Teaching Contemporary Yoga Advanced Training

Day #1: The Aesthetics of Beauty and Connoisseurs of Consciousness
Day#2: Making Ritual and Meaning Making
Day#3: Why Thinking Matters: Radical versus Critical Acceptance
Day#4: The Power of Imagination
Day#5: Merging Theory and Practice

This 5-day course will evaluate the practice and teaching (pedagogy) of Yoga for advanced practitioners and teachers. It is a deep dive into Yoga intended for who those who are looking to continue a serious inquiry, conversation, and collaboration about teaching and practicing yoga and a consideration of how to make its future evolution most effective.

Edward and Laurie will utilize their new book Teaching Contemporary Yoga (Routledge 2022) to frame and lead discussion and experimentation. They will
cultivate independent critical thinking and imaginative solutions to the problems facing Yoga and its practice in the world today.

Relevant to any style, orthodoxy, or population, this “incubator” goes beyond instruction in postures or adjustments. It will discuss how good teaching encompasses having sound theories, methods, techniques, and practice. It will promote the ways in which student progress and well as the robust evolution of Yoga as a discipline requires a systematic route to the experience of “enlightenment.” This
is a “training for the trainer” and is optimal for those that wish to create exceptional and innovative teacher trainings.

Teaching Contemporary Yoga Advanced Training Accommodations

We are at it again! We have been waiting for our next Utopia Guesthouse to find us and finally, here it is for us in El Cuyo! The makeover is in the works and we are currently painting, stripping varnish, redecorating, adding a few more rooms, expanding the yoga space and updating bathrooms in order to offer you a wonderful, family style stay in our own little paradise. Please use your open mind and see beyond these photos to the adorable vision that we are aiming to create… 

These are our BEFORE photos.

Bedrooms will be simple and cozy with neutral tones, natural textures from local sources and some with ocean views. Bathrooms will be shared amongst a few rooms. Overall the house will have 8 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

Our yoga studio will be right in front of the sea offering gentle ocean breezes and sweeping views of this emerald water that is beyond breathtaking.

 

Please stay tuned for our updates on the progress of the beach house and follow us on Instagram @utopiayogaelcuyo for stories on how it’s going as we renovate another Utopia creation! Here is the vibe we are going for to give you an idea…
