your Yoga: Ten Principles for Enlightened Practice, this three-part series explores powerful and foundational understandings that will unlock greater meaning for your practice and teaching, and profoundly shift the way you approach and share yoga. Each session includes contemplative inquiry, meditation and breath work practices, and concrete, practical ways to bring the wisdom of yoga into your classes. Part 1 focuses on embracing transformation.
