As a teacher of yoga the art of yoga assists is one of deep understanding: understanding of your own motivations and biases, and asking ourselves what we are here to actually do. 


Uncover your own understanding

When we are assisting in yoga there are many elements to look out for in someone; their consent, their reasons to practice, their energy, and their own unique anatomical patterns. We can then assist someone in a posture based on what is actually needed, placing the students needs at the heart of the assist, helping them to uncover their own personal process and internal understanding.

This half day workshop will look at the delicate components that come up when assisting someone. We will look at how to meet someone in relationship to yoga, and the communication between two people when an assist is taking place.

We will look at a number of postures and compare how to assist different physiologies, emphasising the skill of teaching to a unique individual.

The yoga adjustment workshop will include:

  • Understanding patterns
  • Anatomy Movement theory
  • Discussion on consent and meeting a student in this way.
  • How to begin to see a body
  • Hands-on assists, or yoga adjustments, to a number of different postures

What you will gain from the workshop

You will begin to notice students in a new way, observing the unique patterns that a student is presenting and being able to help them with that.

You will be able to see a number of ways that yoga adjustments can be applied.
