ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY:
This training dives into the anatomical structure of various asanas to truly understand how we can use touch to positively effect the pose. The foundation, rotational energy, skeletal limitations and tissue mobility plus range will inform us to the most powerful and appropriate adjustment. This module gives you the skills to quickly and accurately read the body and become fluent in the art of assisting.
Physical touch in yoga provides not only the potential for a mechanical adjustment in the asana, but also a potentially profound energetic conversation. In the Advanced Assisting Module, we will discuss the potential energetic impact of adjusting, when is touch appropriate, when might it be best not to use touch, and how to ensure that the energetic dialogue is not susceptible to misinterpretation.
PILLARS OF EFFECTIVE ASSISTING:
As with the practice of asana, learning to become fluent in the language of assisting means that you need to have a solid foundation. This module will provide you with the tools to quickly and accurately assess a body in any pose and determine the best course of action to use your words, energy and touch to deepen your student’s experience of the asana and the practice of yoga.
