Hands-on assists can be an incredibly potent tool for helping yoga students find better alignment, relaxation, stability, and extension. Learn through this five points I created from my years of teaching and assisting my teacher and global community.

The Art and Skill of Hands-on assist

I designed this 3 hours workshop specifically to empower yoga teachers to build their confidence and learn in a fun, supportive environment. This workshops is divided in groups of asanas: Standing Asanas, arm balances, backbends, forward bends, hip openers, twisting and inversions.

I based the workshop on the 5 key principles I use with my own students in class and when assisting the global community.

1. Breathe
2. Ground
3. Intention: Love + Confidence
4. Focus
5. Purpose

Feeling confident when assisting students makes all the difference for you and them.
