Reni teaches techniques and prop set up to align and support the body. You’ll learn to use blocks, blankets and straps to either restore yourself at home or to work with your students. The techniques stem from Katonah Yoga and are designed to work with all types of students. This workshop is a hands-on training: besides practicing and experiencing different asana and exercises, you’ll learn how to support other people’s bodies. The goal is to develop vision and the skills to confidently and correctly touch and adjust the student's body.
