Watch: Building Blocks of Balance at Yoga Vibes

My colleagues at Carolina Yoga Company and I are building a library of targeted videos for Yoga Vibes. You’ll be treated in the near future to wonderful content from Alexandra DeSiato, Jenni Tarma, and Laura Terry—some of Laura’s super helpful videos are already available.

My first series is Building Blocks of Balance. It consists of three short videos that you can do on their own or combine into a balancing-pose bonanza.

Find these and 100+ other classes from me, from short to long, at Yoga Vibes!

Content Role Model: Jenni Tarma

Last month, I launched the Content Workshop, a workbook course for movement teachers. (Read all about it here, and use the code SRWORKSHOP to save $10 on it or on the package of the Content Workshop and the Movement Workshop through May 31.) As I developed the course, I ran it past my most trusted colleagues for feedback. Each of them has developed some really useful content of her own, and I’m delighted to highlight these women’s excellent work on Thursdays in May.

I’ve saved Jenni Tarma for last! Jenni and I met when she took the online version of Teaching Yoga to Athletes. The thoroughness of her homework assignments blew me away, and I forwarded an extra-credit assignment she wrote on yoga for surfers right to my editor at Yoga Journal, who ran it as is. We met in person when she came to assist me at Kripalu (embarrassingly for me, that is when it finally sunk in that her name—she’s Finnish—isn’t pronounced like Jenny, it’s Yen-ni).

Learn from Jenni via:

“Sage Rountree’s Content Workshop is as thorough and thoughtful a course as one could wish for. The depth and detail included make it useful both for people getting started and wanting to learn from the ground up, as well as the seasoned content creator looking for structure and guidance in refining their output. Highly recommended!”

I’m so grateful that we have Jenni leading the team at Carolina Yoga Company, and excited to grow together. If you’re inspired by her as I am, you can get started helping people with content of your own by taking the Content Workshop.

Content Role Model: Alison Heilig

Last month, I launched the Content Workshop, a workbook course for movement teachers. (Read all about it here, and use the code SRWORKSHOP to save $10 on it or on the package of the Content Workshop and the Movement Workshop through May 31.) As I developed the course, I ran it past my most trusted colleagues for feedback. Each of them has developed some really useful content of her own, and I’m delighted to highlight these women’s excellent work on Thursdays in May.

Alison Heilig is another colleague I met through Kripalu—she took both my weekend and my weeklong programs there in 2017, then returned this year to assist me, much to our students’ benefit and delight. In between, she came to Carrboro to take Sequencing Yoga Classes from Welcome to Namaste (this is something you can do in person June 24–28, 2019, or online anytime at Sage Yoga Teacher Training). Alison has a wonderful skillset: she is a running coach and ultramarathoner, a CrossFit coach and competitor, a certified personal trainer, and a bang-up writer and yoga teacher. She also gives feedback in a way that’s both kind and inspiring, which is great for everyone who comes into contact with her in a classroom setting. And to complete the circle of inspiration, she is capable of eating nine egg whites in one sitting!

See her skills in action:

Here’s what Alison has to say about the Content Workshop. “This training breaks down the content creation process so beautifully. It helped me create and implement a simple system of creation, promotion, and evaluation that is both repeatable and sustainable. It also inspired me to finally get moving on some projects that I’d been sitting on for far too long and gave me lots of tools to make it happen. I highly recommend this fabulous training for anyone looking to elevate their content creation, think bigger picture, and generate revenue.”

I’m so grateful to work with and to learn from wonderful people like Alison! If you’re inspired by her as I am, you can get started helping people with content of your own by taking the Content Workshop.

Last Few Slots: Core Strength for Real People, May 19–20

We have just a few spots left in this weekend’s Core Strength for Real People workshop at Carrboro Yoga. Join for both Saturday and Sunday, or for just Saturday morning and/or afternoon. Don’t worry—it won’t be 3–12 hours of core work. We’ll also cover the context of why, how, and when to do core exercises, as well as how to complement them with stretching and rest. There will be plenty of the latter!

Can’t be there in person? Find short, do-able, combinable core routines at corestrength.sagerountree.com. Sign up for my newsletter and you’ll get a code for access to any one routine—sign up here.

WHAT: CORE STRENGTH FOR REAL PEOPLE INTENSIVE
WHEN: SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, MAY 19 AND 20, 10:00 A.M.–5:00 P.M.
WHERE: CARRBORO YOGA COMPANY, CARRBORO (NEXT TO CHAPEL HILL/DURHAM), NC

Saturday’s sessions are open to everyone and can be done à la carte; Sunday’s sessions are for movement teachers from any background, and build on what we’ll learn Saturday. Yoga Alliance–registered teachers will earn 12 continuing education hours, and the course fulfills an elective requirement for the Carolina Yoga Company 500-Hour Advanced Studies Yoga Teacher Training.

Saturday Morning, 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.

In this session, open to students and teachers alike, we explore the fundamentals of the anatomy and kinesiology of the core, and the physiology of adaptation to exercise. Don’t worry—it’s not dry! Once you wrap your brain around the simple principles we’ll learn in this session, you’ll be able to devise your own core routines to keep you strong and balanced over the years. We’ll finish the morning session with a full Core Strength for Real People class to integrate what we’ve learned.

