Geometry of Yoga
with David Regelin
30hrs intensive for experienced practitioners and yoga teachers
Nothing can replace the compassionate heart and touch of a yoga teacher with a dynamic, adaptive, and artful method of teaching. After completing this intensive, expect to see your students with new eyes, perceive them with clarity and wisdom, and adjust them with confident hands.
What to expect during the intensive:
All four days will start with one hour of led practice, followed by one hour of assisted self-practice, and then a group discussion. The afternoon sessions will focus on postural adjustments. Expect to learn how to articulate postural adjustments as well as how to physically alter postures. David will choose a set of postures each day, and demonstrate adjustments on a few different body types. You will also break up into pairs to adjust one another, switching partners a few times so that you have a chance to work with different body types.
- Develop your intuitive awareness of your own postural pattern and ways of thinking. This above all will transform your practice and your teaching into something authentic and potent.
- Sharpen your eye for detail and symmetry. Elevate your understanding of alignment as something much more natural than straightening limbs and spreading fingers and toes. Learn the relationships between the parts that make up an integrated whole human being.
- Engage your students by describing the relationship between physical posture, mental disposition and spiritual development by increasing your own ¨wholeistic¨ understanding of yoga practice.
- Increase your ability to describe form and technique simply yet accurately to individuals and groups of students.

David Regelin is a traveling yoga teacher, based in New York City. David is a powerful voice, an eloquent and skillful teacher who is sought after for his workshops and teacher’s intensives. His unique talent for simple yet precise articulation of form and technique, echo in the bodies and minds of his students.
His reflective nature and incessant personal investigation into the potential transformative powers that a yoga practice can give, eventually led him to a more comprehensive approach to how physical form relates to psychological and emotional states. Inclined toward the mystical and timeless, greatly influenced by intensive study with Nevine Michaan, David’s practice and teaching has evolved into a more refined adaptation of how an asana (postural) practice can instigate profound and often therapeutic change.
