Teaching Skills 2: Adjustments & Demonstrations


September 27 – 29, 2019

Fri 5-8PM • Sat 9-4:30PM • Sun 9-4:30PM

Location: Journey Yoga, Calgary AB


You have probably received adjustments from yoga teachers before that invite your body to open in ways you never knew was possible, as well as others that make you want to cringe. Learn what makes the difference to your students!
Adjustments and demonstrations are an effective way to enhance students’ awareness of their abilities and improve the flow of energy within their poses. When done well, these offerings can be transformational and leave your students feeling empowered. The physical and energetic intelligence of a pose can be transferred to the student through skillful demonstration, verbal direction and the power of touch.

Key Concepts

• Engage your students in their practice through sight (demonstrations), sound (verbal adjustments) and touch (hands-on guidance)
• Refine your observation skills to see where you might offer a demonstration or adjustment
• Explore and practice verbal adjustments, physical adjustments and supportive touch in a wide variety of yoga postures
• Keep yourself safe as you adjust your students
• Adjust from a place of kindness and compassion and safely guide students with confidence and professionalism
• Adjust efficiently: know your intention, the appropriate adjustment, communicate the adjustment and check in with your student
• Adjust using techniques that can easily be translated into many different poses
• Perform effective and concise demonstrations that are educational and inspiring