Saturday Afternoon, 2:00–5:00 p.m.

In this session, open to students and teachers alike, we apply the morning session’s theory as we explore segments of core routines to keep you strong and balanced over the years. (You are also welcome to join for this session only.) All along the way, we’ll try the moves and talk about how to do them safely, why to do them, what they work on, and when to include them in practice. We’ll finish the afternoon session with a friendly restorative practice to jump-start your recovery from the day’s work.

Sunday, 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. and 2:00–5:00 p.m.

In this full-day session for movement teachers from any tradition, we examine the pedagogy of teaching core work to students in a group. We’ll explore ways to make sequences easier and more challenging while still being inclusive of everyone present. Using our understanding of physiology from Saturday morning’s session, we’ll determine when and how to stretch and rest in the context of a full class. We’ll finish the morning session with a full Core Strength for Real People class, then break for lunch from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

After lunch, we’ll practice putting together a full core class. You’ll devise, workshop, and revise a segment from a class, then plan a full class sequence that complements what you’ve taught. You’ll learn how to replicate this to create your own sequences and classes using the principles we’ll work with all weekend, and, after a sweet recovery practice at the day’s end, you’ll leave ready and excited to teach fun, accessible core-strength classes to groups of every level.

One session, Saturday: $60
All day Saturday: $100
Full weekend: $200

Content Role Model: Terry Cockburn

With Terry, my 2013 assistant, at Kripalu

Last month, I launched the Content Workshop, a workbook course for movement teachers. (Read all about it here, and use the code SRWORKSHOP to save $10 on it or on the package of the Content Workshop and the Movement Workshop through May 31.) As I developed the course, I ran it past my most trusted colleagues for feedback. Each of them has developed some really useful content of her own, and I’m delighted to highlight these women’s excellent work the next few Thursdays.

Terry Cockburn is a kindred soul. She is a runner, a yoga teacher, and a studio owner (visit Freeport Yoga Company in Freeport, Maine). We met when she took my weekend workshop on Yoga for Athletes at Kripalu, and she’s since assisted me and others there. We talk on the phone about studio issues from time to time, and text regularly during football season (Terry’s greatest fault is her New England Patriots fandom.)

Check out Terry’s teaching by visiting:

Here’s what Terry has to say about the Content Workshop. “When great ideas bubble up, they might get scribbled on a napkin or in the margins of a notebook—if they even make it that far! Sage has created a foolproof way to not only externalize those winning ideas, but to bring them to fruition. The Content Workshop contains comprehensive tools and strategies to help clarify and organize your message and effectively reach your target audience. Easy to follow, and something that will really get the creative juices flowing, this truly is the formula for success in creating and developing your valuable content.”

I’m so grateful to know wonderful people like Terry! If you’re inspired by her as I am, you can get started helping people with content of your own by taking the Content Workshop.

Content Role Model: Alexandra DeSiato

Last week, I launched the Content Workshop, a workbook course for movement teachers. (Read all about it here, and use the code SRWORKSHOP to save $10 on it or on the package of the Content Workshop and the Movement Workshop). As I developed the course, I ran it past my most trusted colleagues for feedback. Each of them has developed some really useful content of her own, and I’ll share them over the next four Thursdays.

Let’s start with Alexandra DeSiato, my collaborator on the book Lifelong Yoga and at the blog of the same name. Alexandra is an English professor as well as a yoga and Pilates teacher, and her communication skills, both written and in person, are absolutely wonderful and clear. Alexandra also has these excellent resources for you:

Here’s her nice testimonial on the Content Workshop: “With this offering Sage helps yoga teachers find an authentic way to market their skills and expertise. As yoga teachers, we are givers. We’ve found something that works for us, and we want to share it with others. But even if you have something really good to share, unless you figure out how to share it well (and widely), or your energy and expertise go to waste. This workshop offers a step-by-step program to help instructors find a clear voice around content, figure out how and where to market that content, and then smartly create good content so that the people who most need it will be able to find it.”

I’m so grateful to work closely with wonderful people like Alexandra! If you’re inspired by her as I am, you can get started helping people with content of your own by taking the Content Workshop.

New Course: The Content Workshop

Meet the Content Workshop, the latest course at Sage Yoga Teacher Training!

Ready to take your reach beyond the movement classroom? Do you have useful advice to share with your audience, but feel unsure about how to do it and where to start? In the Content Workshop, I show you how to share your gifts with the world by—yes—creating content. Whether your strength is in photography, podcasting, or writing, this workbook course will get you clear on planning, generating, and promoting your work.

The course includes over an hour of lecture, a workbook, and plenty of resources to guide you toward creating whatever content you are excited about.

(And yes, I do somewhat cringe at the word content, but I can’t find a better way to describe it!)

This course is a sister to the Workshop Workshop, another workbook course that walks you through conceiving, creating, placing, teaching, and evaluating movement workshops. Now through May 31, the code SRWORKSHOP will get you $10 off either the Content Workshop or the already-discounted bundle of the Workshop Workshop and the Content Workshop.
