Hands-On Assisting & Teaching Mysore
with Linda Munro & Gérald Disse
November 20 – 24, 2023
in Golfe Juan, Côte d’Azur
For teachers and experienced practitioners
27.5-hour intensive training
Developing the eye and the intuition to determine how to assess whether to give a verbal or hands on assist to your yoga student is a life-long work in progress. In this week, we will work on our observation skills and learn how to give appropriate assistance that is adapted to the individual to have the best effects possible.
We will look at key movements from the Ashtanga series that give us skills that can be transferred to a wide range of poses. Exploring different benefits of using our hands to help students in yoga asana, as well as, deeming when it may preferable to use props or verbal cues.
Monday 20 – Friday 24 Nov. 2023
9:30 – 16:00
The morning will be dedicated to practice with either a Self-Adjusting Guided class, Mysore or Practicum Testing.
Mysore Self-Practice is where you will be on the receiving end of hands-on adjustments so that you can feel as many adjustments as possible for yourself. This is an imperative part of learning to give adjustments! You must feel what it is like on the receiving end over and over to really understand the subtle effects and to respect that the person you are touching is another human being that deserves to have a voice and be respected.
In the afternoon, we’ll have some group discussions and then delve into analyzing the way to approach different types of yoga poses. This will entail a lot of partner work – observing, deciding how to help the partner, practicing and receiving immediate feedback.
