Anatomy, Alignment & Assists
Offering the gift of loving healing touch…
The art of assisting students requires knowledge, intuition and confidence. This workshop training focuses on physical and subtle body anatomy using interactive learning and feedback to develop the skills and tools for teaching safe, intentional, meaningful yoga classes.
You will learn the art of observation, client assessment, and assisting each student in a kind, conscious, connected and constructive manner. You will deepen your understanding of how daily functional movement, emotional stress and past experiences manifest in the physical and energetic bodies; and how you as a teacher can have a positive impact on students health and well-being. Partner and workgroup exercises are used to develop emotional intelligence, class sequencing, assisting skills, and inspirational authentic teaching.
