In each session, we will discuss a different pose type (inversions, backbends, etc.), and the practical application of how to bring better alignment to our students through adjustments. From the opening meditation to the final resting moment, we will explore myriad ways to be present with our students with mindful touch. We will look at anatomical concepts as they relate to honing our touch skills. Whether you are a new or seasoned teacher, there will be something for everyone.

This clinic is limited to 20 students.

Weekend clinic will include:

Lectures on touch skills, bone, energy, and anatomical concepts
Proper body mechanics when adjusting
Using props to simplify adjustments
Permission to adjust or not to adjust
Learning to adjust with intention
Understanding that all bodies react differently to adjustments and not just physically
Demonstrations of each pose and appropriate adjustments
How adjustments create new muscle memory
How good adjustments can stimulate the body’s natural healing processes
