Hands On or Off? The Art of Yoga Adjustments
with Letícia Padmasri, M.A., E-RYT 500, C-IAYT
September 29 - October 1, 2017
Yoga adjustments can be beneficial in a number of ways, having the potential to take students to a level of deeper awareness and more self-refined practice. Yoga students and teachers appreciate the power and art of adjustments. Yet an essential consideration before providing hands-on assistance is to make clear why one might need it and then decide how to approach it: verbal instruction, physical adjustments, or other teachings.
In this workshop, we will discuss the purpose of Yoga adjustments, learn how to make adjustments effective and safe, and develop postural observation skills. You will study principles that give you more confidence to make decisions and to better help your students.
You will explore:
- Anatomy behind the practice
- Adjustment techniques
- What makes a good adjustment
- A practice with deeper awareness
This is a helpful program for all Yoga teachers, teacher trainers, and dedicated Yoga students.
