Workshops for Yoga Teachers

The Art of Adjusting & Assisting

Whether adjusting alignment in a pose or deepening the pose(assisting), sensitivity, understanding and presence are required. At times a verbal cue is enough to get what you want out of a students posture. Sometimes adjustments need to firm and corrective and at other times, subtle and confirming. Different adjustment are required for different bodies and varying limitations. Develop an eye for improvement and build confidence to make safe, intelligent adjustments.

Suitable for yoga teachers wishing to expand their knowledge and experience or students wishing to deepen their practice. We will focus on techniques that can be applied to several variations and different postures.
