CPD Yoga Adjusts for Teachers
Jan 17, 2025 - Jan 17, 2025

8 Hour Adjustments Workshop for Teachers

The healing power of physical touch can be measured; Doctors have found, through tests such as MRIs, that there are evident changes in the patterns of brain activity during touch. Certain types of endorphins are released, which combat stress hormones, resulting in a sense of relaxation and peace.

When you receive a confident, safe adjustment from a teacher you know to be experienced & knowledgable, their hands & breathing help us to visit poses in greater depth with more profound understanding of the the energetic dierection & purpose of the pose.

If you are unlucky enough to receive an unwanted, inexpertly applied adjustment, possibly where boundaries are crossed, it can put you off yoga for life & even be construed as physical abuse.

In this workshop we'll look at the more accessible & common adjusts that are useful to us as teachers & discuss the pros & cons of touch after covid & the me too movement.

The following topics will be covered:

Observing first, why would we adjust?

The intended energy of the pose - having a clear intention

Length & stability

Rules of adjusting for the teacher & the student - boundaries & lawsuits

Supporting students breathing


Whole class adjustments
