TEACHER TRAINING INTENSIVE!


November 2nd-8th, 2020 

Cost: $195

18 CEU credits for Yoga Alliance

As a yoga teacher, you walk a fine line...

 

Students come to you before and after class wanting answers about how to deal with their injuries.

 

When this happens, you might feel pressure to "fix them." After all, you want your students to heal and feel well. 

 

The problem is that it’s not your role to assess, diagnose, or treat injuries.​

 

  • So, how can you best help your students without treading outside of your role?
  • How do you know when to refer your students to an MD, a PT, or other professional? 
  • What's the best way  to help your students who are in the midst of injury?

 

I offer my recommendations on these

questions and more in my new training!

will teach you:


How to communicate your exact

role as a yoga teacher when

students ask about their injuries

The most up-to-date practices

for preventing and managing common yoga injuries 

How to give verbal cues,

manual adjustments, & sequences

that do not worsen your students’

injuries – or create them.

This is one of my most practical,

popular teacher training intensives and

I’m so happy to share it with you!

Three Live Calls 

On Friday, Saturday, and

Sunday you can choose from

two live calls times: Either 10am or 4pm Pacific time.

 

You'll meet Jason on Zoom for an asana practice and Q&A.

Here's what you will learn:

1. Keep Your Knees Safe in Yoga

Understanding and managing knee challenges is a fundamental requirement for teaching yoga in modern times.

 

Highlights from Day 1 include:

  • Techniques and anatomical foundation to minimize knee injuries in class— and skillfully respond to students who have these challenges
  • How to maximize safety in all six “families of postures” that affect the knees, including the Pigeon and Bow Pose family
  • How to modify common postures like  Lotus that students often struggle with

2. Keep Your Sacroiliac and Hips Safe in Yoga

Sacroilliac pain, hip conditions, and hamstring attachment injuries are far too common in modern yoga. The focus of Day 2 will help you minimize these challenges in your classes and understand how to respond to them when they arise.

 

Highlights from Day 2 include

  • The anatomy of the sacroiliac joint and a 5-step process for minimizing injuries in this region
  • The anatomy of the labrum and hip socket—and how to minimize the potential for labrum injuries
  • How to respond to hamstring attachment injuries in a safe, responsible way

 

3. Keep Your Lower Back Safe in Yoga

According to the American Chiropractic Association, experts estimate that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some time in their lives -- which means that many, many students will come to you asking about back pain.

 

Highlights from Day 3 include:

  • Learning to provide general yoga advice to someone that has lumbar disk challenges and wants to practice safely
  • How maximize safety in sustainability in forward bends, twists, backbends, and side-bends for students of all levels
  • A demystified, accessible overview of lower-back anatomy

4. Keep Your Shoulders Safe in Yoga

The highly mobile and beautifully intricate nature of the shoulder girdle makes it one of the most vulnerable parts of your body—especially for flow or vinyasa yogis. The nuances of the shoulder girdle also make giving accurate, scientific cues very challenging. This combination of challenges leads to an excessive number of injuries and long-term wear and tear. Until now.

 

Highlights from Day 4 include:

  • Finally, coming to a simple, reasonable conclusion for how to do Chaturanga in the most safe and sustainable way—and what to do when this posture still doesn’t work for everyone
  • Learning what Dr. Paul Roache, Orthopedic Surgeon and shoulder specialist, calls the “Shoulder Safe” Positions and how to use this information to create shoulder stability
  • How to minimize—and manage—the most common shoulder challenges that students experience 

5. Live calls with Jason

On each live call, you will have one hour to ask Jason questions and an hour of active asana practice. These calls are a great opportunity to process and discuss the information you've watched on the videos and to put it into practice.

Your life before Better Way to Flow:

  • You frequently feel anxious when students ask you questions about their injuries

 

  • You’re not sure how to set the boundaries when dealing with students' injuries

 

  • You’re concerned about students getting injured in your class – or that your class might exacerbate their injuries

 

  • You wish you had more depth of knowledge about yoga anatomy and related injuries

Your life after Better Way to Flow:

  • You know your role as a yoga teacher and how to give your students guidance & direction
     
  • You feel confident about which situations you can offer help to students and when you need to refer them to a medical professional
     
  • You’re knowledgeable about the anatomy underlying common yoga-related injuries
     
  • You understand how to structure vinyasa classes so that they create balance in the body and don’t aggravate commonly vulnerable areas

Hey -- I'm Jason.


I’ve been teaching yoga for more than 20 years teaching yoga and training yoga teachers. 

 

For the past 10 years, I’ve honed my approach to yoga anatomy by looking to peers outside of the yoga community, in the fields of physical therapy, orthopedics, traumatology, and sports medicine.

 

In this training, I shed light on the fine line you need to walk as a yoga teacher to offer your students the help that they need without diagnosing.

 

To do this, you need to be intimately familiar with common yoga injuries, why they happen, and how you can offer sequences and modifications that will lessen the probability of creating or worsening injuries.

 

This work is ongoing for all of us because no two bodies are the same. But that’s also what makes it so interesting and fun to share!

Frequently asked questions

CAN I REALLY DO THIS?

WHEN DOES THE COURSE START AND END?

WHY ISN'T THE WHOLE COURSE DELIVERED VIA LIVESTREAM?

The bulk of the course is delivered through pre-recorded videos. We deliver our courses this way for two reasons: First, it gives you the flexibility to move through the content on your own timeline. Second, it allows you to join from a different time zone. And third, it ensures high quality video and no interruptions -- the last thing we want is for you to experience a disruption in the internet connection during a class or lecture! 

 

However, Jason does conduct 3 live calls via Zoom on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. You can choose from a 10:00am-12:00pm Pacific call time or 4:00-6:00pm Pacific. This allows you to ask questions.
