100HR HATHA YOGA TEACHER TRAINING WITH KREG WEISS, FEBRUARY 24-MARCH 7, 2017

 

Yoga delivers a wealth of wellness benefits with increased flexibility being one of the more sought after effects. Much of the aesthetic-driven poses saturating social media posts demand significant degrees of range of motion. Alas, a common misconception has evolved that the more flexible one gets in yoga; the better and stretching is solution to alleviating aches and pains.

Thanks to integrated research and works from other fitness modalities, it is becoming increasingly important (for the sake of whole health and wellness), that a mobile body needs to also be stable. As well, proper tension balance across joint structures is fundamentally important in sustaining joint health and integrity.

An excessively mobile joint is an instable one. Stability evolves from the shape of bones, forms of cartilage within and around the joint, ligaments connecting bones as well as forming various types of ‘capsules’ around the joint, tendons (via muscles) crossing over the joints, and the interweaving layers and trains of fascia. Excessive flexibility can create laxity in the soft connective tissues leaving bone, cartilage, and other supportive soft tissues susceptible to injury.

Stretching isn’t always the answer. Most posture-related injuries and conditions are a result of chronic lifestyle and activity patterns that generate tension imbalances – muscles being short and tight on one side of a joint while opposing muscles are chronically elongated and inhibited. While stretching the overly tense regions may be beneficial, there is likely a more prudent need to engage opposing muscle groups to restore balance. Without this tension restoration (and changes to habitual patterns), the body will quickly settle back into dysfunction.

Let’s consider Downward Facing Dog and other classic forward bends that expand the hamstrings. It is becoming increasingly common to encounter people working through hamstring tendinosis – chronic tendon injury – at the sit bone attachment. One could mistakenly prescribe themselves more stretching in order to alleviate the symptoms and encourage recovery. However, a more effective and appropriate treatment (for most) is to significantly scale back the forward bending poses at the hip. Researchers are now concluding that the tendinosis often stems from compression-like injury to the tendons due to excessive stretching of the upper hamstrings. The shape of bone and the angle of drag of the tendon across the sit bones cause a compressive, cellular degeneration of the tendons leading to inflammation (to note: excessive sitting on the sit bones can add to this chronic injury). Resting from stretching the hamstrings and replacing those asanas with ones that add tension instead (i.e. hip extension exercises) is found to be a far more effective mode of recovery.

Just as the primary intention with yoga is to ‘unite’ and ‘create balance and harmony’, consider how the hatha elements (physical aspects) of your practice support that intention. Whole wellness is an interactive play of finding space and steadiness. Our joints bear significant loads throughout the day and while fluid range of motion is essential, that fluidity benefits from nurturing containment and a unified system of structural support. As we go deeper in the poses, allow a breath and moment to ask if this depth is truly serving the broader scope of benefits for us to be well and balanced.

Just as the primary intention with yoga is to ‘unite’ and ‘create balance and harmony’, we will consider how the hatha elements (physical aspects) of your practice support that intention throughout our Dubai 100hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training on February 24 – March 7, 2017. This 12 day training is open to anyone who has a passion in yoga & active teachers wishing to expand their clientele base and introduce the grounding style of Hatha Yoga into their classes

Testimonial Shared by Brittany Beltram | 100hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in Dubai with Kreg Weiss | Ph credit @yogalatesblissindubai

“I’ve often been told that yoga is for everyone. As an aspiring teacher who’s beginning her own journey, I wondered about the accuracy of that statement, and the depth of knowledge necessary to assimilate students into a practice that was safe and right for each of them. I found, and began following Kreg Weiss’ videos after I injured myself. I ached for practical advice about the biomechanics of my own body, relative to my yoga practice. Thanks to the positive buzz about workshops Noura has facilitated, once Kreg’s training was announced, I knew I had to be there. He did not disappoint.  He teaches with the same passion and vigor that initially captivated me in his videos. The information at first glance appears dense and complex, but he breaks down all facets of his seminar with meticulously crafted presentations that are chocked full of well-labeled diagrams, and his own personal notes to guide you through each discussion. 

