Saturday, June 9
12 pm to 6 pm.
Yoga Detour is known for seamlessly blending physiology and biomechanics with traditional postures. As the creator of this Teacher Training method, Cecily specializes in bridging the gap between functional movement and yoga asana. During this deep dive into the Detour method, she will explore the four main pillars of this approach to practice:
Working from the Centre - spinal mechanics, centration and core stability
Integrating lower body strength and mobility into standing postures
Integrating upper body strength and mobility into backbends and arm balances
Floor Play - finding mobility from the group up
Cecily will demonstrate how to layer these foundational elements of a Detour-style practice into a complete class, honouring the needs of each student while creating a balanced and informed full-body experience.

Anatomy of Movement
10 am to 1 pm
What is the relationship between our musculoskeletal anatomy and the nervous system? How is our nervous system informed by the fascial matrix and vice versa? In what ways do these systems interact to create our personal “body maps”? This workshop will reveal the intricacies of what is happening between the surface of skin and muscle. We’ll explore concepts such as biotensegrity and body blind spots using mindful movement as a vehicle with which to appreciate the wonder of the human body.
Relationships of Movement
2 pm to 5 pm
On the microcosmic level, we can identify relationships in the way our muscles talk to each other, community to produce movement. When we understand the “push” and “pull” forces at play within is, we access a deeper appreciation for how the body is designed. On the macrocosmic level, relationships of movement can be seen in how we interact with our environment: exploring space, contact and play to reveal new layers of potential in our practice. When we move with both intra-personal (within ourselves) and inter-personal (between each other) perspectives, we can begin to understand how yoga truly is a practice of union and connection.
