Learn how to assist your students in a safe, powerful, non-invasive way. Understand just the right way to support them in expanding to where they feel comfortable and safe. During this workshop we will revisit basic principles of alignment that will help you refine your student's postures for more connection and sustainability. Not only will you be able to prevent injury and find deeper variations of the postures for your students, but you will also experience a deeper connection within your own practice.
During this weekend we'll revisit basic assisting before covering more advanced asanas. We will also discuss:
Assisting large groups
Assisting for injuries
Cool Tricks with Yoga Props
Lines of energy and energetic connection in posture
Supporting students in inversions, backbends, balancing postures, and more.
Bring your mat, your journal and writing utensils.
