40 Day Challenge - Chakra WASH

27 February - 7 April

All Studios | Cost: No cost

Kicking things off in March with an opportunity for a complete reset-- body, mind, & spirit.

Over six weeks, shift your focus toward cleansing, detoxifying, and empowering the chakras.

Chakras manifest at the intersection of our emotional and physical bodies, thus directing the way we feel & how we interact with (or react to) people and situations encountered each day. Cleansing, detoxing, and empowering our individual chakras and the chakra system as a whole is the first step toward clearing away emotional baggage that can leave us feeling depleted. Recognizing a yoga practice as a modality for healing, addressing a particular chakra through asana and meditation can help you to feel lighter, nurtured, and at peace.

We'll begin our exploration of the chakra system by directing our attentions to a particular chakra, beginning with our foundational, root chakra in week one. Week by week, we'll make our way up the system.

This event is intended as FUN. There aren't any additional fees; all we want is for you to participate! As is true with all of our 40 Day Challenges, this is an excellent opportunity to create new habits and nurture yourself. All that is required on your end is a commitment to attend THIRTY classes over the course of the challenge.

At the end of our six weeks, six winners will be selected at random (two from each studio: Featherston, Wakefield, and Lower Hutt) from our pool of participants. Winners will receive a voucher to enjoy a session at Float Well (http://www.floatwell.co.nz/).

Keep an eye on our events page on Facebook for more information on the 40 Day Challenge as the event unfolds. Or, subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates on ongoing studio events.

Love & peace, y'all,

Hands-On Assists ~ Advanced Teacher Training with Amy Ippoliti

Book online

4 October - 7 October

Hot Yoga Wellington, Level 2, 139 Featherson Street, Wellington, New Zealand | Cost: Regular: $699; Late: $799

From October 4th - 7th, join Amy Ippoliti at Hot Yoga Wellington & Lower Hutt for an intimate, advanced teacher training that focuses on Hands-on Assists. This week is one of many modular trainings in the 90 Monkeys Advanced Teacher Training curriculum (http://www.90monkeys.com/teacher-training).

A skillful hands-on adjustment in a yoga class can be transformational for your students. Similarly, an inadequate adjustment can be more detrimental to the growth of your students than no adjustment at all. Learn how to give masterful hands-on assists that are both educational and empowering for your students and discover the art of service and attention through refining and practicing your therapeutic touch under Amy’s watchful eye.

This intensive teacher training is designed to provide you with advanced skills in a wide variety of manual assists in order to add depth and sophistication to your teachings. Hands-on adjustments in the context of group settings, private sessions, or in large public settings will be discussed.

Radically expand your teaching repertoire and explore adjustments for a wide range of postures!

You will learn:

-Different types of touch and when to use them

-The difference between therapeutic, opening, stabilizing, and positioning assists

-Methods for centering yourself before teaching to help enhance the energy behind your touch

-How to unlock the mysteries of your own body and that of your students through a review of clear alignment understanding

-Hold your own body safely during hands on adjustments to prevent injury

-How to connect with a student before giving an adjustment to build trust

-How to give verbal adjustments before touching a student to help empower their understanding

-Methods for touching a student so that they move with you and improve their posture

-Observation techniques to help you know when and who to adjust first in a class

-How to adjust with the breath as your ally

-When to use props as part of an adjustment

-How to communicate clearly in your adjustments

-Alignment concepts that will help you know “how to adjust” not just “which standard adjustment to give”

As with all modules in the 90 Monkeys Advanced TT Curriculum, this topic will be explored through both a career and a business lens.

In addition, you will:

Meet and make fabulous friends!

Enjoy the New Zealand landscape, fantastic restaurants, and great people in Wellington!


Prepare in advance! Registered students will receive a Pre-Event Video that Amy has put together to help you get the most out of this training.
