In case you didn’t notice, it’s September! If that was news, you might have also missed that it’s National Yoga Month. Whether you’re already celebrating or need a reason to put your yoga party hat on, you should probably know about The Yoga as Transformation free online event happening this weekend. Online yoga conferences are all the rage these days and we get it. They’re convenient, they’re packed with information, and they’re even cooler when they’re free. If you’re looking for a chance to go “back to school” this is good place to start. Did we mention it’s free?
Hosted by Yoga U Online, the The Yoga as Transformation online conference will take place over the course of Labor Day weekend, from September 5th through the 7th, and will feature over 30 talks, classes, and yoga practices from teachers like Judith Hanson Lasater, Tias Little, Colleen Saidman Yee, Alan Finger, Cyndi Lee, Maty Ezraty, and Natasha Rizopoulos. The 3-day curriculum will all fall under three main themes: Deepen Your Practice, Get Inspired, and Explore the Therapeutic Applications of Yoga.
Here’s more info via the Yoga U press release:
For most people, no matter where you are in your practice or teaching, one of the biggest challenges isn’t Eka Hasta Vrksasana or other fancy, yoga selfie suitable poses; it’s simply finding the time to regularly return to our mat and deepen our practice. And while workshops and retreats are a great way to dive deep and refresh your yoga knowledge, let’s face it, they can be a bit hard on the rent money for next month. Yoga as Transformation provides the chance to reconnect with your yoga practice and broaden your knowledge within the setting of your own home, without putting a strain on your credit card.
A sample of what the classes will include:
The Yoga as Transformation workshop will also focus on how to take the depth you’ll gain during this weekend back into your regular life. Classes such as Judith Hanson Lasater’s All Alone By Myself: Developing a Home Practice in the Midst of a Busy Life address how we can identify what’s keeping us from the mat and how we can move beyond those obstacles to reinvigorate our practice. Colleen Saidman Yee will be sharing experiences from her own journey in an interview titled Yoga for Life: The Healing Power of Practice.
And heads up, there will also be two live Q&As, one with Judith Hanson Lasater, Sunday, Sept. 6th, and one with Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee, Monday, Sept. 7th. To learn more and sign up head over to their registration page.*
And stay tuned because the online multi-day multi-teacher yoga conference/workshop model seems to be the new big thing.
