Assisting study part 2 with Moena - 20 uur training
ASSISTING PART 2
THE FOLLOW UP OF
THE CRAFT OF LETTING THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE THEIR FULL POTENTIAL
In this sequel of the 20 hour Assisting Study we’ll continue the craft of manual Assisting: We will practice on more poses of each Asana group and learn to Assist more advanced poses.
The word (hands on) assists communicates the idea that there are 2 sentient beings interacting together on various levels of consciousness simultaneously. The giving of yoga assists is a craft; they’re never static; they compromise a flowing dance of body, breath and energy. The assists are based on continuous focus and awareness of the relationship between the student and the teacher in the process. Through hands on assist we have the potential to convey information clearly and directly, without words. Touch accelerates the process. Touch can provide directional cues, help to identify with the processes in the body and release unconscious resistance or tightness, increase awareness and even help to diminish pain.
In this new 20 hours study we will practice:
Assisting more poses of all Asana groups on different experience- levels of the students
Giving hands on assists in more advanced poses like deep twists, binds and balances
Modifications of assisting for injured students
Recognizing different body types
Working with different props to give the most beneficial assist
Step by step the principles of assisting to give each student the most suitable assist
Assisting in a physical and energetic flow
“In class private”: giving assists throughout a complete class
This Study helps to make you feel confident in that whole process of the beautiful craft of assisting so you can bring the best out in your students!
