Besides our regular schedule we hold workshops on philosophy, anatomy, pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. Workshops are important to both students and teachers. Students will learn new concepts through practical experience and teachers deepen their understanding in their field of knowledge. By studying the details of this old tradition we immerse ourselves into a method that has thousands years of knowledge and practice.
Hands-on-Adjustments -Level 1
Limited to 8 participants.
Knowledge of asana adjustments is beneficial for improving your personal practice and is a fundamental part of being an exceptional yoga teacher. This unique hands-on workshop is designed for advanced practitioners, and for new and experienced teachers to increase mastery of yoga adjustments and alignments by covering a variety of techniques, including physical adjustments, verbal cues, as well as other methods that will improve your teaching and deepen your own practice.
We will work on all the important asanas which are normally adjusted in the Ashtanga Practice and will learn a number of ways to adjust each pose, taking into account common injuries, different body types and conditions and alignment problems. As a hand-on workshop, you will gain experience and confidence in making adjustments with feedback from other class participants.
While many yoga studios are moving away from hands-on adjustments due to liability concerns, Ashtanga Yoga Long Island believes that adjustments are integral to deepen a students practice and teaching. This class covers the safest and most effective ways to adjust students in order for them to achieve the full benefits of the postures.
Current students are encouraged to spread the word and invite friends, family and neighbors!
