If you’ve seen the impressive images of yogis in arm balances and wondered how they do it this is the workshop for you.   Arm balances need a combination of strength, technique, focus, flexibility and confidence.   With her usual sense of fun and humour, Irina will guide you through some practices to engage the core muscles need and to develop heat and strength in the body.  By the end of the workshop we aim to have you feeling confident and “taking flight”.

The Art of Hands-on Assisting & Adjusting One Day CPD

Friday 23rd November, 10 – 5pm

This workshop will give you the knowledge and practical skills to feel much more confident in why and how you can use physical touch in a more skilful way as a teacher.

Effective, sensitive and appropriate use of touch can be a great teaching tool but is often an area that teachers feel unsure of. During this workshop for yoga teachers and teachers in training we will be exploring the ethics and practice of using hands-on techniques with our students. Using lecture, discussion, and practical pairs or group work we will be looking at the following over the course of the day:

·        The ethics and considerations of manual cueing

·        Different approaches to hands on adjustment

·        Why might we use physical touch in the first place?

·        What makes a good adjustment?

·        Body placement of the teacher – where and why?

·        How to know what is appropriate for individual students

·        Appropriate pressure, sensing and feeling
