For yoga teachers and those in a teacher training program.
The standing poses are the most commonly taught asanas, They offer students strength, stability, stamina and flexibility in an accessible, meaningful way. As teachers, we can help them maximize these benefits with hands-on adjustments to guide them towards a safer, more integrated experience of the pose.
Learn to spot alignment concerns, understand how they impact a student's experience, and provide hands-on guidance to succinctly bring them towards improved health. Each class will explore a commonly taught pose and how to address the most common alignment concerns.
Together we'll gain familiarity with specific hands-on adjustments for each pose, building confidence by giving and receiving the assists to one another. We'll learn how to visually discern the need for a hands-on adjustment, prioritize which student to adjust in a room full of people, and practice moving in to guide the student with grace and confidence.
