Join Dr. Abby Hoffmann and lecturer/yoga teacher Caroline Lofthouse for an intensive exploration of what yoga can offer dancers and performers.
This training will be a chance for those interested in working with specialist populations and yoga. Embodied Dancer is an innovative project blending the ancient teachings of yoga with cutting edge developments in dance training and performance enhancement.
This intensive training course will be a unique opportunity for experiential discovery, discussion, scholarship, and personal development.
What the training will offer An 30 hour curriculum that investigates the benefits of yoga for dancers in several key areas namely: creating safe, effective practice using anatomical and bio mechanical knowledge in order to apply specific techniques to a classroom or rehearsal/performance situation. This will not qualify you as a yoga teacher, but if you are already teaching yoga will add to your professional development and skillset.
How will it be taught? Practical, hands-on explorations will sit alongside more formal lecture and seminar discussions.
Who is it for? Maybe you are already a yoga teacher, or someone with a background in dance and movement. You want to understand the application of yoga principles to dance conditioning and training, and to learn how to apply these principles and practices to your current teaching. If you are not a teacher, this course will deepen your understanding of anatomical and movement principles in both the yoga and dance traditions - and how they inform each other.
Graduates of these trainings are; choreographers, dancers and lecturers working in HEI's
