Asana Sequencing Workshop
September 8-15th, 2013- Redlands, CA
This is a weeklong workshop on asana for Classical Yoga vs. Yoga Therapy in the Tradition of T. Krishnamcharya. Come learn the classical vinyasa kramas, the modern vinyasa kramas and the vinyasa kramas for therapeutic purposes. Then learn how to sequence classes that will get you to the functional goal you have chosen for your client based on their individual needs. This workshop will also include several hours of subtle anatomy and how different postures potentially impact the prana in the body. I have not presented this material before and it is going to be exciting to share with you! Hope to see you there!
7 a.m.- 3 p.m. for 8 days
$1000 includes workshop and curriculum

Yoga Therapy Practicum Hours for IAYT Grandfathering Clause
The International Association of Yoga Therapist (IAYT) is currently setting the standards for grandfathering into the organization. Please see their website for more details. In a nutshell, the IAYT states the following:
Graduates of 300 hour yoga therapy programs such as Yoga Rx will be required to demonstrate an additional 150 hours of training for grandfathering. Specifically:
a) A minimum of 150 hours of mentored yoga therapy practicum, over and above the 300 hours of training.
b) 150 hour of practical experience as a yoga therapist after the completion of the 300 hours of training.
c) Some combination of a and b listed above, totaling 150 hours.
I am offering several options to fulfill these requirements for anyone who is interested. All of these options are taught in the Tradition of T. Krishnamcharya. They are a wonderful opportunity to go deeply into this tradition of yoga therapy.
1) Friday morning case studies on conference call. I send you the case the week before. We discuss it for 1 hour and give solutions to the health issues of the client we are studying. These have been on-going for 2 years now and very successful. Please see www.onesourceyoga.com for details.
2) I will be developing a video/ audio archive of case studies shortly. This will allow you to go into my website and find a topic that you have interest in. Download the video or audio and watch the practicum case study from the comfort of your home. The website www.amywheeler.com will be available shortly and new audios and videos will be constantly added to assist you in your practicum hours.
3) Practicum experience In PERSON! I will be renting a lovely outdoor yurt in Camarillo, CA beginning in September, 2013- June, 2014. We will study hard and play hard! There are many hiking trails and swimming pools, and the food will be catered at lunchtime. There are very inexpensive overnight accommodations if you don’t mind sleeping in the yurt with yoga friends! We will meet on the following weekends:
September, 27-29, 2013
October 25-27, 2013
November 22-24, 2013
January 24-26, 2014
February 21-23, 2014
April 25-27th, 2014
May 23-25th, 2014
June dates TBA
Proposed Daily Schedule:
9:00- 1:00 a.m- Client #1
1:00- 3:00 p.m.- Lunch, rest, swim and hike
3:00- 7:00 p.m.- Client #2
Evenings- go home or stay in the yurt and have a campfire!
The idea is that each weekend would be 25 hours of practicum. If you completed 6 weekends total, you would have your 150 hours of practicum for IAYT. We are offering 8 total weekends in case you need to miss a few for personal obligations.
One of the goals of this program is to see the same yoga therapy clients over time and see how their yoga practices progresses over many months. For this reason you will be asked to either a) be a yoga therapy client or b) bring a yoga therapy client that is willing to come back over and over. Each person in the program will be asked to participate by bringing us clients/ offering their body and mind for study.
We will see 6 people per weekend, each having a 4-hour block of time. The first 2.5 hours will be hands-on work with the client. The last 1.5 hours will be discussion about how and why we choose specific tools and techniques.
The cost for each weekend is $275 and this includes teachings, lunchtime meal, and facility fee. You will need to put down a $200 deposit to reserve your spot in the 6-month program. You may pay in full at the beginning or pay month-by-month. If you choose to pay month-by-month, please pay the weekend fee 30-day prior to the start of each weekend workshop. If you cannot attend, kindly give 72 hours notice so that another participant can make arrangements to take your spot. In this case, your $275 could be transferred to another weekend of your choice.
If you would like to stay overnight in the yurt it will be an additional $25 per night. You are welcome to stay both Friday and Saturday nights (not Thursday or Sunday). There is a lovely indoor shower and a kitchenette, refrigerator, etc. for you to use if you choose to stay overnight. You can use the pools and hot-tubs in the evening also and make it a little monthly vacation! Please note that both males and females may choose to stay in the yurt together. The shower is a single shower. You will be responsibly for bringing your own bedding, towels and supplies for the weekend. There are no formal beds for our use in the yurt. We ask that you follow the yamas and niyamas if you choose to stay on this lovely property. Please, no alcohol or drugs and respect the surroundings and the wishes of our hosts. It is a sacred place, as you will see when you arrive!
We are limited to 12 people per weekend. So please let us know early if this program is of interest to you.
