Yoga assistant training to take place at Revolution Power Yoga in Eagle-Vail
Ryan Summerlin March 5, 2013
On Saturday afternoons beginning this week and continuing through March 30, certified yoga teacher Rachel Nelson of Revolution Power Yoga will teach a new series on how to safely and effectively make physical pose adjustments.
Even the slightest assist during a yoga pose can be enough to bring you to that “a-ha” moment. This month, Revolution Power Yoga is offering a training series to help you get even more physical with your yoga.
“This hands-on training will spark a true understanding of poses,” said Rachel Nelson, certified yoga teacher and co-owner of Revolution Power Yoga. “The classes will offer tools to help you transform your teaching, your assisting and your practice.”
Nelson, who will be leading the series, said each class will offer concrete skills for safe and effective hands-on assisting. She said the classes are open to teachers and students of all levels.
“As a teacher, you will gain confidence and tools in delivering assists that are direct, clear and powerful,” Nelson said. “If you do not teach, you will gain a new perspective of your personal practice and a deeper understanding of yoga.”
March 9: Foundation of assisting: Attention, touch and key adjustments for every pose.
March 16: Deepen the student’s experience: How to read bodies, and assists in standing poses and twists.
