Join advanced certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher Amanda Moran in a weekend immersion on the art of hands on assists. In this 2 day Immersion for Yoga teachers you will overcome hesitancy and gain confidence in safely offering the gift of hands on assists, while teaching either a led class or a private session. The immersion will explore the scriptural basis for a sound teacher student relationship in which both parties are elevated and the benefits of practice are increased, the physical dynamics for safe assisting, and the energetic alignment structures underpinning this ancient art. Amanda will guide you through a vinyasa class incorporating sthiram and sukham, or steady and joyful assists, in surya namaskar, standing poses, arm balances, inversions, backbends and forward bends.
* Assists for basic poses and students* Assisting advanced poses* Assessing how best to serve the specific student* Assists for privates and individuals vs for large groups

Reignite your passion for your practice and teaching!
Step out of your comfort zone and explore weaving the ancient wisdom of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras through your teaching and practice by bringing yoga’s timeless teaching to life through the lens of Lotus Flows’ dynamic and devotional dance and discipline of creative sequencing.
Jasmine Tarkeshi and Kate Duyn will bring the wisdom and creativity from their years of personal practice, study and teaching to facilitate a space for disciplined practice: Tapas, svadyaya: self study and inquiry and Isvarapranidhana: surrender and service. You will be inspired and initiated into becoming a more confident, creative and compassionate teacher as you deepen your devotion to your personal Sadhana and self study and be encouraged to teach and practice through the lens of your own lived experience.
This weekend intensive and 300 hour advanced module focuses on the architecture of Lotus Flow and allowing your personal expression of asana and Dharma of the Sutras to shine through. The Yoga Sutras are time tested recipes that work, while our Lotus Flow Vinyasa allows us to throw in whatever we have in the cosmic kitchen of the moment and create something new. Together, we can anchor our practice and teaching to integrate both sides of our brain towards Unity.

This advanced training explores the therapeutic use of yoga on the path to healing trauma and enhancing mental health. In this two-day training designed for yoga and meditation teachers, clinicians, educators, direct service providers, and experienced students, we will explore the vital role that the facilitator can play in not only preventing harm but empowering practitioners in regulating trauma symptoms and feeling embodied.
Trauma is a common experience for adults and children in American communities, and it is widespread in the lives of people with mental and substance use disorders. For this reason, the need to address trauma is an essential part of effective behavioral health care and an integral part of the healing and recovery process. Can trauma-informed, mindfulness-based yoga improve mental health and mitigate the effects of trauma? The use of evidence-based techniques from yoga and mindfulness to aid in the recovery of PTSD is a promising area of yoga therapy, where research points toward several mechanisms through which yoga can reduce symptoms of PTSD and support those experiencing depression, anxiety, addiction, stress, or overwhelm. As yoga teachers, we must have a foundational understanding of how we can support practitioners on their healing journey.
