The Art of Adjusting Certificate

with Dominique Santana Salerno - AYA Principal

Students love adjustments. You know how amazing it feels to be guided on the mat by the reassuring hands of a competent teacher. A good hands on adjustment can completely change a students experience and understanding of an asana.

Unfortunately, adjusting is becoming a lost art. An art that can only be communicated and conveyed by experienced hands and lots of practice under the watchful gaze of a senior teacher.

This practical certificate course is ideal for yoga teachers and teachers in training, and will equip you with the confidence to utilise safe hands-on adjustments in common yogasanas.

Come and immerse yourself in this 12 hour exploration of the subtle art of adjusting and deepen your understanding of yoga teaching.

Build your confidence as a teacher through practical hands-on exercises and techniques and the opportunity to navigate common postural misalignments encountered in yoga shalas everyday.

This course will cover:

  • principles and benefits of hands-on adjusting
  • how to use hands-on adjustments in a safe and effective manner
  • principles of alignment for major groups of asanas
  • dealing with typical misalignments of common poses

You will learn to observe the pose skillfully and how to decide what needs to be adjusted – and how – and have the opportunity to practice and assist your fellow students in commonly encountered yoga poses.
