Event description

Description

We are pleased to begin the new year with our first State Meeting and Yoga Therapy workshop on the Gold Coast. Thank you for your interest, we would love to have you join our friendly growing Sangha!
Yoga Australia would like to thank the Gold Coast Yoga Centre for being our host venue and is also pleased to welcome our presenter Maria Kirsten for the yoga therapy workshop.
Come and join us as this event will leave you feeling alive and looking forward to your senior years with enthusiasm! We will open with the meeting followed by meet/greet tea break and presentation as follows;
Yoga Therapy Workshop Topic;
Yoga for Seniors: the principles of teaching older students in a way that is empowering, accessible, safe and fun, and that doesn’t make them feel like a bunch of geriatrics.
About the Presenter;
Maria Kirsten has been teaching accessible yoga to grownups and beginners in Lennox Head since 2000. She is trusted by local health care providers as an experienced teacher to whom they can safely refer their clients. Maria teaches regular Yoga for Grownups and Yoga for Older Grownups classes at the surf club in Lennox Head, and works privately as a Yoga Therapist and Occupational Therapist.
Maria is committed to making yoga safe and accessible for everyone, especially people who thought they could never do yoga. Classes with Maria are anatomically and functionally based, very visual and fun. Students leave class with a better understanding of their bodies and minds, and feeling empowered to proactively manage their mental and physical health.
As a lecturer in yoga asana, anatomy and therapy on several Yoga Teacher Training courses, Maria's mission in life is to prepare new teachers and health professionals to teach yoga in a way that supports the individual goals and needs of every student. Maria teaches teachers how to make the powerful poses and practices of yoga safe, simple and accessible to all. In response to the need for further anatomical and therapeutic training, she has collaborated with Sydney based teacher Judy Krupp to create an Extended Learning and Yoga Therapy course for new teachers. She also teaches anatomy based workshops in the Byron Bay area, and Yoga Therapy, Yoga for Seniors, and Yoga for Mental Health in Japan.

Maria is a dynamic speaker and presenter that can adapt to any audience. Her Yoga For Grownups DVD is popular among students, teachers and therapists.
