Join us at Down Dog Yoga in Washington DC!

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.

As students progress they need more sensitive and sophisticated assists to continue their education. This next level training will focus on seeing alignment and helping students to refine their poses.

You will practice corrective, supportive, and deepening poses. Working with many different bodies will increase your confidence and understanding of healthy bio-mechanics. You will leave this training ready to educate and inspire through the power of touch.
