Yoga Tips with Christina Sell - Handstand

I made this video clip for a recent online course that I offered on sequencing. (For more information on that course you can check it out- Part 1 and Part 2 Sequencing Strategies are still available online for purchase. Lots of juicy practical tidbits throughout the courses. I can't recommend them enough. Do Part 1 first, it has a ton of necessary background to benefit from Part 2)

Anyhow, I used these clips in my courses and realized that I could make them available as an offering to anyone who is interested. This week's Yoga Tip is about handstand. Good stuff for both teachers and practitioners who want some help getting up to the wall and learning to balance away from the wall as well. Enjoy!

Speaking of online courses I have put three new courses on the books, each very different from the other.

  • Starting November 6th is the The Gift of Practice, a six-week course designed to support you in staying connected to your practice and to each other as a community during the holiday season when so often we feel "too busy to practice" which is always a sign we need to do just that! 

  • Starting January 22 I am offering a  12-session online Teacher Development Course that will take place over six months to give plenty of time for integration and incorporating the teachings into your own practice and classes.

  • Starting February 11 I am offering an 8-session course on Making Peace with Your Body Through Yoga based on my first book. Similar and different to the first course I did on the topic this one will work through a chapter each month from my book Yoga From the Inside Out: Making Peace with Your Body Through Yoga and will incorporate the material from my book in a very direct way.

If you are on my mailing list you will get a notice about these in your inbox. If not, stay tuned for more details or email me directly. (Or hey, sign up for my mailing list! )

All sessions are recorded so live participation is not required.

Each program will have on online support group for continued conversation and community discussion throughout the course.

Another  thing you will notice is that each of  these programs is offered at a sliding scale. I am experimenting with this approach to encourage as many people as possible to participate. I do my best to pack as much usable content into these programs to make them a good value and yet I know that money is tight for people. Also, if you want to do two programs, these sliding scales are a way for you to do both at a more affordable price since the Teacher Training program is more "hard skills" and the other two courses are more "soft skills" and inner work.  Anyway, I have been very pleased with the response I have gotten so far with the tiered pricing approach.

All right then, more soon.

I cannot wait for your teacher development course. As a new teacher, I have learned so much from you. I'm so grateful that you share this stuff with us online (and at an affordable price). Thank you Christina :)
