Permission to Play – Riding the Edge in Your Practice & Teaching
Integrating our personal practice into our teaching practice is a never ending experiment that – when it goes well – provides a safe container to explore our personal edges and find our unique voice. Permission to play is permission to not know, to be awkward, to succeed and to fail and thus to learn.
When we allow play or “unknowing” to be a part of our practice, we can drop our ego needs of clinging to being right, or smart or perfect and open the doorway to a more intimate connection with ourselves and others. When we change our perspective on our practice and teaching from wanting to perfect the pose to one of an ongoing learning process then we can find more humor and joy in our practice.
In this workshop we will explore some of the many ways to play with the interweaving of personal practice and teaching.
Our morning session will include and active energetic practice. The afternoon will be restorative in nature.
This workshop is geared toward yoga teachers and serious practitioners.

Carrie Owerko has been teaching yoga and exploring the relationship between body, breath and mind for several years. She holds a Senior Intermediate Iyengar teaching credential and continues her studies with the Iyengar family by traveling to India on a regular basis, as well as by continuous and in-depth studies with her yoga teacher, Patricia Walden. Over the years she has performed in and co-choreographed many yoga demonstrations, including Live: Light on Life, presented at City Center in NYC during BKS Iyengar’s Light on Life US National Book Tour in 2005.
Curiosity, openness, and affection are of the utmost importance in her approach to Iyengar Yoga, as is the integration of science, yoga philosophy, and the poetic imagination in the yoga practice. Most importantly, she loves to explore the relationship of discipline and playfulness and is a firm believer in the power of controlled folly.
