Yoga therapist and trainer, Judy is founder of Yoga United Education and runs popular yoga therapy courses, BWY modules, a 550 hour Yoga Therapy diploma, and is faculty at Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. During a disturbing period in her life, Judy received insights by tuning into her inner wisdom; simple concepts like ‘’what would happen if I focused on all that was right with me instead of what is wrong with me”. Her yoga mat became her playground instead of her correction centre and through studying, exploring and recording practices, she guides others to a healthier, and more joyful life.

This workshop will explore definitions, the differences and similarities between yin, restorative and yoga nidra. Discussion and of course, direct experience through lingering practices, which are delivered with trauma sensitivity. As well as practice, there will be suggestions for delivering these practices in classes, workshops and 1-2-1 sessions. Please bring as many props as you can carry to prop your body so you are able to sustain being in a supported shape for some time, to drop into the brain states that each moment offers and gather information from the cells of your body. As we turn inward, there are so many gifts to receive.Read More
Moving from what needs fixing to what can be celebrated can be a game changer on and off the mat. Learn ways to shift from what’s wrong with us, what needs fixing and correction to giving ourselves permission to use the yoga mat as somewhere we can play, be free and creative, a playground instead of a correction centre. Yoga can often be intimidating – if we leave feeling not good enough, flexible enough, strong enough, perfect enough, where is the spirit of yoga? How are we doing as teachers? After all, we know our bodies better than anyone – let’s learn to celebrate our individual body’s uniqueness and aliveness to find greater acceptance, well being and freedom.
Includes some discussion on languaging for teachers.
