YTU Core Integration Immersion Retreat (@Center for Advancement of Therapeutic Arts, NYC)

Tuesday, February 7, 2017 - 10:00am to Friday, February 10, 2017 - 4:00pm
Join me in NYC for 4 days of Core Integration Immersion and exploration. In addition to daily workshop-style classes, we'll also be gathering for group lunches, dinner(s), exploring and enjoying some NYC parks together and taking in a Wednesday evening Broadway show (tbd). NOTE: These additional activities are 100% optional. They are not included in the cost of the Immersion. Each activity will be paid for by participants at the time of the event. Register here: For yoga teachers, advanced yoga practitioners, Pilates and fitness teachers, massage therapists, dancers, and martial artists. This 4-day immersion is designed to enhance your connection to the abdominal core and is filled with practical tools for effectively integrating core work into your practice and teaching. Through embodied anatomy exercises, you will systematically travel within your core to explore the key structures that mobilize and stabilize the spine. Using Jill's original Yoga Tune Up® techniques, you will strengthen and stretch every last muscle fiber. You will be introduced to several core-related pranayama techniques to directly experience your diaphragm and experience daily self-massage with Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls. Learn how to apply core work to your daily yoga practice, as well as ways of integrating and sequencing the exercises in a class setting. Unique empowerment exercises will address the emotional blocks that often obscure core work, so that you may uncover and resolve your third chakra issues, and ultimately inspire others. A Physioball is required for this course and will not be provided by the studio. Trainees are responsible for bringing this each day.
