Upcoming Workshops!

Yoga & Movement Anatomy Training

Warrior Bridge is excited to announce that we will be opening several days of anatomy instruction to the public during our upcoming 200-hour yoga teacher training!


This series of eight three-hour workshops will be taught by Emily Lesinski and Sean Langhaus.

Emily is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and co-lead teacher in the Warrior Bridge Yoga Teacher Training, and hopes to instill a level of understanding for new or practicing yoga teachers that goes beyond names of muscles and joints. In this coursework we will break the body into regions and explore agonist and antagonist muscle groups, biomechanics of joint structure and function, common pathologies and normal variances, and much more. Attendees will come away from this experience with a better understanding of how the body is affected by the yoga and movement practice and hopefully some new ideas on building sequences that are both more effective and safer for yoga students.


Dates And Times:

SAT Sept 22, 2p-5p: Intro Anatomy for Yoga and Movement

Refresh your anatomy vocabulary, or gain a basic set of terms to more easily discuss common movement cues, body parts and tissue types. Strongly recommended if you’ve had no anatomy instruction before taking the rest of the series.


SAT Sept 29, 9a-12p: Spinal Anatomy

The spine is the part of the skeleton that not only protects vital parts of the nervous system, but provides a stable base from which the rest of the body can move. Learn about different regions of the spine and their characteristics, and what “backbending” and “forward folding” really mean, and why your spine moves differently than your friend’s on the mat next to you.


SUN Sept 30, 9a-12p: Hip Anatomy

The hip is the connection of your trunk and pelvis to your lower extremities, and while it is very stable, many yogis have hip pain. Come learn about the structure and function of this large ball-and-socket joint, as well as natural differences in shape and orientation.


SAT Oct 13, 9a-12p: Shoulder Anatomy

The shoulder may be analogous to the hip, but they are structurally and functionally very different. This lecture will delve into the unique joint and muscle structure that holds this joint together while still allowing all the movement our upper extremities need. And if you think handstands are hard, you’ll leave this talk with a better understanding of why!


SUN Oct 14, 9a-12p: Knee/ Elbow Anatomy

The knee joint is the largest weight bearing surface of the body, while the elbow does more than bend and straighten. These two hinge joints are more complex than they first appear, and pain in these areas often stump yoga teachers. Come find a better understanding to keep your students safe!


SAT Oct 20, 9a-12p: Wrist/ Ankle Anatomy

Depending on how we prefer to orient ourselves, our ankles and feet usually connect us to the earth, and our wrists and hands provide dexterity and versatility! The complex anatomy of these areas are not covered in many teacher trainings, yet are so important for our everyday function and for a fulfilling asana practice. Come gain a better understanding of how the feet help to balance your tree pose, and how the hands can create that fingerstand.


SUN Oct 21, 9a-12p: Science of Strength

This lecture will be a survey of concepts and research. What is meant by “strength” or “endurance”? What happens when a muscle “gets stronger”? We’ll discuss these ideas, as well as different types of muscle tissue and how they work best.


SUN Oct 28, 9a-12p: Science of Flexibility

Is “flexibility” the same thing as “mobility”? Can you really get that split by stretching your hamstrings? We’ll talk about many different approaches to flexibility and current concepts that the clinical research world has uncovered.

ICARIAN GAMES WITH WILLIAM JUTRAS

1518672_10152613097751830_870848706641700729_o.jpg



Workshop I - Tumbling Basics and Icarian Drills

Nov 3
Saturday 2-5


This session will begin with a focus on the solo movements most helpful for learning dynamic popping skills. You don’t need to be able to perform a standing front tuck to be good at Icarian, but understanding your body in space and some aerial awareness is key. William will cover some of the tumbling movements most important to start leveling-up.

We will also work in this session on the best partner drills for clean, consistent pops that are an absolute pre-requisite for bigger, riskier skills. Whether you are newer to Icarian or have practiced a lot, you’ll get some individual attention with tips and advice for becoming super-calibrated in your training.


Workshop II - Progressions for the Big Skills


Nov 4 Sunday 2-5


In this workshop we’ll build on strong foundations to work towards more advanced Icarian skills. Interested in pops into or out of foot-to-foot? Want to work towards front tucks or castaways? Advice and drills will be given for bases to generate power while maintaining accuracy, and for flyers to increase body awareness for more skillful shape changes. Some experience with Icarian is necessary to join this workshop.



ABOUT WILLIAM

After twelve years of high level competition in tumbling (acrobatic/gymnastic), William went into the circus world where he started icarian games as his main discipline in Ecole de Cirque de Quebec. He graduated in 2013 and had the chance to perform in Australia, Germany, Austria, France, Switzerland, Italia and Canada. William performed with famous companies such as Cirque du Soleil, Palazzo cabaret (Germany, Austria), GOP varieté (Germany) and he will soon start a new world tour with the Canadian company: Flip Fabrique.
