Making Sense of It | 300hr YTT Elective

Join us in this 10 hour workshop to practice and play with the senses and to experience how the senses play off each other. Like all body systems, the senses adapt with training. As more sensorial activities are experienced, each sense will show refinement. Each of the five traditional senses (visual, auditory, gustatory, olfactory, somatosensory) will be addressed as well as two additional “inner” senses (vestibular, proprioception). After reviewing each sense, participants will learn ways to enhance class design in order to nurture the body’s systems.

Special Instructions: *This is an elective module for the 300hr Watering Seeds of Transformation Yoga Teacher Training.
