How to create and offer a safe and nurturing atmosphere that invites practitioners into a memorable practice of these poses. We will talk about the alignment principles and what to look for, what to observe, when to demonstrate, if to assist, when to correct, what to cue and how to deliver effectively.

We will practice dealing with varying needs found in practitioners and will cultivate your skills in a supportive, practical, hands-on environment. You will practice, even photograph and make notes on detailed demonstrations before giving and receiving adjustments with partners of different shape and sizes.

Teaching might mean providing assists that not only inform but transform is a skill built via practice, repetition, and feedback. This will focus on fundamentals, new approaches to old assists and practice via repetition and time. To invite a student to transform within a pose or within their life is a gift and a responsibility. To speak to students and to stand as a leader requires preparation, introspection, and the courage to speak from experience.
