“The human midline is an embryonic expression of aliveness that is manifest in our tissues longer before we must orient ourselves in the world. We are born knowing center.”
Mary Bond in Your Body Mandala: Posture as a Path to Presence 2018
Join us for the second in a series of four “Teaching Yoga Online” workshops in 2021!
Contemplative practices like meditation and pranayama can cultivate our awareness, clarify our consciousness, and develop our ability to witness experience. These practices are about going “inside.” Yet as we all pivot more towards online interaction and employment, our attentions get pulled more “outside.” How do we as yoga teachers and practitioners navigate these polarities?
When taught online, pranayama and meditation techniques can require new considerations for language, space and silence. This experiential Zoom workshop will support creating effective space for both practicing and leading these more subtle yoga practices.
During this two-hour Zoom workshop, we will:
Discuss basic anatomy about the human nervous system and perception
Review principles for practicing and teaching Meditation and Pranayama
Explore and practice ideas for “Holding Space” in cyberspace
Have practice time to “fill your cup” with Pranayama and Meditation, lead by William
This program is open to anyone who is practicing or leading contemplative practices online, including yoga teachers (fresh and seasoned), fitness professionals, and personal trainers.
This workshop earns 2 YA CEUs.
*Please note: For health and safety concerns, this program is being held virtually via Zoom*

Statement of Faith
If we are somehow endowed with participation of some kind of divinity, then we are indeed special, and should treat each other with the respect and dignity this demands.
If, on the other hand, we are the accidental outcome of blind natural processes in a cosmos that is indifferent to us being here at all, then we are indeed special, and should treat each other with a tenderness and respect befitting such serendipitous surprises.
