About The Workshop
Did you know that the psoas muscle, along with other muscles involved in nervous system activation, can hold tension and trauma long after a stressor or trauma has ended? Neurogenic yoga is a revolutionary technique that awakens the body’s instinctive tremoring response to restore wholeness after stressful and traumatic events. Unfortunately this unconscious muscle contraction is conditioned out of us at an early age due to societal constructs that see shaking and tremoring as showing vulnerability or weakness.
This is a one day workshop of deep personal exploration. Learn how the nervous system and body tissue can hold anxiety, practice tension and trauma release techniques, and enjoy a day of deep relaxation.
This workshop provides:
Guided relaxation (yoga nidra)
Two neurogenic yoga practices
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
BOBBY BESSEY, B.Sc., RYT 500, RPYT, CD (DONA), HBCE (HypnoBirthing Educator)
Bobby Bessey, B.Sc., E-RYT 500, RPYT has been studying yoga and Ayurveda for over two decades. Her first hot yoga class in downtown Vancouver in the mid 90’s changed her life direction. She went on to study yoga in various traditions, in both Canada and Japan, before eventually making her way to India where she took her first of many teacher trainings. Her yoga background is varied however she practices predominantly in the School of Bihar tradition.
Studying in the birthplace of yoga introduced Bobby to a vast expanse of vedic wisdom. After years of exposure to ayurvedic teachings in yoga study contexts she finally decided to fully immerse herself. In 2017 she packed up her family and moved into a little apartment in the Himalayas to study with Dr. Arun Sharma at the Ayuskama Ayurveda Institute and Panchakarma Center in Dharamshala, India.
The ayurvedic information shared in this course is derived from Bobby’s interpretation of Dr. Sharma’s insightful teachings that follow in the Bhardwaj lineage. Dr. Sharma’s compassionate and perceptive instruction forever changed Bobby’s approach to instructing yoga classes. The principles of ayurveda not only underscored her belief in the power of yoga to enhance wellness, but added an expanded layer of discernment that she realized could be carried into a yoga class setting.
In this Ayurvedic Yoga teacher training program Bobby hopes to provide participants with both an appreciation and understanding of ayurvedic wisdom, and the skill to use this expanded viewpoint to deepen the wellness impact of every yoga class taught.
