Vinyasa on The Edge
What makes us doubt ourselves, our beliefs, and our abilities? Come on an adventurous journey with Chris Courtney, who channels his experiences as a mountain guide and yoga teacher into an exploration of believing in ourselves, our beliefs, and our abilities.
We start by giving ourselves permission to not be perfect, then he’ll guide you through an ashtanga-inspired vinyasa flow in which you’ll safely find your own edge, where we’ll break down some challenging poses to enable you to sneak across any barriers to a new level of self-belief….laughing all the way! (Asana and laughter)
Adjustments and Assists For Yoga Teachers
Review and learn how to give gentle, safe and supportive hands-on assists which help students to more fully feel the energy of each asana – all while honoring and supporting their breath and intentions. For more information on Chris’ approach to yoga assists, see his article on Elephant Journal titled “Yoga Adjustments or Yoga Assists?’ http://www.chriscourtneyyoga.com/?p=158 (Asana and discussion)*
Yoga For Runners and Cyclists
A workshop focused on the specific needs of runners and cyclists. We build a strong mind-body-breath connection as we flow through a series of asanas and fascia freeing movements to allow you to run/cycle more fluidly while preventing injuries and feeling great!
Yoga For Regular Guys
Can’t touch your toes? Feel more comfortable in a weight room than in a yoga studio? Convinced that yoga is “too New Age-y” — or simply too hard? This workshop demystifies yoga for the regular guy, in a playful and energetic way which is both accessible and authentic – taught by a regular guy just like you. Together we’ll get strong, stretched, and confident to attend a regular yoga class without feeling lost or out of place. And no, we won’t make you wear spandex. Yes, yoga can be masculine – and fun!
Yoga for Skiers and Snowboarders
Never done yoga but love to ski or snowboard? No fear – this workshop is for anyone looking for a way to improve their skiing through yoga. The only requirements are curiosity and an open mind.
Interested in finding core strength, body awareness, and balance that will help take your skiing to another level? Tired of dealing with tight hips or sore lower back muscles after a weekend on the slopes? Want to learn how yoga can help prevent skiing-related injuries?
With this 2 hour workshop, you’ll learn how you can use yoga to improve your strength, flexibility, stamina, balance and breathing to improve your skiing and boarding. Whether you want to prevent injury or take your skiing or boarding to the next level, this workshop can help you on the way to achieve your goals!
The Warrior and The Yogi
Who are we? Our family tells us, society tells us, laws and customs tell us. But what do we say? How do we get to that place of self-knowledge and conviction where we are able to state without doubt, fear or anger, “This is who I am, this is what I believe, this is how I intend to live my life?”
How do we find our true calling, our soul companions, our destiny? In this task, a powerful ally is the Warrior Ethos. Directed inward, it grounds us, fortifies us and focuses our resolve. When we find ourselves taking a closer look at the path of yoga, we see not only parallels to the warrior ethos but also that they are a reflection of each other.
Lifelong yogi and warrior Chris Courtney leads you on a journey to understand how to blend the codes of the warrior and the yogi into a powerful and fulfilling life practice, all while building a more peaceful and just world. (Discussion and asana)
