Yoga Assists Immersion Day for Teachers with Amrita
October 08, 2017
10:30 am
Event Information
Assisting another person well while teaching a class takes awareness, sensitivity, forethought, knowledge of the anatomy and energy of the body and practice! We apply yoga assists to help grounding, alignment, ease, a sense of lightness, and for relaxation.
During this full day immersion you will practice giving and receiving each other assists, and learn a lot from trying it out! At the end of the day you will be able to apply a variety of assists on your students with confidence.
During the workshop you will first experience receiving assists from Amrita during a Jivamukti style vinyasa practice. Amrita will give a short talk on the fundamentals of Yoga Assists to give you more background and you will learn basic assists through watching, giving and receiving and feedback, working in partners.
We will also look at the application and use of props for our students to experience poses more deeply. At the end we will also practice giving and receiving assists for Shavasana/corpse pose, the posture of deep relaxation .
Having taught and studied for many years in the Jivamukti yoga method, where hands-on adjustments are an important component of teaching a yoga class, Amrita is looking forward to sharing some of the knowledge she has gained over the years with other yoga teachers whether you have been teaching for years or are just starting out, this is a fun, informative workshop to add to your skill set.
