Have you experienced a yoga assist that provided grounding and support, while deepening your pose? A purposeful assist has the ability to help change the way you feel in a posture and experience your practice. Gain a different perspective of your own practice by learning how yoga works from the other side of the mat. 
 
Develop a greater understanding of the poses, while giving and receiving assists. This interactive program will be focused around breath, enhanced observation, and supporting the body's movement in a skillful manner. 

What you will learn:

  • How to become grounded in your own body to support another

  • Skills to give effective hands-on yoga assists

  • Functional anatomy and how it relates to the poses

  • How to observe physical/energetic qualities of yoga poses

  • Create an enhanced experience for students receiving assists
