Restorative Yoga &

Hands-On Healing

Saturday, February 3, 2018 @ Shakti in Ballard

Join Jodi and Daniela for a relaxing evening of Restorative Yoga and Hands-On Healing. Jodi will guide you through a restorative yoga practice, while Daniela offers hands-on healing as you rest and relax in each pose. 

Restorative Yoga practice is known to induce a relaxation, or parasympathetic, response.  It is in this state that the body’s systems – such as digestion, immune, sleep – wake cycle and endocrine system – function optimally, bringing a state of inner balance and harmony to the body and mind. 

Energy healing is a practice where the practitioner uses his/her hands to channel healing energy into the body. The practitioner is also intuitively guided to certain areas for focused work and the energy flows to other areas the need healing or balancing. 

The Restorative Yoga practice, coupled with Daniela’s hands-on energetic work, will be a profound experience and a time for deep relaxation and healing.

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training

February 9 – 11, 2018

with Jodi Boone & Heather Danso

Restorative yoga is considered the true antidote to stress because it allows you to relax deeply with awareness. Relaxing with awareness is the key to bringing the mind-body into a state of balance or homeostasis, similar to the effect of meditation. It’s easy to be swept away by the demands of modern life. Today’s pace of life means we are often in a state of high alert, causing our bodies to release stress hormones that stimulate the ‘fight or flight’ response. This affects our ability to sleep soundly, digest our food, focus, feel grounded, and even our ability to conceive a child.
 
Come experience the profound, yet subtle power of restorative yoga in this program, and learn to craft thoughtful sequences for yourself and others.

Offered through Be Luminous Yoga, but held at Two Dog Yoga Studio in Lake City. This Restorative Training is also part of Be Luminous’ 500-Hour Training. You don’t have to be a student of Be Luminous to take the training, but in the future, these hours could apply toward their 500-Hour Level Certification.

Mentorship Program

Last year, we introduced the Mentorship Program, where students who completed the Restorative Training had the opportunity to assist Heather and me in Restorative & Yin classes that we teach around the city at various studios. We will share about this program on the final day of the training. If you choose to do this, it can be done at your own pace and at class times that work for you. This allows you additional practical, hands-on experience in a real-class setting. By completing this 4-class program, you will earn a certificate of 24 hours of training, by assisting four additional classes and receiving feedback. 

I feel so honored that Heather Danso will assist the training. Heather brings much depth and knowledge to the training, with her background in Feldenkrais, yoga and dance.

Senior Yoga / Chair Yoga Teacher Training

April 20 – 22, 2018

with Jodi Boone & Assisted by Heather Danso

 

 

It’s hard to define “senior” these days. Often we think of seniors as being of a certain age or age range. But today, a senior person cannot be defined by his or her chronological age. In the Senior Yoga classes I have taught, participants have ranged in age from 55 to 104. A person who is 75 can be absolutely age-defying, extremely active and physically fit, as well as able to attend a general hatha yoga mat class. Often though, people come to Senior / Chair Yoga classes because they have mobility issues, very common as we age, of course, as well as with conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, joint replacements, stiffness and other often age-related medical conditions. 

Working with this population is a beautiful gift and very inspiring. They are so eager to learn yoga, for so many it is new to them. Time and time again, participants are amazed at how the yoga makes them feel in their bodies – they notice more mobility and relaxation after just one session. Although, Senior Yoga is wonderful for seniors, it is an appropriate practice for anyone needing a gentle approach to yoga, as well as the support of a chair. 

This training focuses on teaching chair yoga classes, as well as classes that combine both chair and mat yoga classes. You will learn how to teach people with different levels of mobility and health issues in an inclusive and safe way.

We will focus on age-appropriate movement, for the aging body, as well as taking into consideration what may be going on mentally and emotionally as we age. We will discuss in detail the most common health issues we see among students who attend senior / chair yoga classes, including high blood pressure, Parkinson’s Disease, previous stroke, joint replacement, partial hearing and sight loss, arthritis, osteoporosis and poor balance.

Learning Objectives
 
•Teaching chair yoga classes to seniors
 
•Teaching chair & mat combined yoga classes to seniors
 
•The art of sequencing these two types of classes
 
•Functional Anatomy
 
•How to work with students who have special physical needs, injuries & health conditions
 
•Touch and assisting seniors
 
•Facilitating a sharing circle to promote inclusivity and community

About Jodi

In 2001, while teaching yoga at the YMCA, Jodi met a student with Parkinson’s Disease. His doctor had advised him to try yoga. Because of the severity of his Parkinson’s, it wasn’t the best fit for him to be in a group class setting. At that time, Jodi was a new teacher and was unfamiliar with Parkinson’s Disease and the benefits yoga could have. But, she believed in yoga and knew there must be benefits, so she began researching, and later began working privately with the student in his home. Over the months that Jodi met with him, she was amazed at how much he looked forward to the sessions. He relaxed during the sessions, and was able to practice a full chair yoga sequence that was tailored to meet his needs. Some years later, Jodi lived in Bend, and while there, began teaching yoga to seniors at the local senior center. In 2013, Jodi completed the Silver Age Yoga Teacher Training. Since 2014, Jodi has offered her Senior Yoga Teacher Training as part of a 500-hour teacher training program at Spirit Yoga in Osaka, Japan. Today, Jodi frequently teaches yoga to seniors living at University House in Wallingford, as well as privately.
