ASANA ASSIST LAB - Standing & Balancing Asanas
withKateSzekely at Hoboken Midtown
Sat, Feb 23, 2019 at 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
It's always an assist, never a correction or adjustment!
Hands-on assists can be an intimate, illuminating way to deepen your own practice, as well as that of another. Yoga is a practice of making connections. Through hands-on assists, we can see how proper alignment opens up the physical and energetic body; thus, a properly given assist can facilitate an experience of depth and expansion for each individual.
This workshop is a three part series, allowing certified teachers and students alike to practice their assist-giving techniques on themselves and one another in an open, practicum setting. Participants can choose to do all three parts, or can just drop in for one or two.
Please wear comfortable, but body-hugging clothing that covers the abdomen.
Part 1: Standing and balancing asanas Part 2: Forward folds and Hip Openers Part 3: Backbends and Inversions
