The Art of Assisting Asana
Time & Location
About The Event
Join experienced yoga teacher trainer and massage therapist Jennifer Yarro for an immersive week-long workshop to up-level your yoga teaching skills!
Jennifer will share the art of yoga posture adjustments that are safe, effective, practical, and joyful for both the giver and receiver. Adjustments given during yoga practice help to release deep structural tension and open energetic pathways, helping facilitate more depth, awareness, and connection in ones practice.
This experiential week-long immersion is based on Jennifer's years of practicing therapeutic massage, training in structural anatomy and integration, and teaching of yoga asana. Inspiration from her 'Hands-On! Skillful Assists for Yoga Asana' DVD will be explored to include a variety of yoga postures for forward bends, back bends, twists, standing poses, and reclining poses.
This will be an 'hands-on' experiential immersion that will deepen one's skills as a yoga teacher and/or increase one's awareness of their asana practice as an enthusiastic student of yoga.
We will review basic foundations for assisting including proper body mechanics, basic anatomy for palpation, body reading skills, and mindfulness practices. We will cover a variety of yoga postures for forward bends, back bends, twists, standing poses, and reclining poses. And if there is interest, we will cover how to assist inversions! We will learn basic to more advanced assists. And, perfect the use of assisting through supportive, expertly guided training of how to use our own personal body, range of motion, physical strengths and weakness to feel empowered to offer assists to a diverse population of students.
You will receive a manual for the training upon arrival.
Aside from analyzing many poses and having lots of practicum time, we will also have daily asana & meditation practices.
This program is open to certified yoga teachers and intermediate-advanced yoga practitioners.
