Assisting students with confidence and skill is an art that requires practice and hands-on experience. During this immersive weekend for yoga teachers, you’ll have the opportunity to refine your assisting techniques and gain the confidence you need to excel in your teaching.
Throughout the training, we will cover fundamental principles of hands-on assisting and apply them to the flow of surya namaskar A & B, creative namaskars, and intermediate asanas. Delve deeper into the energetics, key actions, and common misalignments of poses, along with their modifications.
You’ll learn to observe students in various asanas, improving your ability to identify misalignments and provide safe and effective assists. Each day will begin with a practice session involving partner work, focusing on namaskars, standing poses, forward bends, backbends, and twists.
