Yoga Intensive with Janet Stone
About This Event
Internationally renowned yoga teacher Janet Stone is coming back to Amsterdam! Based in San Francisco, Janet has been offering her intensive, alignment-based vinyasa classes combined with bhakti and the philosophy of yoga for the past decades. We are so happy to be able to offer you a weekend-long Yoga Intensive (full description below) and a Masterclass in Amsterdam with this senior teacher. Get ready to move, learn, expand, and feel deeply inspired by her clear and embodied teachings. You can join the Masterclass or Weekend Intensive separate, or make use of the package discount when you join both.
In this weekend workshop, we'll immerse in what it means to teach from a place of deep attention to your own practice. We'll explore the power of aligning from the inside out, sequencing from a place of intuition and inner knowing, and the powerful ripple effect of offering hands-on assists that come from a space of clear intention and communication.
Each session will begin with a comprehensive practice that includes meditation, pranayama, asana, and chanting. Afternoons will be an opportunity to dive into the heart of teaching as an emanation of one’s own practice. This means refining one’s intention, drawing upon practice and the teachings of yoga to connect with intuition, and trusting the body’s own innate intelligence.
* Sankalpa—the intention of the heart and mind — to develop an understanding of our own unique dharma (or path)
* The connection of the physical body and energetic body to understand alignment and assisting as ways to support integrity and stability
* Nourishing practices that blend asana and the courage to chant from the heart.
* Partner and small group work that supports each individual as they articulate their intention and the commitments they want to make to sustain a daily practice on and off the mat.
If you are a teacher, this workshop will support you in uncovering why you teach and what you uniquely have to offer. If you simply want to deepen your practice, this workshop will help you understand the practice more holistically.
The weekend’s focus will help recalibrate your inner compass and provide practices, tools, and resources you can explore long after our time together comes to a close.
