Yoga Adjusting + Use of Props with Nichi Green

24th-25th September

A Training Weekend For Yoga Teachers and Trainee Yoga Teachers

Feeling a bit stuck on your yoga mat since the pandemic? Afraid to adjust? Lost your confidence a bit? Learn how to adjust students in a safe and professional way that offers insight for both the student and the teacher. With two years of teaching on zoom it seems that many teachers are now glued to their yoga mat and not offering adjustments. Hands on adjustments can be an excellent way to teach a posture and give students a deeper and insightful experience of an asana. Over this weekend we will look at when to offer adjustments, using props to give self adjustments and verbal cueing for each of the asana we study. We will also look at partner work that you can use with students in classes.

This weekend will be a great C.P.D for yoga teachers and a fantastic way to refresh your knowledge and inspire your teaching. This is the first weekend of a series that Nichi will be offering over the next year.