He injects humor and humility into every aspect of his training program. It is like having coffee with a friend; the crazy good kind of friend, that overflows with so much love for what they do, that their passion pours through them whenever they talk about it…you can’t help but to follow their lead.

Kreg also made it a point to make himself available for discussions, individual guidance and post-seminar Q&A.  At some point in the training, we discussed meditation and finding that stillness in between everything that creates static in our lives. I find that idea applicable to what I’ve learned in his seminar. We covered many aspects ‘between’: the bones, spirituality and practicality, flows for mixed level abilities and posture levels conducive to different anatomical variations.

This course is beneficial for ALL yoga teachers. We preach within our community that yoga is in fact for everyone. In modern society, most have been conditioned differently, anatomically, by our ever-evolving social behavior, than those who initially practiced the ancient art. Kreg, taught me how I can better speak yoga to everyone, and for that I am thankful; my foundation in teaching feels solid and grounded”  Brittany Beltram, RYT-200, Graduate of 2013 with Kreg Weiss in Dubai, UAE

When to Rest from Positive Stress by Kreg Weiss | Dubai 100hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training, February 2017

Standard

Kreg Weiss Hatha Yoga Teacher Training

Our yoga practice is an excellent method of applying positive stress. Positive stress conditions the tissues of the body to remain adaptive and engaged. Strengthening, loading, stretching, and compressing tissues in mindful manners stimulate cells promoting a healthier, and functionally optimum physiological and psychological state. When there is lack of understanding of what is the appropriate amount of positive stress along with a lack of sufficient rest, our relationship to our practice withers, and this stress turns against us in the form of acute injuries and/or chronic conditions.

 

As we stress various tissues, those tissues undergo different forms of breaking down and/or cellular activation. Time is needed after these applications of stress for the cells to work their magic in ‘repairing’.  This time requirement can greatly vary given that our tissues receive nutrients in different manners. Bones and muscles are highly vascularized (rich, direct blood supply providing highly accessible nutrients) whereas tendons, ligaments, and cartilage receive nutrients via cellular diffusion (no direct blood supply). These avascular tissues will need greater time to undergo repair processes versus the vascularized ones.

 

While yoga is traditionally suggested as a daily practice, time repair and keeping positive stress in a healthy medium should be considered. It is common in weight training programs to rest conditioned muscle groups for a minimum of 48 hours, therefore you will see those with ample training experience rarely engaging the same muscle groups on a daily basis. Why is this approach often not applied in yoga?

I have found it beneficial (from the perspective of positive stress) to ‘cycle’ muscle groups as well as primary joints. Examples: Doing a hands-free practice in order to rest the hands/wrists after heavily loaded practices (ie containing numerous wrist-loading poses and/or arm balances). Avoiding poses that potentially torque the knees after sessions that have threaded in postures like pigeon, lotus, and cow face. Nurturing the thighs for a couple of days after injecting a practice with extra standing poses that clearly cooked the quadriceps.

The advantage with yoga and it’s enormous number of poses, breathing exercises, and meditation techniques, is we can creatively generate sequences that will allow us to have a daily practice while intelligently and strategically give rest and repair to targeted tissues. These tissues will then more holistically adapt, get stronger, become more receptive to mobilization and fluidity, and ideally be less susceptible to injuries. Whether your practice is more fiery or more chill-pill, mindful resting is essential.

As part of our functional yoga anatomy and sequencing explorations, the 100 Hr Integrative Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in February by Senior Hatha Yoga Teacher, Anatomy expert & Kinesiologist Kreg Weiss from Canada, will apply these resting principles: *addressing common joint injuries and overuse conditions related to yoga, *how to create yoga sequences that apply effective progressive overload and rest periods, *sequencing for athletes and combining yoga with other fitness modalities.

Should you squeeze or relax your glutes in cobra pose?

Standard

Cobra Pose in Yoga

Dubai 100hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in February 2017 by Kreg Weiss

Question by Yoga student:
Should you squeeze or relax your glutes in cobra? I had a couple of teachers say to squeeze in classes and that jams my low back. When they are relaxed I can go deeper into the pose. What is the correct cue, please?

