Want to learn some of the best approaches and tricks gleaned from teaching daily for more than 10 years? Then join MJH for a series on safe and effective assisting.

Modern postural yoga uses the body as a reference point for understanding the deeper dimensions of practice. An effective posture builds strength and flexibility, calms the nervous system, and works systematically with other postures to unlock certain understandings. Everyone has their own set of real and perceived limitations, and working with a good assist helps breath through from the unreal.

Over the course of this series, we’ll go over the philosophical and the practical of assisting in a yoga room. Participants will learn how see bodies and construct an approach that teaches using voice, intention, and touch. A good assist can offer guidance, make corrections, and sometimes even help with adjustments that a practitioner may not be able to make on their own.

Because this will be a collaborative workshop style, participants can expect lots of hands on time both receiving and giving assists in: standing postures, backbends, hip openers, twists, and inversions.
