Event description


We're super excited to announce that Joan Hyman (USA) will be back to Melbourne for the 2nd time offering a 3-day 25 Hours Advanced Yoga Teacher Training program in March.

Her teaching is authentic, world class and inspiring. She is often referred to as a Teacher's Teacher.

Joan has this incredible ability to make complex and advanced asanas seem easy and she teaches in a way that suddenly everything makes sense.

Joan Hyman's grounded teaching style seamlessly supports her students as they emerge from their practice with the rich and bright energy that yoga has to offer. It is here that the space is created for her students to deepen their personal journey while aligning with the teachings of true yogic traditions.

Joan’s teachings come from an organic and intuitive place, as she draws upon the combination Ayurveda, meditation, as well as the studies of Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga. An authentic modern day yogi, Joan's love and devotion show up in her practice and through her teachings.

With over twenty years of experience leading retreats, trainings, and workshops worldwide - fifteen of which as a distinguished YogaWorks senior teacher - Joan recently brought her expertise to Wanderlust.

DAY ONE (2nd March 2018 Fri)

10:15am - 11:45am: “Twisting and Cleansing (Detox)” Masterclass

Twisting is not only a great way to cleanse the body, but when done on a deeper level, it becomes a mental and spiritual cleanse. We will stabilize our core muscles first before we move into twists ringing out toxicity in our bodies and mind. The result of this type of practice is a calmer, more stable energy that creates a space for a quieting pranayama practice at the end. This class will be taught as a vinyasa flow class ending with quieting pranayama and a lng deep relaxation.

We'll discuss yoga classes in the Western world today, including what an advanced practice might look like and what creates advancement in your practice?

Beginner yogis are a unique population. They are also the key to building your clientele as a yoga teacher.

Adjust with confidence in a safe and effective manner so your students will leave with an understanding of how yoga works on their bodies and feel transformed!

DAY THREE (4th March 2018 Sun)

11:15am - 12:45pm: “Unlocking the Psoas” Masterclass

The psoas muscle is the deepest muscle in our bodies. It's sometimes referred to as the muscle of our soul. This core-stabilizing muscle that runs from our trunk to the hipbone affects mobility, structural balance, joint function, flexibility, and much more. In addition to its function to help keep the body upright and moving, it affects two of our most vital systems: digestion and breath. In this workshop, you will learn where your psoas is and how to unlock this deep muscle creating numerous benefits throughout your body. There will be a brief anatomy lesson learning the psychological benefits of releasing this muscle before a deep two- hour practice opening the abdomen region and releasing the lower back and hips. Open to all levels.

**********One Hour Lunch Break**********

1:45pm - 3:45pm: How to access the Subtle Body Workshop

The pranayama kosha is where our vital energy lives. As yogis, we try to access these layers to build more prana so we can increase our vitality. Bandhas are the valves that help us regulate our energy and vayus are the channels that prana flows through. Each vayu moves through a different part of our body. Clear channels lead to radiance.

Learn how the chakras relate to our physiology and affect our behavior and patterns in our lives. Understanding this will help you create healthier relationships with your students, deepen your sequencing skills, and ultimately increase your energy and awareness on every level!

• Design a pranayama practice
• Understand the psycho somatic effects of the chakras • Learn about the nadis and bandhas

Restoratives create the rest and relaxation response in our nervous sytems which help us heal deeply. Many of us are use to being stressed and being on the go, and because of it, experience anxiety, sleep disorders, injury, and sickness. Restoratives can help bring the body back to a deep sense of healing where we begin to repair our nervous system and can induce a natural state of energy where the system can repair improving sleep, inspiration, health, digestion and increased vitality. You will need an eye pillow and a desire to lay down and rest! All levels welcome!
