Releasing and healing our Emotional Body through Postures and Breath-work

HRS · all levels

It is said that the human being has a powerful guiding voice within; it is the voice of our intuition and wisdom.  But this voice is commonly drowned out by the noise in our mind.  The noise is often caused from chaotic or congested emotions from stress, depression, PTSD, or anxiety.  In this workshop we will begin with a talk by Max, then move into a gentle breath-initiated movement sequence.  In the second half of the workshop will focus on floor postures and breath-work to release the mind and body from long-held emotions that impede our happiness and our ability to sleep well. Bring your mat and writing materials.

We currently have an epidemic of stress and anxiety in the world that is stifling happiness, meaning, and connection with each other.  In the face of such a pervasive problem, it might seem that something as simple as breathing patterns couldn’t possibly help. But scientific research and Max’s personal experience engaging with tens of thousands of people around the world have both found that utilizing conscious breathing patterns for a few minutes every day is the most productive approach for creating immediate relief from stress and anxiety. In this event, Max will lecture and demonstrate, followed by interactive instruction. Max teaches leaders how to use your breath to trigger more inspiration, focus, health, and better sleep. Be sure to bring writing materials for writing answers to a series of questions that will help you identify the causes of your anxiety.

Teacher training

How to inspire and teach your students to Breathe

2HRS · for teachers and teachers in training

This special workshop was designed by Max to help teachers to guide their students on how to breathe and why to breathe. In global cities like London, getting a class to breathe deeply can be like pulling teeth. This is because in contemporary urban life there is so much stress, so much competitiveness, and so much frozen energy around people’s hearts; transforming this to a new healthy state is a huge leap. For some, best sets is the hardest part of one’s yoga practice because it is in the chest that we keep our grief and our old memories, and to open the chest would mean dealing with a new personality and a new life—a massive transformation. This is what we simultaneously both strive for and fear. It is like we are stepping on the accelerator and the brake pedal at the same time. This workshop will include a lecture, standing and seated breath work, and key yoga postures and movements that cause the students to breathe deeply even if they are resistant or not paying attention. This workshop will help you to embrace teaching breath work to students with new confidence and knowledge. Bring your mat and writing materials. (Please no recording equipment)

Max Strom’s Communication Series

This series is divided into two 4HR sessions over two days

Known as an exceptional communicator, and teacher, Max shares indispensable tools and insights to help you become a better teacher or manager by improving your ability to communicate, verbally and nonverbally. People often assume that great communicators are able to speak clearly, concisely, and lovingly because they were born that way, but this is rarely true.  Teachers and leaders who excel with communication often simply work harder at it and never stop studying and improving their art.  This seminar offers several techniques for refining and empowering your ability to communicate what you want to say in the tone you want to say it with. You will not find workshops for teachers like this anywhere else. Bring writing materials. (Please no recording equipment)

Seminar for Yoga teachers and teachers in training

Teaching Yoga from a Universal Platform

3HRS · for teachers and teachers in training

Today telling someone who you just met that you are a yoga teacher could be as much of a liability as something worthy of admiration. And this is because the modern yoga-world has adopted a pop culture that has reached the global media, mostly due to the scandals of charismatic narcissists dressed in lycra. Perhaps it is time that we all take the second and third look at what we are doing, and why we are doing it. Are we really creating an environment that welcomes people of all religions, atheists, and even cynics?  Would soldiers, police officers, and your own mother feel comfortable in your class? 

The capacity for transformation is present in each of us. In this teacher’s intensive you will learn how to guide ordinary people to experience extraordinary healing and transformation from a universal platform, meaning it is inclusive as opposed to exclusive. Whether or not the student has a stiff body or a rigid schedule, this intensive will offer an approach to yoga postures; breathing, meditation, and ethical living that will help others to access healing and transformation within their practice.

Subjects include:

  1.  Teaching and communication from a universal platform. 
  2. Principles of minimalist Hands-on Adjustments and Hands-off Adjustments
  3. Breath/energy cultivation for beginners and those with anxiety.
  4. How to introduce meditation and stillness to people with hyperactive minds
  5.  Leadership

Bring your mat and writing materials. (Please no recording equipment)

Helpful reminders:

  • Do not eat at least one hour before practice and eat lightly.
  • Dress in loose fitting clothing.
  • Arrive a few minutes early & leave your smart-phone in your car.
  • Before class, inform Max of any injury or special condition.

Breathing workshops are not advisable if pregnant.

The Three Imperative

08.30AM—05.00PM (2HR lunch break)

Technology has expanded at such a rate that nearly every aspect of our world has been affected — yet there has been no corresponding expansion of personal happiness. Instead, we find that the wealthiest societies of the world have become depressed, anxious, sleep deprived, and over-medicated.  At the deepest levels of human fulfillment, it seems that we grossly overestimate what technology can do for us.  In response, this special workshop reveals an internal, human technology capable of empowering the most meaningful areas of our lives and leading us to deeper levels of happiness. 

We will explore the essential elements of The Three Imperatives, a transformational and healing practice that Max Strom is so highly regarded for and can accelerate change from the inside out.

  • The Imperative of Self-Study
  • The Imperative of Lifespan Management
  • The Imperative of Healing and Transformation

The morning will consist of a lecture followed by a full practice of breath initiated movement and yoga postures. The Afternoon will go more deeply into the essential elements Max Strom works with, such as:

  • Transformational Breathing
