Ghosh Yoga Workshops 2018 – COMPLETE PROGRAM LISTING

Date(s) - 04/11/2018 - 04/15/2018
All Day

Bikram Yoga Capital Area

You are invited to 5 days of Ghosh Yoga workshops and Bikram Yoga classes in East Lansing, Michigan. To deepen and broaden your yoga practice and teaching in totally new ways. To expand your understanding of the yoga you practice and share with others. 

Read more here for a basic introduction to the differences among Bikram Yoga, Ghosh Yoga, and “hot yoga”.

To Explore Next Levels of Practice

Ida Jo and Scott Lamps are the head teachers of Ghosh Yoga, and the coordinators of the Ghosh’s Yoga College Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training, led by Bishnu Ghosh’s granddaughter, Muktamala. They have published the Ghosh Yoga manuals and lead the Ghosh Practice Weeks around the United States. They are true learners and teachers.

Learn about Lineage History

The Ghosh Lineage has a rich history, including therapeutic exercises and intermediate/advanced asana practice. Learn and practice the approach of other renowned 20th century students of Bishnu Ghosh. Update your understanding of the origins of Bikram Yoga, in a challenging time in the “hot yoga” world.

Strengthen Your Teaching

Teachers who complete the full weekend of workshops plus BYCA classes will develop an edge in their teaching that other master classes and recertifications do not address. You will learn more about therapeutic exercises as precursors and preparation for asanas, safe and progressive ways to practice the intermediate and advanced postures in the Ghosh Lineage, and methods for enhancing your teaching of Bikram’s Beginning Yoga Class in important ways. 

note for Original Hot Yoga Teachers: All Ghosh Workshops and BYCA classes taught by Ann count toward Original Hot Yoga Association continuing education hours.  Teachers who complete all 8 workshops plus 2 of Ann’s Bikram Yoga classes will complete 20 hours of continuing education credits towards the OHYA 30-hour benchmark.
