General - Theories of Movement - what we should and shouldn't teach our students
Tutor: Peter Blackaby
Date: 23rd February 2019
Time: 10:00 - 15:45
Location: Adastra Hall
Type of Event: Open Day
Places Available: 1
These days in yoga there are a wide variety of styles and techniques for students to choose from.
How do we decide whether some are more suitable than others?
This day will explore the theme of ‘natural human movement’ so we can form rational decisions about what is and what isn’t safe to teach.
We will also explore the anatomical variations in people that might make certain postures more or less accessible to individuals.
Peter has been a student of Yoga for over 28 years and teaching for over 20 years, originally as an Iyengar teacher. His subsequent studies in Osteopathy and meetings with other yoga teachers led him to change his direction, pursuing a more bio-mechanically friendly approach to asana work. Recently this has developed into a broader ’humanistic’ perspective, with the intention of making yoga more accessible to the western mind by grounding the physical, physiological and psychological effects of practice in a rational context.
