For teachers, teacher trainees + dedicated yoga students

This course is a unique opportunity to further develop key skills that will enable you to work with Ashtanga Yoga students in an inspiring, skilful and authentic way. Become a confident, hands-on teacher by learning the fundamental principles behind safe, confident and beneficial adjustments. Learn to hold and maintain a safe space for transformational practice to thrive and flourish.

The course will cover:

  • the alignment principles behind safe and effective adjustments
  • how to give hands-on adjustments
  • how to modify practice for common injuries and contra-indications
  • how to establish a safe “ holding space” that facilitates and supports a transformational practice
  • how to integrate the practices of pratyahara to quiet the senses during dynamic practice
