The Art of Touch | Assists & Adjusments for Yoga Teachers

adjustments for yoga teachers

In the post-COVID era and with the MeToo movement exposing years of abuse in the yoga industry, physical touch in yoga class has become a loaded topic, and rightfully so. There are many reasons touch is useful in class and there are an equal number of reasons not to touch.  It takes confidence and an understanding of subtle body energy to effectively offer physical assists to your students. In this workshop we’ll explore the art of assists – how, and more importantly WHEN to assist our students by using the powerful medium of physical touch.  You will hone your ability to give safe, physical assists as well as learn how to use verbal assists to take your students deeper into their practice and help them find freedom on the mat.

With a well-thought-out approach to physical assists in our teaching, we can make our classes safer, more effective, and more empowering for everyone.
