Session 4. Julie Gudmestad, P.T.
Yoga and the American Body: It’s Not One Size Fits All
The typical American body has tight legs, tight hips, a weak back and a weak rotator cuff. Yoga can be a great way to help overcome these conditions, but if you (or your yoga students) suffer from any of them, it could also predispose to injury. In this important talk, IYengar teacher and physical therapist Julie Gudmestad shares key insights into what to look out for, and which precautions to take to avoid injury.
Session 5. Dr. Loren Fishman

There are no generalized contraindications, but certain yoga postures are contraindicated for certain medical conditions.

Session 6. Peggy Cappy

You don’t need to be thin, young or a contortionist to do yoga. In this talk, Yoga for the Rest of Us creator Peggy Cappy discusses how yoga can be practiced safely by everyone, whether you are slightly out of shape, very out of shape, or recovering from an injury. Peggy emphasizaes to never underestimate the effectiveness of any modified pose, just because it looks easy.
Session 7. Tias Little
Yoga as Alchemy - The Art of Teaching Yoga
Becoming an effective yoga teacher is not a simple charge, because yoga touches not just the body, but the entire body-mind, says Tias Little, co-founder of Prajna Yoga. In this talk, Tias explores the multi-faceted challenges yoga teachers face, and offers his views on the limitations of the current standards for yoga teacher training. What does it take to offer students the full transformative potential of yoga? How can yoga teachers grow to master the anatomical nuances of yoga postures for students of different skill levels? How can yoga teachers gain a deep, experiential understanding of the mind and all the nuances of the emotional body, as it relates to the practice of yoga asanas? Join Tias as he explores the teaching of yoga as an internal art, and offers his perspective on how yoga teachers can continue to deepen the well they draw from in their teaching.
3:30 pm EDT/12:30 am PDTSession 8. Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D., P.T.
Practicing Yoga - The Whole Picture: Practicing Yoga Won’t Hurt You, But It Might Well Save Your Life.
In this inspiring talk, Judith Hanson Lasater, author of eight books on yoga, including Relax and Renew, 30 Essential Yoga Poses, and Living Your Yoga, takes a step back to look at the bigger picture: Yoga is much more than just the physical poses, although that’s often where we start. The fundamental lesson of yoga is to create a habit of self-awareness, self-listening, self-observing. And therein lies the deepest, most intangible benefits.
