RAPOLANO TERME, TUSCANY 19, 20, 21, 22 MAY 2011
Stephanie has been living in Pune, where she studies with the Iyengar family and where she helps with medical classes. Stephanie has a deep understanding of the teaching of B.K.S. Iyengar and has the ability to transmit it in a clear and precise way. The full program is six workshops of four days in three years and the same program is done in different other places around the world. The dates for Italy: first part 19-22 May 2011 second part 25-28 November 2011 third part 30-31 March - 1-2 April 2012 fourth part 27-30 October 2012 fifth part 10-13 May 2013 sixth part 20-23 September 2013 Stephanie words about the entire program: I am writing this to give you some back-ground to the therapy courses and how I have put them together. So far I have completed the full six part courses in Koln, Edinburgh, Bristol, Manchester, London and San Diego, I have them currently running in Israel, Moscow (2), New York, Naples (Florida), Los Angeles, Canada, South Africa and soon to start in Australia. An entire course is a series of six, 4 day visits. Each visit can be seen as further levels or stages, but really they are best seen as layers, because it is a process of learning to see, teach and adapt on increasingly subtle levels. Throughout the entire course I am trying to bring to the teachers an interest in observation, exploration and inner reflection in their own practices. This is where the knowledge has to come from. Though I do give out straight practical solutions, I am trying to keep away from just giving out prescriptions and formulas. The reason why I have structured the course is because it is more a teacher education than me imparting info. My aim in the series of six visits is essentially to give the teacher the resources and skill to be able to ‘problem solve’ each situation that comes infront of them. So it is not a course of imparting lists of sequences and props for ailments, rather the emphasis is on observation and experiential understanding that comes from the teachers own practice.
