Hands On Assists Yoga Training


Course Outline

Course Outline

The power of human touch, when provided with compassion and understanding, is powerful and causes possibilities that may not otherwise exist in a yoga pose. This training promises to give you the tools to gain confidence in putting your hands on your students and receiving hands on assists so that you may take your teaching and your practice to a new level.

This 2-day training qualifies for CEUs for Teaching Methodology for the Yoga Alliance. You will practice and receive hands on assists for the postures in the Baptiste Yoga Journey Into Power sequence. Hands on assists are often referred to as hands-on adjustments. We prefer to use the term “assists” as our intention is not to fix ourselves or our students, rather we empower students to discover their greatness. There is really never anything to fix in a pose, only the possibility of experiencing something new and great.

The training will consist of:

Daily Yoga Practice: Led by Dr. Trish Corley and supported by a powerful team of highly qualified yoga teachers.

Hands-on Assists: Step by step guidance through various postures with an opportunity to both practice and receive the hands-on assists. This practice will include providing the assists during a live class. All assists will serve the purpose to bring your students into a new direction, to provide them with  greater stability, or to empower them to deepen the pose.

Support: Feedback and guidance from the lead trainer (Dr. Trish Corley) and her assisting team to ensure your growth as a student and teacher.

Connection: Gain the tools to connect with students in ways that will cause them to want to learn more from you and keep coming back to your classes.

Empowerment: Expand the tools you have to inspire yourself and your students to see what is possible in each yoga pose. Gain an understanding of the intention of hands-on assists and what it means to be of service.

Alignment: Gain an understanding of the alignment and form of over fifty yoga poses. An understanding of alignment will give you access to greater hands-on assists.
