Continuing Education Skill and Drills

Rocky Heron - Detroit, MI
March 31 2019

Yoga is evolving, and it’s time to upgrade your practice and teaching!

Are you interested in learning more about your body and functional movement?

Looking to empower yourself with the skills to evolve your practice and teaching in the direction of diverse and intelligent strength? Are you ready to break free of the box of traditional pose alignment to map your own creative pathways into increased mobility and movement possibilities?

If so, then you are ready for Skill and Drills!

Join international master instructor Rocky Heron for an illuminating and transformative learning opportunity. The key to physical health is diversity of movement. All too often we exchange habitual movement patterns off the mat for likewise limiting patterns in our practice. In Skills and Drills we will use traditional yoga asana and transitions as a springboard to explore your bodies potential to move, and achieve optimal mobility in all directions. We will pull, jump, bounce, lift, tone, stabilize, and play our way into greater possibilities, unlocking the keys to success in your physical practice, and the power within you to express and enjoy your body!

Tuition covers full weekend workshop.

Expand! - In this teacher training we will unpack the techniques explored throughout the weekend and explore the principles of biomechanics necessary to create your own “Skills and Drills” for yourself and your students. The evolution of yoga and movement practices requires us teachers to understand what it is we are actually facilitating in our classes, and be empowered with the knowledge to map our own opportunities for increased mobility and strength. Our bodies don’t know the difference between a yoga pose, or any other modality of movement. Our bodies respond and adapt to the forces we encounter and introduce. By learning step by step techniques to unlock powerful adaptations in our tissues we can not only rehabilitate old injuries and achieve our movement goals, but we can expand our capacity to create resilient and functionally powerful bodies and minds. If you are ready to crack the code of yoga asana and develop the keys to innovate your own effective strategies for movement, you don’t want to miss this potent learning opportunity!

In this teacher immersion you will receive:

  • The easy to follow formula for creating your own pose drills and pose modifications
  • Applied Anatomy of common Yoga Poses and methods to de-mystify your understanding of them
  • Innovative drills to enhance the safety and potency of your students movements
  • Biomechanic strategies to enable healthy tissue adaptations
  • Scientific Strategies to assist in the reparation of injury and bring more of your musculature online

“I would definitely recommend this program, and I already have. It was top notch in quality and quantity of material, as well as in support and openness and communication. Noah’s unique experience has produced an unparalleled leader, facilitator, and guide. Lessons learned in our training modules have extended far beyond the scope of yoga into life and relating to others in a more effective manner. I received SO MUCH, This training goes above and beyond for any student wanting to deepen their skills, gain confidence, and reach a new level of mastery in yoga.”

“Noah is inspiring and exhibits an unparalleled mastery of teaching. For some time now, I have been contemplating the notion, “be impeccable with your word.” I tried to think of people who embody this and would often come up empty until I met Noah. Noah is careful with his words, exhibits accuracy, accountability, and thoughtful articulation. These are important qualities in an effective leader. When Noah speaks, people listen – and they take it to heart. Along with that, he also embodies creativity, playfulness, humor, sensitivity, and ardor. All of these qualities make for a very well-rounded, inspiring leader and I feel honored to have received guidance and to have learned such a great deal, not just about yoga, but about life.”
