Love yoga and want to deepen your practice? Are you curious about the foundations of yoga and how to integrate them into your life? Are you interested in sharing your love of the practice with others?
Local expert Karen Anderson will offer an eight-week training course this fall at Synergy Center for Wellness in Avon. Anderson has been an avid student of yoga for 20 years and has taught in the valley and around the world for 16 years. The training will be an exploration of the physical body, the energetic body and the mind, bringing the traditional practice into the modern context.
Anderson combines alignment-based ashtanga yoga with classical vinyasa and integrates Buddhist philosophy into the history of yogic thought. The eight-week training will include daily practice, as well as instruction on anatomy, philosophy and teaching methodology. Anderson specializes in teaching posture assessment and how to give hands-on assists. With a class size of 10, there will be personal attention to the needs of each teacher-in-training.
Anderson has 1,000 hours of training with her primary teacher, Richard Freeman, and 300-hour advanced certification with Andrei Ram in the lineage of Dharma Mittra. She completed 800 hours of study in the history and philosophy of yoga with Georg Feuerstein, and she is certified to teach Buddhist meditation by Noah Levine in the lineage of Jack Kornfield.
The training will be held Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 3 through Nov. 22. The cost of $3,000 includes all books. This training is registered with Yoga Alliance. The class is limited to 10; a deposit of $500 will reserve your space.
