About the Event
ASSIST INTENSIVE WORKSHOP: STANDING ASANA | INVERSION | FINAL RELAXATION
In this 10 hour Intensive Assist workshop, we will go through Principles of Hands-On-Assists in Standing Asanas, Inversions and Arm-Balances as well as Final Relaxation Techniques.
Yoga Practitioners receive tremendous benefit from effective hands-on assists that navigate them to discover proper alignment and the deepest possible expression of a pose. Skillful, mindful, conscious assists are a powerful way to deepen a practitioners physical experience of a pose while sharpening their personal awareness.
This workshop is for both teachers and practitioners who would like to deepen their understanding in the principles of safe and effective hands-on-assists and deepen their understanding of the asanas covered.
Class will begin with warming up the body before we begin to assist. Through partner work we will learn the essentials of giving and receiving assists, explore how to support others while improving our own practice in the process. In the workshop we will cover how to use body mechanics to offer effective assists and also learn how to use props as part of assists.
