YSN - The Yoga Society of Nashville 

Connecting Bodies, Minds and Spirits Through Yoga in Tennessee

In 1977, a group of people who practiced yoga decided to build an organization dedicated to helping others learn about the benefits of yoga and make it possible for people to find teachers and classes. They started YSN, a not-for-profit organization with volunteer officers dedicated to helping the yoga community thrive and grow. 

 

The Yoga Society of Nashville unites students and teachers of all traditions through study, practice, and service.

 Teaching Yoga for Scoliosis
with 
Deborah Wolk


Friday, Sept. 22, 2017    6-9pm 


Students with scoliosis have very specific needs with the nervous system, proprioceptive system and with pain patterns.  One must avoid muddled information and give simple, direction oriented instructions using external stimuli.  Using prop set-ups, hands-on adjustments and verbal instructions, Deborah Wolk will guide you in how to better teach your students with scoliosis.

This class is appropriate for all yoga teachers and for students with scoliosis. Teachers of other modalities (Pilates, personal training, etc.) may attend as teachers with Deborah’s permission. This class is not recommended for brand new beginners to yoga.

Teachers: $50 early bird (before Sept.1)   $60 regular

Spinal Asymmetry and the Organs
with Deborah Wolk

Sept 23-24, 2017
Sat 1­‐5pm   and   Sun 12‐4pm
at One2Yoga 223 Donelson Pike, Nashville, TN 37214

Scoliosis, and other Back Issues are musculoskeletal conditions but these conditions impact and are impacted by our organs. Deborah will offer techniques in the asanas to address these imbalances. She will also propose techniques to use the organs themselves to offer the spine more support. Understanding the specifics of your structure caused by back issue related asymmetries, one can learn to sense organic imbalances which have formed deeper within and how they impact one's health.

The workshop is for all levels. Six (6) months yoga experience is strongly suggested. It is recommended that you attend Saturday's workshop to understand the work on Sunday.

Saturday session: We will begin by locating the organs anatomically, and experientially. Starting with the digestive system and diaphragm as organizing principles, we will, through imagery, description, touch and movement be prepared to sense and locate the organs in our own body and “see” them in others.

Sunday session: Deborah will teach techniques in the asanas to address these asymmetries as well as some specific health issues. She will also propose techniques to use the organs themselves to offer the spine more support.

Early bird fee $155 if paid by Sept 1; after fee is $170.    Individual day: $90
