The Art of Teaching: Body Reading & Assisting
June 4 @ 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM$108
If you’ve ever received a hand-on assist in a class, you know how a simple directional touch can bring you into a deeper understanding of the pose. Learning how to do this for yourself and for others can open up your practice in astonishing ways. In this workshop, we will explore the anatomy of key yoga postures and how these key postures manifest in a variety of body shapes. In this workshop through discussion and practice, we will then explore a multitude of ways that postural assists can be offered – some hands-on and others hands-off. You will leave this day-long intensive with a broader understanding of important foundational and practical skills necessary to teach in a creative, mindful, and rewarding way for the teacher and the student. While the focus is on teaching yoga, this workshop is open to anyone interested in deepening their understanding of the yoga practice. This workshop is part of The Yoga Sanctuary’s Mentoring Program and counts towards continuing education hours.
