The Art of Hands on Assists for Yoga Teachers

 November 24, 2018   11.30am - 5pm  with Dawn Wright

Yoga Teacher Training Effective, sensitive and appropriate use of touch and hands-on assists can be a great teaching tool, but is often an area that teachers feel unsure of.

During this workshop for yoga teachers and teachers in training we will be exploring the ethics and practice of using hands-on techniques with our students. Using lecture, discussion, and practical pairs or group work we will be looking at the following over the course of the day:

  • The ethics and considerations of manual cueing
  • Different approaches to physical cues
  • Why might we use physical touch in the first place?
  • What makes a good adjustment?
  • Body placement of the teacher – where and why?
  • Considerations on what is appropriate for individual students
  • Appropriate pressure, sensing and feeling

This workshop will give you the knowledge and practical skills to feel much more confident in why and how you can use physical touch in a more skillful way as a teacher.
