Healing with Your Hands: Adjustments, Assists and Compassionate Touch in Teaching Yoga


  • Fusion Yoga 6382 West Jefferson Boulevard Fort Wayne, IN, 46804 United States (map)

Whether you are a teacher looking for new information, or a student interested in “how the pose should feel” this weekend will open your eyes, open your mind, and open your body!   Skillful, appropriate, and informed touch have the potential to transport students to a more conscious awareness and self-refinement in their yoga practice. But before we touch and speak we must first see and understand the unique qualities present in an individual student's practice. 

Curriculum:
Learn and practice postural observation skills
Learn and practice effective hands-on adjustments that address common misalignments in a wide variety of poses
Learn and practice “one touch” adjustments - small touches with big impact
Learn and practice adjustments for standing, seated, and reclining poses, as well as backbends and inversions
Deepen confidence in the practice of giving and receiving between teachers and students
