Anatomy of the Shoulder
with Julia Tirabassi
Demystifying the Shoulder Girdle
Monday, July 11 from 10-3:30
with Julia Tirabassi
Join us for an afternoon dedicated to teacher's developing their practice and polishing their pose knowledge in a cooperative, communal setting. We will offer a 4-6 hour Teacher's Toolbox seminar in which we cover a topic of your choice - Julia Tirabassi will guide us and help us to further study the shoulder girdle, which would include detailing asanas like Adho Mukha Svanasana, Adho Mukha Vrksasana, Pincha Mayurasana, Chaturanga Dandasana and Salamba Sarvangasana. During the workshop we will :
* Review of essential anatomy for the shoulder girdle;
* Fundamental principles of anatomical alignment and safety;
* Careful postural analysis of Adho Mukha Svanasana, Adho Mukha Vrksasana, Pincha Mayurasana, Chaturanga Dandasana and Salamba Sarvangasana;
* Considerations of various body types, modifications for injury, and individualizing poses to meet students where they are;
* Effective hands-on assists for clarity of communication;
* Guidelines for safe + intelligent progressive sequencing.
This material would offer support to teachers of all experience levels - from brand-new Teacher Training graduates, to full-time career yogis - in their quest for honed classroom skills, deeper anatomical knowledge, and sparks of creative inspiration.

Teacher Training Testimonials
What some of our recent TT's have been telling us.....
Jen, this was truly a life changing experience for me and I can’t thank you enough! You, Greg, and our whole group of teacher trainees, are such amazing people -I loved getting to know everyone and I am so sad its coming to an end – but I am more eager than ever to continue to learn.The yoga loft will always hold a special place in my heart and I look forward to continuing there and growing my practice and maybe even filling in a few classes here and there J I have never been to a studio that cares for its students the way you all do. I was never put at a wall to practice ANYTHING until the yoga loft, and I have tried many different studios. Meg
I want to say that you, Jen, having so much enthusiasm and faith in us as students and teachers was helpful beyond words. You were so confident in us, in me, that I in turn felt confident! Encouraging us to just go teach either in training or a class at the studio was so helpful and so supportive. You are so welcoming and just becoming a part of this awesome yoga community is worth the training. Thank you!
Anyone who feels called to study yoga, must talk to Jen Ryan about the Yoga Teacher Training program she offers. Jen brings her whole being to her teaching; she embodies yoga on all levels. Her brilliance, generosity, compassion, teaching experience and many years of study and practice are evident from the first class of the Yoga Loft Teacher Training program. Yogic practice and philosophy itself is a beautiful but challenging body of knowledge; Jen makes the study of yoga accessible and provides a sanctuary at the Yoga Loft as she guides her students on the yogic teacher path. Much gratitude to you Jen! Namaste, Judy Class of 2016
