Hands-On Assists for Yoga Instructors
This workshop is perfect for teacher trainees and yoga teachers to research and understand the purpose and practices of hands-on assists within a physical yoga asana practice. Many instructors have a list of questions regarding hands-on assists, and as a result, keep their hands off.
Do you want to take your teaching to another level?
Would you like more confidence in knowing when to assist, placement of touch, and why certain techniques are useful/beneficial?
How much pressure is needed?
How should I stand/place my body? (as the instructor)
What assist is right for this particular student?
The list goes on...
In this 4 hour Yoga Alliance CEU course with experienced instructor Sara Limb, E-RYT-500, you will learn applicable techniques for any style of yoga practice. Sara is often commended and appreciated for her confidence and awareness in the application of hands-on assists, and she will share both technical and intuitive knowledge with you from her 14+ years of experience as a movement instructor. She's been a student of the body and natural therapeutics since her military service, applying her research personally as well as with private clients, teacher trainees, and students of group yoga classes and workshops.
Hands-on assists can be a powerful tool for helping students discover safer alignment, strength, stability and enhanced spatial awareness. Assists can also benefit the student by helping them experience a deeper understanding of their personal expression of each shape.
In this course, you will learn the ins and outs of hands-on assisting and how the use of touch in a safe and effective way can transform your instruction and your students' experience on the mat.
