Yin & Yang Yoga: Observe, Assist, Adjust
Being hands on with your students can help them to transform their practice and develop a deeper understanding of their own biomechanics.
As yoga teachers most of us have experienced both the good and bad of being adjusted in a pose. At best it leads to us reaching new heights in our practice, at worst it can lead to injury.
The importance of understanding how the body moves and joint ranges of mobility is paramount to understanding how to assist and adjust a posture. We develop this skill through observation. First we need train ourselves to see what is happening in the body before we begin to assist and adjust a pose.
New teachers often feel hesitant to assist and adjust a student perhaps due to shyness / fear. Perhaps as a teacher you have received a bad adjustment which has put you off being ‘hands on’ with your own students.
In this first workshop the emphasis is on building confidence in your own understanding of anatomy, and asana. You will learn about joint ranges of mobility, how to observe your students, when to give a verbal adjustment and when it is appropriate to assist &/or adjust. The course will help build your own confidence as a teacher, enabling your students to feel safe under your guidance and touch. Alongside this
you will learn how to keep your own body safe to avoid strain or injury whilst assisting or doing an adjustment.
I hope you can join me at the Finnieston Shala and dive deeper into your teaching and understanding of observing, assisting and adjusting asana.
This course is for all yoga disciplines; vinyasa, hatha & ashtanga
