A follow-up 6-hour course to develop and consolidate your hands-on-assists skills.
Following our successful first part, this is another opportunity to deepen your understanding, practice and experience of this vital component of teaching yoga in person, full of practical tips, advice, and a chance to try out a range of different assists. You will leave with increased confidence in helping your students improve and deepen their practice.
In this session, we will go through:
* the principles behind offering hands-on assists,
* things to look out for and how to read bodies
* how to offer the most attentive, assured and supportive touch in an appropriate way
We will briefly re-cap on the assists to the foundational poses that we covered in part 1, so if you haven’t attended, you won’t feel like that you have missed out and if you have, this session will be an opportunity to practice what you have learned.
We will then cover a wider range of:
You will get a chance to try and each assist on the group and receive immediate feedback. Based on requests from the previous participants, we will also include a short section where each participant will get to lead a very short sequence to the group, in order to practise the art of teaching and assisting at the same time.
This practical, hands-on session is for you if you have hardly any experience of offering hands-on-assists as part of your classes, or if you have been including it, but want to refine and expand your knowledge base.
Here is what some of our participants said after the last session:
“Shira was very attentive to what we wanted to get out of the workshop. I enjoyed the way that she encouraged us to observe the student and consider what would be the most beneficial assist, rather than just do an assist that I know.”
