Reading Bodies: Observing and Assisting
WITH BRIDGET WOODS KRAMER
21 + 22 MAY, YOGARISE PECKHAM
We are delighted to welcome back to Yogarise Peckham SYT Bridget Woods Kramer for a weekend training looking at observing and assisting in the post-pandemic world.
The weekend is a wonderful opportunity to really examine how you observe and communicate as a teacher. Teaching yoga has transformed over the past 2 years with many teachers moving to teaching online over the pandemic and now returning to teach in the studio. This weekend will provide the space to come together in the studio to learn how to read bodies, skillfully offer verbal assistance for both teaching online and in-studio, and how to safely offer hands-on assisting.
You will learn progressive principles for ‘seeing’ your students, deepening your understanding and practice of the art and skill of observation in order to be more effective and confident in helping students organise their bodies in held postural alignment as well as in movement.
From this place of observation, you will learn practical and respectful ways to assist so your students can achieve more stability, balance, and freedom in your classes.
WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
This weekend workshop is open to both qualified yoga teachers and trainee teachers.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
By the end of the 2 days :
You will have learnt how to read bodies and hone your observation skills in order to assist and adapt confidently for different students.
You will understand how to give safe and effective adjustments and accessible verbal instructions that allow students to hold postures with deeper refinement and focus.
You will leave this workshop with the skills and confidence to assist your students in an empowering way.
WHEN + WHERE?
The course will take place on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May, 9.30 - 18.00 at Yogarise Peckham.
This course qualifies as 15 hrs CPD with Yoga Alliance US and Yoga Alliance Professionals.
A certificate will be presented upon completion of the weekend.
