The Art of Assisting and Adjusting (CANTON)

  • Yoga Strong Studio (CANTON) 5896 Fulton Drive Northwest Canton, OH, 44718 United States (map)

With a curriculum specifically designed for yoga instructors, we will breakdown and examine asanas that are commonly found throughout vinyasa style classes. With each pose we will discuss how to give effective cues as well as several examples of the most safe and effective way to assist a student into and out of a posture.
Following a Baptist power sequence postures to be covered include grounding, folds, twists, back-bends and balance. Wrapping up with the effectiveness of touch in Savasana.

Taking time to inform yourself and practice your assists will develop confidence, and add another layer of purpose to your teaching. In return, your students will not only learn proper alignment, but will gain support and cultivate trust in their own personal journey on the mat.
