Workshops & Teacher Trainings

Join me for 200 Hour,  300 Hour and Continuing Education trainings in Adaptive, Gentle and Restorative Yoga.

200 Hour Level

Winter - Spring Mid-Week 200 Hour Teacher Training

Bhakti Barn Yoga

Intro to Adaptive Yoga

As one size does not fit all for most things, the same is true in yoga. Adaptive yoga tailors poses to safely meet students where they are. Learn how to use props, pose variations and orientations, as well as positive language and encouragement to empower students regardless of age, ability, body type, or experience.

 

Intro to Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga helps to relax our bodies by releasing unnecessary habitual tension, deepening our breath and quieting our minds. This training will cover the stress vs. relaxation response as well as tips on teaching restorative yoga poses including props and pose set up, relaxation techniques, incorporating restorative poses into non-restorative classes, and extensive review of 6 common restorative poses.

300 Hr. Level and Continuing Education

Schedule: 5/15 Gentle Yoga, 5/16 Accessible Yoga,, 5/23 Restorative Yoga

Bhakti Barn Yoga

Training open to 200 hr certified teachers. Qualifies for Yoga Alliance Continuing Education credits.

 

Accessible Yoga

This advanced level training will give teachers the ability to teach yoga to a wider range of students with differing levels of ability, creating classes that are inclusive and empowering. Extensive use of props,  language, sequencing and pose variations including both supine and chair yoga practices will be explored.

 

Gentle Yoga

Many people are first introduced to yoga in a gentle class. And more experienced students may return to a gentle class if they are recovering from injury or shifts and changes in their lives. As teachers, how do we give our students the tools to honor their bodies in their practices? Learn by exploring teaching tips such as pose grouping, cuing and alignment, dynamic vs. static poses, pose variations, breathing techniques, sequencing and more…

 

Restorative

Delve deeper into the practice of restorative yoga as we cover the impact of stress on our nervous systems, guidelines for teaching a dedicated restorative class, breathing techniques, teaching with minimal props, and pose set up and review of 12 additional restorative poses.

 

Adaptive and Restorative Yoga - A Virtual Continuing Education Series

(can be taken independently or together)

Yoga should be accessible to all people, regardless of age, body type or physical ability. With more and more doctors prescribing yoga to their patients dealing with injuries, stress, chronic illnesses, mental illness and other limitations, the world needs more teachers who can make yoga accessible to underserved populations. Join Stefanie Haberman for this two-part training (can be taken independently or together) to gain practical teaching skills, accrue continuing education credits and leave with a passion to make yoga accessible to everyone.

Teaching Adaptive Yoga

Just like one size does not fit all with a pair of jeans, the same is true with yoga. Adaptive yoga tailors the pose to the person, not the person to the pose. This practice uses props, pose variations and orientations, as well as positive language and encouragement to empower students regardless of age, ability, body type or experience.

Why learn how to adapt poses?

As a teacher, you will most likely encounter a mix of levels of ability, body types, ages, and experience coming to your classes -- even if you are teaching a specific level class. You want your classes to be inclusive, body positive, trauma sensitive, comfortable and welcoming to all. You want people to feel safe and empowered, enjoy the benefits of yoga and return to your classes.

 

In this training you will learn how to:

  • Adapt poses and structure classes so they are safe and accessible to students of varying body types, ages, abilities and levels of experience, including seniors, beginners and those healing from injuries

  • Use cues and language that are positive and encouraging to build confidence in your students

  • Use props for accessibility, grounding, stability, safety and comfort

  • Guide students in discovering the practice that works best for their bodies

Teaching Restorative Yoga

For most of us our stress levels have been at an all-time high for almost a year. Eventually this amount of stress can take a toll on our bodies, minds, and overall well-being. Restorative yoga offers an opportunity to pause, ground, and renew. This practice uses props to support our bodies in adaptive poses that release tension, deepen our breath and quiet our minds; all of which can give our nervous systems a much needed rest.

In this training we will cover:

  • An overview of restorative yoga

  • The stress vs. relaxation response

  • Use of props in restorative poses

  • Tips on teaching restorative yoga poses in both stand-alone restorative classes and in flow classes

  • Relaxation and breathing techniques

  • Extensive review and practice of common restorative poses - including prop set up and cues

 

You don't have to be an instructor to participate in one or both trainings.


Cost:

$90 for one course

$170 for the Adaptive and Restorative Training
