Hands on ASSISTING

January 28, 1-4pm Assisting Foundations
January 29, 1-4pm Advancing Assists
$50 per session, $80 for both

Train with Master teacher Elizabeth DeAngelis. With over 15 years experience training assistants, Elizabeth is a recognized leader in the field. You will leave this workshop confident in your ability to approach students of all levels and make a positive connection.

Interested students and new teachers should take both sessions, experienced teachers may enroll in just the second session. Both trainings will be interesting and engaging for both yoga teachers and interested students.

Assisting Foundations will review the basic principles and techniques of hands on assists. We’ll discuss basic biomechanics and student interactions. We’ll focus on the quality and effectiveness of basic assists using hands on practice and partner feedback. Interested students and new teachers should take this session and may also take the next. Experienced teachers will also enjoy this review and chance to get feedback on their assists.

Advancing Assists will be an entirely hands on training. We’ll build on the foundations of basic assists and student interactions, bringing in more sophisticated and educational skills. In this session we’ll review assisting in flow and how to integrate assisting with teaching. Partner feedback and detailed instruction from Elizabeth will bring your assisting skills to the next level.

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.

These workshops 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.
