Most yoga teachers are trained how to adjust students in their 200 hour, but this training begins the inquiry into a different side of “hands-on assists.” Intelligent adjustments can fix posture alignment, and an aware touch can be a healing experience. Rae and Ginger will be outlining how to meet your students as they are, when and how to assist them into a deeper level of relaxation, and the ways you can begin to tap into your own creative intuition to make a class themed around supported stillness, gentle movement, and grounding touch.
Date: Saturday and Sunday March 2nd and 3rd, 1:15-4:15pm
