The Art of Alignment & Assists

BodyMindLife master teachers Kat Clayton and Sarah Routhier will lead you through an intensive that’ll hone your ability to give safe, physical assists and alignment cues to take your students deeper into their practice and find freedom on the yoga mat.

What’s covered?

Our 50 Hour trainings have been created to give you an in-depth, intensive study experience that will transform what you know about each subject and support you to build confidence and the ability to share your new learnings with others.

  • You’ll be taught how to assess students and give confident, supportive and advanced adjustments and assists
  • Practical lessons on proper technique and safe alignment
  • How to energetically and physically connect with your students and support them during yoga practice
  • The chance to assist in 15 live BodyMindLife classes on real students
  • One-on-one feedback, guidance and coaching in a fun, supportive and safe environment to build your confidence and craft

After the initial three day training, you’ll start to practice giving and receiving assists for a minimum of six hours. You can organise this on your own time during regular BML classes, at no additional cost.

Your remaining practical hours may be completed by assisting in general public classes at BodyMindLife (minimum of 10 hours) under the guidance of a teacher, once you have completed your six hours of peer to peer practice and have passed your final exam.

After the three days of training you’ll also be required to have a follow up half-day review and attend your final exam on the assessment day.

Who will teach you?

Our studios

Our beautiful, dedicated training studios have been designed for natural light, healing and a sense of calm by architect Ferique Brown.

Based in the heart of Surry Hills, Ferique has used sacred geometry to create spaciousness and spaces that encourages our students to open up, feel safe, be energetically nourished and well.

You’ll have access to secure lockers and be able to freshen up with state-of-the-art showers and change rooms equipped with organic wash products, hair dryers and straighteners.

We also have a Yogi Lounge with hot herbal tea and wifi to connect and recharge on your own or with your fellow classmates before and after lessons.

  • As someone who had always been nervous to touch and assist people, the Art of Alignment gave me the confidence I needed to teach a safe and enjoyable practice.
