This weekend workshop is aimed at teachers and experienced students wishing to deepen their understanding of the postures in the Primary Series. The aim of the weekend is to look at the correct alignment of key postures as well as how to give safe and effective hands on adjustments. We will cover:
Correct alignment of asanas
How to give safe and effective hands on adjustments
The ethics of hands on adjustments
The purpose of adjustments
When it is appropriate to give adjustments and when it isn't.
How to hold the space in both a traditional Mysore style class or in a led class
Modifications for injury, pregnancy, etc
In this workshop we will look at working both physically and energetically with different types of bodies, learning how to observe and look closely, understanding body types, the way people move, their limitations and their potential.
Working in this way with students you have to be able to create and hold a space where students feel safe and secure, where they can trust, relax and let go. At all times you need to stay present and connected.
These weekends are aimed at experienced students and teachers either as a way of deepening your awareness and understanding of your own practice and / or developing your teaching skills.
