Assisting provides a wonderful opportunity to support your students, facilitate attunement to the wisdom of their own bodies, and affirm their efforts.  A posture is never inherently bad or wrong. A teacher is there to support the student’s exploration into her/his own body and how it works and feels. In this module we will explore

  • Creating an empowering, confident approach to assisting students in their practice

  • Establishing safe, effective & appropriate touch

  • Different types of assisting – when, why & how to use them

  • Learn key physical assists for all major asana groups: Sun Salutations, Standing, Forward Folding, Backbending, Twisting, Inversions & Savasana

  • Direct experience of physical assists in a classroom setting
