EXPLORING THE INTELLIGENCE OF MOVEMENT

YOGA / ANATOMY / MOVEMENT

THE THREE FOUNDING PRINCIPLES THAT DEFINE THE PEDAGOGICAL APPROACH TO OUR ADVANCED WORKSHOPS FOR PROFESSIONALS IN PHYSICAL DISCIPLINES.


This training is designed specifically for professionals working in physical disciplines, such as coaches, yoga teachers, rehearsal instructors in circus and dance, etc.

In order to create a dialogue between yoga and science, certain workshops may be offered jointly by two instructors: a yoga teacher and a certified anatomy and / or biology professional (kinesiologist, chiropractor, cardiologist, orthopedist, etc.). When presented jointly, yoga principles are revisited from the collaborating professional’s point of view.

This approach doubles the knowledge base and allows us to examine practices specific to each discipline.

LIVING IN THE FIELD OF THE SOUL:  Yoga as a science and an art

Yogacharya BKS Iyengar interpreted the Bhagavad Gita through the 8 limbs of Yoga; the body being a field, the soul as the farmer of that field.  To every pose he brought both a scientific inquiry and a poetic interpretation.  As practitioners we may choose to study asana, pranayama–all limbs of Yoga–as bodily, even medical treatments.  Or reflecting on creative images, we may contact the inner levels of our being through the practice.

In this workshop we will explore these different ways, seeing where they touch.

Brooke Myers – 30 Years of Teaching

Brooke Myers has studied yoga since 1973 and taught Iyengar Yoga since 1987. She has trained many times in India with the Iyengar family. Her primary teachers are Geeta Iyengar and the late Mary Dunn.

Brooke’s social conscience informs her teaching. “Yoga should be for everyone,” she says. “We have to make a real effort to go where the need is.” Her outreach efforts have taken her to psychiatric hospitals and a drug rehabilitation center. She co-taught the Institute’s HIV/AIDS class for many years. Brooke has taught special classes for knee and back problems, depression, and menopause.

The spiritual aspect of Iyengar Yoga inspires her teaching style, which is simple, reverent, and aspiring. “To motivate people, you have to first give them the experience. I can’t talk to them about their breath or their inner self. I have to show them that if they learn to come back into their heels and lift their chest, they won’t feel so depressed. I have to find physical ways to show them spiritual and emotional states.”

Brooke’s previous career was in radical experimental dance and theater. Along with political causes, she is active in animal rescue.

“I’m still looking for ways to use yoga to bridge the gulf between all kinds of people,” she says. “It should be possible—one of the meanings of yoga is union.”
