Permission to Play – Riding the Edge in Your Practice & Teaching
Integrating our personal practice into our teaching practice is a never ending experiment that – when it goes well – provides a safe container to explore our personal edges and find our unique voice. Permission to play is permission to not know, to be awkward, to succeed and to fail and thus to learn.
When we allow play or “unknowing” to be a part of our practice, we can drop our ego needs of clinging to being right, or smart or perfect and open the doorway to a more intimate connection with ourselves and others. When we change our perspective on our practice and teaching from wanting to perfect the pose to one of an ongoing learning process then we can find more humor and joy in our practice.
In this workshop we will explore some of the many ways to play with the interweaving of personal practice and teaching.
Our morning session will include and active energetic practice. The afternoon will be restorative in nature.
This workshop is geared toward yoga teachers and serious practitioners.
