Hands on Assisting

Good yoga assists allow students to experience healthy alignment and gain confidence in their poses. Confident students enjoy class, avoid injury, and are able to build a strong and consistent practice.

This workshop will be hands on. Under Elizabeth's guidance you will practice effective and safe assists for several common yoga poses. From that foundation you will be able to approach any pose and give a good assist. You will leave this workshop confident in your ability to approach students of all levels and make a positive connection.

This training is relevant for teachers of all styles of yoga, both new and experienced. Interested students are also encouraged to attend!
