Touch can be a powerful and effective tool when it is warranted and consented to. We are three dimensional beings, each with our own understanding of our body and the world around us. Developing an eye for embodiment is a big piece of the picture when approaching and applying any hands-on technique. In this training, we will spend a good deal of time exploring what and how we see, so that we can approach adjustments (or assists) with care, caution, humility, grace. Hands-on adjustments are neither arbitrary or mandatory, but rather an opportunity to offer a shift in perspective and a possible pathway to insight.
This training is designed for yoga teachers who wish to implement a sound and sensible approach to hands-on adjustments in both group and private class settings. You will learn how to use Katonah Yoga theory, tools, and techniques to explore effective ways to guide your classes visually, spatially, and verbally. We will explore geometry, asana archetypes, accessible alignment, and adjustment techniques in an in-depth and pragmatic way, leaving you with a tool box of skills to use to your advantage in life and in teaching.
