Shake away stress
With Alain Starosta

Saturday, January 25 2020 @ Mile End

TRE (tension release exercises) is a series of seven exercises that turn on our bodies’ natural ability to release deep seated stress, tension and old patterns. Though our stories are important, with TRE you don’t have to talk about your story, the mind takes a rest as your body does the work for you.
This technique is easy to learn and has shown very positive results in helping to balance the nervous system and calm the mind.

Saturday January 25 from 2pm to 3:30pm  @ Mile End

Bilingual workshop, only 15 spots!

MODULE 1 : Spine and breathing (25h)
March 12, 13, 14 and 15, 2020

The first module, prerequisite for modules 2 and 3 focuses on our axis, our center. Here we lay the foundations of Therasanas’ teachings, a solid foundation on which we will build a better understanding of human movement. We will deepen knowledge about the spine as well as its connection to breathing and its importance in movement and posture. We will also develop several teaching tools to better mobilize and stabilize the trunk.

We will explore: introduction to biomechanics, physiological concepts, movement pillars, orthopedic exercises, breathing anatomy, functional pranayamas, breathing & musculoskeletal system.

 

MODULE 2 : Lower end of the body (25h)
April 23, 24, 25 and 26, 2020


Module 2 focuses on the lower end: our legs, our roots, our anchorage. We will develop our connection with the soil and how to work better with it. We will explore ways to teach a solid pillar that progresses with practice.

We will be exploring biomechanical concepts, lower pillar, orthopedic exercises, body types, local neurology, gravity relation, 1 leg stabilization.

 

MODULE 3 : Upper end of the body (25h)
May 7, 8, 9 and 10, 2020


Module 3 focuses on the upper end: our arms, our wings, our other roots. We will deepen our connection with the ground using this other pillar, but also we will explore our members in space and the connection of these with our trunk. We will keep a teaching vision of good motor patterns that will grow with the practice of each.

We will explore: Introduction to the scapular girdle, lower pillar, orthopedic exercises, body types, local neurology, inversions.

 

Your teachers : Patricia and Jean-Paul

It was in 2001 as part of a professional training in classical ballet at the Montreal Conservatory of Dance, that Patricia Letendre discovered yoga. In 2009, she began teaching Hatha Yoga at the Satyam School of Hatha Yoga with Swami Premananda Saraswati (Hervé Blondon). She has been teaching yoga since 2010, has over 1000 hours of training and over 15 years of personal practice. She has also been trained in Swedish massage (435 h) since 2005 and in Thai yoga massage (level 1 to 4/355 h) since 2014. She has attended a large number of continuing education: yoga and helping relationship, awakening chakras and scoliosis yoga with Hervé Blondon; anatomy and posture, pranayama and yoga and depression with François Raoult.

Thanks to her passion for the human body and her therapeutic knowledge of the body, Patricia transmits in her classes the awareness, the control of movement and breathing that allow to better understand the concrete effects of yoga on global health. She has taught different styles of yoga, Hatha Yoga, Hatha Yoga Flow, Yin Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga and Restorative. For almost 5 years, she has focused her teaching in the Vinyasa area as well as teaching. Patricia is invited to various studios in the city of Montreal to give anatomy training to future yoga teachers. Since 2018 she has also been part of the trainer cohort at Wanderlust Yoga Studio to teach in their 200-hour faculty training.

Jean-Paul Raphaël graduated from the Athletic Therapy BAC at Concordia in 2009. Since then, he has continued to train following musculoskeletal training in osteopathy such as muscular energy techniques and myofascial release. He also maintained high performance expertise through training in injury prevention and high performance rehabilitation. It uses an approach that promotes the prevention and rehabilitation of injuries. He uses his 10-year high performance experience to help anyone who wants to heal quickly and safely.

During his career, he has treated as many people wishing to find more function in their daily lives than professionals and international sports. In particular, he worked with Cirque du Soleil artists for 3 years and several Olympians training in Quebec for 5 years. Through these jobs and by himself, Jean-Paul satisfies his deep curiosity to explore the world.
