Yoga Journal Conference in Estes Park

September 27, 2015 - October 4, 2015

I’ll be teaching multiple classes this year at Yoga Journal Conference in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado.  Check out these workshops and other internationally known yoga teachers at this gathering.

 

Building the Basics
Friday, October 2 — 11:00am – 1:00pm

Learn how to create vinyasa flows that actually teach yoga to newbies. Use the Tentpole Principle to effectively organize and unfold each asana and learn to translate yoga philosophy into actions and intentions from day one. Instead of “dumbing down,” let’s inspire our students to feel smart and empowered.

Discussion and asana.

 

Skillful Means of Touch
Saturday, October 3 — 11:00am – 1:00pm


Hands-on adjustments are not one-size-fits-all. Learn and practice basic versus advanced adjustments by understanding direction, quality, and precision of instructive touch for every category of asana. Explore the who, what, why, when, and how of skillful touch and how you can be the light on the path for students as they live into their own practice.

**This class has been approved by American Council on Exercise (ACE) for 0.2 CECs.**

Asana with partner work.

Embodied Equanimity: To Stand in the Middle of All This
Friday, October 2 — 3:30pm – 5:30pm


Yoga is not a magic pill to calm your irritation or stimulate your boredom. It is about standing in the middle of life with a sense of inner strength, resilience, and spaciousness. Learn the classic teaching of upekka, or equanimity, an eight-fold practice that literally shifts the ground of one’s existence, away from habitual drama and toward what Buddhist texts call “the radiant calm of the mind.” Asana is the perfect vehicle for this practice, because you can’t get radiant or calm or present or strong without your body. Be ready to go slow, or a little faster, to pay attention, and not buy into everything you think–because it’s all impermanent anyway.

**This class has been approved by American Council on Exercise (ACE) for 0.2 CECs.**

Mostly asana.

 

Meditation 101
Saturday, October 3 — 3:30pm – 5:30pm

Discover traditional mindfulness meditation as a path toward making friends with yourself, creating a gap between stimuli and response, and experiencing more joy and contentment in your everyday life. You will learn what the fundamentals and benefits of meditation practice are, how to develop a personal regular practice, and which tips to use for working with obstacles.

What to bring: A blanket.
Discussion and meditation, no asana.

From The Yogis

  • Terri Bender Morrison, Owner, Mindful Motion Yoga, OM 500 TT 2015

    "Cyndi, I feel that my teaching has shifted a bit - sequencing is more interesting and effective. As I was driving home tonight, I thought about the statements of "leaving crumbs" and "connecting the dots". While you meant that for us as direction to be better teachers, I recognize you were doing that for us as well. I believe I am just now processing some of the things you taught this summer. The subtle parts of classes escaped me, but I am getting them now. Thank you for the crumbs, for leaving plenty of space between the dots....I think I see the moon."

  • Zan Margolis, OM 200 TT , 2012

    "The more yoga I experience, the more I realize how special it is that in your teacher trainings you actually teach your yogis how to *teach*"

  • Susan Golden, Studio Owner, Maine

    "Cyndi’s sense of humor and genius teachings have made this OM 500 TT very, very stimulating every minute of the day. I’ve learned so much. I can’t wait to let it all come together and bring this to my teachings and to my life."

  • Natalie Levin, OM Yoga Graduate, OM Warrior Weekend Teacher Training Program 2003

    "I am a graduate of the OM 2003 Warrior Weekend Teacher Training Program.  I had the honor to teach at OM yoga in New York City for several years.  I have since moved to another city and was instantly offered teaching jobs based solely on the fact that I had been a teacher at Cyndi Lee’s OM yoga.  Studio owners in my current city thought so highly of Cyndi Lee’s OM yoga Teacher Training that they hired me immediately and I found and continue to find that my OM yoga Teacher Training opens door after door for me.  OM yoga (practicing there, teaching OM yoga, and learning from Cyndi Lee) helped me professionally in my own yoga-teaching career.  Even more meaningfully for me, I feel that the path of mindfulness and attention to alignment that pours through the pores of OM yoga has influenced me and helped me to soften enough to become more “myself” since I first walked into the OM yoga studio."

  • Jeri Wilson, Studio Owner, Maine

    “I’m Jeri and I’m a studio owner in Maine and I just finished my 500 hr TT with Cyndi Lee. It was an excellent experience, partly because I had been trained primarily in Anusara and I was challenged to think very differently. I found it was very helpful to come back to teach with Cyndi’s influence. She is very, very funny and she will work you and challenge you and you will feel like you have actually gained something really deep from the training.”

  • Jeanie Gasque, Yoga Teacher, South Carolina, OM 500 TT 2015

    "Cyndi's skillful guidance lead me to a greater clarity of alignment based vinyasa.  The yoga combined with the charm of Lynchburg made the Sun Session an unforgettable experience."

  • Gina Callendar, Yoga Teacher, Yonkers, NY, OM 500 TT 2015

    "Cyndi truly follows the middle path and instills that in her teachings.  She combines disciple and humor to create an engaging, thought provoking and enlightening experience.  I had the pleasure of taking her 500 hour OM Yoga Teacher Training.  I have deepened my practice, work to continue challenge myself and never want to stop learning.  I am pretty comfortable teaching, but withCyndi’s guidance I am more confident in my hands-on adjustments and clarity of instruction with my students.  Thank you Cyndi for reinforcing my foundation, challenging me as a student and becoming my teacher.  I hope to continue to learn from you for many years to come.  Namaste."

  • Erica Settino, Founder, , Karuna for Animals

    "I have been teaching yoga for 12 years and over those 12 years I have often felt burned out and at a loss for inspiration. Now that I have taken Cyndi Lee’s OM 500 Teacher Training, I feel completely different, completely inspired, and so, so blessed. If you are even considering it, you must do it."

  • Donna Levenstien, Yoga Teacher, Lake George, NY

    "I am a student of the OM 200 and OM 500 TT. I keep learning from Cyndi Lee who is just a master teacher, every class I take, every hour I’m here she says something wonderful that I can bring into my life, onto my mat, into my classes with my students. As a teacher and a student, I feel enriched every time I’m with her and in her class."

  • Ann Megyas, Actor, Yoga Teacher, , Hospice Worker

    "I’m so glad I decided to take Cyndi Lee’s 500 hr TT. It advanced my personal practice in ways that I could not imagine. There is no pose I am afraid of anymore. It’s advanced my teaching practice, it’s advanced my dharma study. It’s just been a thrilling experience the whole time."
