Hands-On Assists ~ Advanced Teacher Training with Amy Ippoliti
4 October - 7 October
Hot Yoga Wellington, Level 2, 139 Featherson Street, Wellington, New Zealand
| Cost: Regular: $699; Late: $799
From October 4th - 7th, join Amy Ippoliti at Hot Yoga Wellington & Lower Hutt for an intimate, advanced teacher training that focuses on Hands-on Assists. This week is one of many modular trainings in the 90 Monkeys Advanced Teacher Training curriculum.
A skillful hands-on adjustment in a yoga class can be transformational for your students. Similarly, an inadequate adjustment can be more detrimental to the growth of your students than no adjustment at all. Learn how to give masterful hands-on assists that are both educational and empowering for your students and discover the art of service and attention through refining and practicing your therapeutic touch under Amy’s watchful eye.
This intensive teacher training is designed to provide you with advanced skills in a wide variety of manual assists in order to add depth and sophistication to your teachings. Hands-on adjustments in the context of group settings, private sessions, or in large public settings will be discussed.
Radically expand your teaching repertoire and explore adjustments for a wide range of postures!
You will learn:
-Different types of touch and when to use them
-The difference between therapeutic, opening, stabilizing, and positioning assists
-Methods for centering yourself before teaching to help enhance the energy behind your touch
-How to unlock the mysteries of your own body and that of your students through a review of clear alignment understanding
-Hold your own body safely during hands on adjustments to prevent injury
-How to connect with a student before giving an adjustment to build trust
-How to give verbal adjustments before touching a student to help empower their understanding
-Methods for touching a student so that they move with you and improve their posture
-Observation techniques to help you know when and who to adjust first in a class
-How to adjust with the breath as your ally
-When to use props as part of an adjustment
-How to communicate clearly in your adjustments
-Alignment concepts that will help you know “how to adjust” not just “which standard adjustment to give”
As with all modules in the 90 Monkeys Advanced TT Curriculum, this topic will be explored through both a career and a business lens.
In addition, you will:
Meet and make fabulous friends!
Enjoy the New Zealand landscape, fantastic restaurants, and great people in Wellington!
