Adjusts, Assists & Sequencing Strategies For Yoga Teachers – December 15th

Spend the day at the rustic getaway, Rundle’s Mission Lodge in Pigeon Lake, Ab with Mandy McPherson and other teachers in our yoga community. The morning will begin with an in depth look at beginning adjustments & assists and the difference between the two. Nothing to fear here, you will learn basic and safe adjustment techniques and have plenty of time to practice on other teachers and ask questions. Mandy believes in 3 things when it comes to adjusting students: Will you improve their experience? Do you feel confident? Does the student want an adjustment? This course will encourage you to adjust from a alignment & “end feel” based approach, and encourage student feedback. The main postures you will practice adjusting will be downward facing dog, forward folds, twists, balancing, warriors & headstand.

Included as well is learning different ways to assist students with personal cuing, demos and prop assistance. Now it’s time for LUNCH!
