Art of Adjusting is a 20-hour Immersion for beginner Yoga Teachers and experienced Teachers seeking to refine their skills.
This workshop intensive will build your confidence in offering hands-on adjustments to your students. By deepening your knowledge of optimal shape in many of the basic yoga asanas and learning energetic principles known as the Universal Principles of Alignment, which bring the physical body into optimal alignment with its natural blueprint, your competence as a teacher will grow immensely.
Throughout the course, you will broaden your understanding of key information about the energetics of touch, energetic maintenance, types of touch and offering safe and effective adjustments to your students. You will also expand your teaching skills regarding pose knowledge, verbal cueing and language, sequencing, and types of students. Hands-on adjustments will be taught and practiced throughout the workshop, specifically how to adjust general shape of the pose and offer refinements to take a student deeper through the principles.
Additionally, through exploration of all of the above, plus adjustments for intermediate/advanced postures, you will deepen your own practice and studentship. You will also learn how to offer touch that is calming and relaxing, including appropriate and effective adjustments for bhalasana (child’s pose), savasana, and learn appropriate postures for meditation and pranayama and how to use props to support these postures as necessary.
