This course is directed towards new and old yoga teachers that want to become more familiar with the art of verbal and physical adjustments on their students. The bulk of the course will be on physical adjusting. How to touch, where to touch, when not to touch. What works for some students may not work for others and why. We will be using props such as blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps as well to help students get into the most comfortable or better aligned poses. We will spend time on the abdominal and core area of the body making sure the bandhas are activated and discuss softness and relaxation in asanas to find comfort.
We will go through a long list of poses from the ashtanga primary series as well as variations on those poses.
This course will be instructed in English but Spanish will also be used if students have questions in Spanish.
This course is a continual education course. If you are registered for the Yoga Alliance you are required to complete 30h of continual education every 3 years.
