Tactile learning can occur through contact with an object (like a block or sandbag), when placing your own hands on your body, and, as happens often in yoga, when a teacher places their hands on the body of a student for a variety of reasons: alignment adjustment, breath awareness, grounding, etc.

The Ethics and Art of Hands-on Adjustments is a workshop designed for teachers to develop their knowledge and skills for improved use of tactile cueing. We will discuss the use of touch as a teaching tool, the benefits of touch, reducing harm through touch, and how to improve your own knowledge to support your use of adjustments. We will work through some common postures and posture groups to look at what adjustments might be useful for most students, and explore how to customize adjustments for the individual.