Answered by Kreg Weiss:
Here’s what I’ve been able to ‘gather’ for the pros and cons to the glute squeeze

cue in cobra pose.

Pros (reason for doing the glute squeeze):
*Engagement of the gluteus maximus drives hip extension that generates a posterior pelvic tilt. This cue is usually aimed at helping people reduce negative compression of the lumbar spine as many people overextend (by default) into their lower back in cobra pose. The posterior tilt of the pelvis draws the lumbar spine out of its’ lordotic curve and requires the backbend to be distributed more up into the thoracic region.

Cons (a variety of perspectives):
*Engagement of the gluteus maximus (particularly the upper fibres) tends to also lead to external rotation of the hip/thigh since those fibres attach to the fascia lines of the TFL. This promotes improper engagement patterns of the gluteus maximus in other poses like bridge, warrior 3, and drop backs.
*The gluteus maximus partially interconnects with the sacrum – some believe glut engagement can place ‘jamming’ stresses into the SI joint.
*Some believe that excessive engagement of the gluts (and an overly exaggerated posterior tilt) can send too much of the back bend into the thoracic spine leading to compressive stress higher up the spine.

Overall, there is no right way to do cobra pose.

Some people have less space between their spinous processes of the vertebrae of the lumbar region. A pelvic tilt is beneficial to most people – how much all depends on the individual. For me, knowing that glut engagement poses potential issues, I prefer to generate the pelvic tilt with the abdominal muscles instead – this generates an eccentric activation of the abdominals (lengthening while contracting, thus a great functional way to train the core). So, I typically cue people to work from the belly to protect the back lines and yes, I, ask people to relax the gluts.

What is fundamental is that we teach our students to embrace their structural variability. Ask people to recognize all sensations and the relationship that they are having with those sensations. Encourage people to stay low in their cobra at first and appreciate if this degree of the pose is ideal – they will acquire great benefits just lifting the trunk a couple inches off the ground. If the students wish to rise higher, remind them to play with different degrees of pelvic tilts (via the abdominals) and to always come back to the reason of being in the pose – not for performance or aesthetics, but to acquire a balance of functional strength, stability, and space. There are no set alignment cues for any pose – as long as we know why and how to do these cues (what is the anatomy and biomechanics behind them) and how they may or may not apply to different body types, we are then more empowered to be unique and exploratory. When this approach sets in, our vocabulary and conversation as teachers become immensely different and more authentic.

TESTIMONIALS | GRADUATES OF KREG WEISS HATHA YOGA TEACHER TRAINING IN DUBAI

“I really enjoyed my training with Kreg and each of them brought some interesting perspectives to my current practice. As soon as I enter the room I felt relax, at ease and ready to explore Kreg’s practice.. It was such a great feeling. What I really liked about these sessions was the connection I had to my body during the practice, to the postures and the way we worked on the transition between postures. Each transition allowed me to go deeper into the stretch, pushing boundaries without hurting my body. It was almost like the body was expanding as we were going through the sequences. I also had on both evenings of the sessions a very good energy. Thank you for this experience and I hope we will have more to come!  ” K.M

“First of all I would like to thank you for these amazing breathtaking wow-days and all the knowledge you gave us. I found out about my body anatomy, how the bones, muscles and joints move under my skin and how they influence one another. Now I know how to bend forward safely for my spine and being “Bendy Wendy” is not always good. And not everyone can be as flexible as another. If one side of my body can do more than the other I should stop where the other side stops, without pushing my body. I can now explain how to safely move into Downward Dog, plank, dancing cat and how to specific muscles in these poses. I now know so much more! I love the mudras and pranayama and will integrate them in my daily practice.  Your approach to teaching is so unique and beautiful!” Daria Issina

“I love anatomy and I think it’s fascinating to truly understand how our body works. One of the best things about developing and having a yoga practice is how it connects us with our physical body. I remember when I started practicing yoga, even though I had been active my whole life, I start to discover my body in a whole new way. My muscles were opening up and it was a sort of re-discovering of each muscle, how they supported each other, which ones were working in each pose, etc. I simply loved the way Kreg made all the poses look so simple…thank you from the bottom of my heart” Nina Dubash

