Learn to Connect the Power of Inspiration to Perspiration
With Michelle Marchildon:
A workshop on creating themes in a yoga class.
A love of yoga is the first step to becoming a teacher, but how do we put our inspiration into words? How do we encourage others to find the same profundity in asana that we’ve come to enjoy? The Theme Weaver workshop is based on the bestselling book that is used by more than 10,000 yogis worldwide. The author will show you how to use an eight step formula that will help you gather your thoughts, go deeper into your own self-knowledge, and create any type of yoga or exercise class where inspiration is the key to motivation. You will walk away with a greater sense of purpose and themes you can use immediately.
Michelle Marchildon is a yogi, journalist, the author of two books and a columnist. You can read her work in Sports Illustrated, Origin Magazine and the Elephant journal. She travels the world sharing her joy of the spoken word combined with the practice of asana.
Work privately with one of Greenwood’s Yoga Instructors to start a new yoga practice or deepen your current practice. Instructors will design a class to meet your needs.
