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 transform a student’s experience and understanding of an asana.

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

This practical certificate course is ideal for both established teachers and teachers in training, and will equip you with the confidence to utilise safe hands on adjustments in all classifications of yogasana, as well as important alignment and cueing for posture and breath in pranayama and meditation.

Come and immerse yourself in this exploration of the subtle art of adjusting, sharpen your teaching skills and deepen your understanding of your craft.

Go back into your personal practice and teaching equipped with a variety of tools to enable you to help anyone. This course will cover:

  • Principles and benefits of hands on adjusting.
  • How to use hands on adjustments safely and effectively.
  • How to prop effectively for students of differing abilities.
  • Verbal cueing for optimal alignment.
  • How to deal with typical misalignments in commonly practiced poses.

Now spread over 2 workshops, this workshop will allow for greater opportunity for thorough exploration of a variety of adjustments, on different bodies, with differing needs.

Attend both weekends at a discounted rate or attend them individually. The choice is yours.

Australian Yoga Academy’s Certificate Courses have been developed for already qualified yoga teachers and serious yoga practitioners who are seeking to deepen both their personal practice and professional skills.

Continual professional development and training is essential for yoga teachers and these programs will not only enable you to better serve your current students, but more importantly will inspire your personal practice.
