Assisting provides a wonderful opportunity to support your students, facilitate attunement to the wisdom of their own bodies, and affirm their efforts. A posture is never inherently bad or wrong. A teacher is there to support the student’s exploration into her/his own body and how it works and feels. In this module we will explore
-Creating an empowering, confident approach to assisting students in their practice
-Establishing safe, effective & appropriate touch
-Different types of assisting – when, why & how to use them
-Learn key physical assists for all major asana groups: Sun Salutations, Standing, Forward Folding, Backbending, Twisting, Inversions & Savasana
-Direct experience of physical assists in a classroom setting
Inner Life of a Teacher

Instructors: Alicia Barrett & Leslie Whitecrow
About the immersion:
Are you looking for ways to be more impactful in your teaching? Do you want to give more of your own unique voice to your classes and to create more impactful and authentic experiences with your students?
We believe one of the best ways to live and teach authentically is to understand who you are, what is important to you, and what you really want to give to the world- In essence, to explore your dharma or purpose! This workshop will color outside of the lines of a typical “workshop” and allow you to go deep and explore your inner life and voice!! There will be Asana, discussion and breakout groups and juicy questions!
