“It is through the alignment of the body that I discovered the alignment of my mind, self, and intelligence.” B.K.S. Iyengar.

The ability to give safe physical assists is a powerful gift that allows you and your students the chance to experience proper alignment, technique and freedom on the mat.

It takes confidence and subtle understanding of energies to adjust in yoga, and this course will cover how to be more aware so you can connect with your students in the best possible way.

In this practical, hands on course you’ll learn how to empower your students to grow and deepen their yoga practice, and understand how to refine your own.