“Thank you again for such a fantastic course. You are a wonderful teacher and your knowledge and passion for your subject truly inspirational. In my next life, should I have one, I will be a yogi-physiotherapist and the anatomy-yoga encyclopedia that you are going to write will be my bible! If only I’d known 35 years ago that this is what I should have done” Anne van der Velden

“This was an unforgettable and new experience I have obtained from your training. From my perspective as a beginner, it was absolutely profound and very knowledgeable. You have a talent of teaching and delivering the information in a very comprehensive way that everyone would absorb and definitely apply in their practice” Julia

“Noura, as you told me before the workshop: you are going to love it, and this happened! Beside of being a wonderful “warm-hearted” person, Kreg really wanted us to share and absorb as much as possible of his knowledge and his teaching. The material, the readings he gave us every day just excellent. I’m going back with both a broader knowledge and wider view on yoga and not JUST yoga. So thank you so much Noura for making this happen. You know you have my highest esteem!” Alessandra

“Generous , responsible , attentive, competent & fun, what else could a student ask for ? Seriously! I guess we can get trained in many things in life, but I don’t think we can teach people to carry a golden heart, or you have it or you don’t. Kreg does ! Thanks Noura for organizing this workshop.” Adriana MeBarr

Rock Climber’s Essence of Receptivity and Yoga | Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in Dubai by Kreg Weiss, Feb 2017

Standard

yoga rock climbers.jpg

100hr Integrative Hatha Yoga Teacher Training with Kreg Weiss
February 24 – March 7, 2017
Dubai, UAE

“I was thinking yesterday of how experienced rock climbers (note: never actually done it myself) emulate how a yoga practice can be – highly saturated with a sense of mindful engagement and receptivity.  The skill and agility applied in rock climbing requires a delightful balance of knowing how to engage regions of the body that require stabilization and strength while, at the same time, being able to remain free, open, and receptive to move through large, complex movements.  Is this not what is required of us when moving on the mat?

My interpretation of receptivity on the mat is the evolving process of developing the awareness to engage the body while knowing how to soften at the same time.   Some of my common cues as a yoga teacher address the subtle gripping and bracing that occurs in stimulating poses.  Often I see people clenching their jaws, flaring the nostrils, or closing off the eyebrows – this is gripping.  Frequently, I observe toes grasping and clawing the earth in standing poses.  All unnecessary, unaware holding and ultimately poorly directed energy.

The opposite occurs frequently as well with a lack of necessary engagement  – I find this readily happens when students settle their attention on the immediate, ‘gross’ objectives of the postures.  While one region of the body experiences the primary engagement of the pose, other parts of the body become nonexistent.  Good example is seated half twist (bottom leg extended).  As the student twists and sends the gaze away from the body, the extended leg ankle becomes limp and unpurposeful – here is the opportunity to open the back lines of that extended leg by feeding through the heel (knee extension) and by working energy through the ankle and across the toes (ankle dorsiflexion and toe abduction).  Alas, often not the case and that leg remains a soft noodle.

Taking the idea of unnecessary gripping and bracing further, the ultimate aim of our practice is to create a stable, yet supple vessel for energy to move through and ignite the soul.  This flow of energy is greatly facilitated by our breath.  Wasteful gripping and hardening can restrict our breathing mechanics and capacity to draw in prana.  How often we do hear our yoga neighbors in class snorting and puffing away with their breath when trying reach past the toes in seated forward bends?  They would be better served to ease off, realign, reassess, and dissolve the drive towards the ‘challenge’ of the pose.  Nurturing intentions begin to flourish when the breath acts as the gauge that monitors quality over quantity.  Harmony over desire.

These elements of receptivity are essential for being exploratory and for having the ability to align into your unique physical and energetic practice.   Rigidity limits playfulness.  Lack of mindful engagement diminishes purpose and benefits.  Find that balance, like a rock climber, becoming one with the practice (with the mountain face) versus seeing it as a barrier and being rigid against it.  Become fully in tune in how to apply the fire element in certain parts while using the water element to remain receptive, supple, and flowing.” – Kreg Weiss, www.kregweiss.ca
