Art of Hands-on Assisting (70 CEUs)

Art of Hands-on Assisting (70 CEUs)

Our Art of Hands on Assist Teacher Training is part of the 300 HRS Advanced Teacher Training course with Prema Vinyasa Yoga.

Ameriga, the lead teacher of this course, is a functional anatomy expert with almost 10 years of hands-on-assist experience. She has learned the art and techniques by personally assisting Gregor Maehle and Monica Gauci, and also studying with several other renowned Ashtanga Vinyasa teachers and, for Vinyasa flow, under the guidance of Shiva Rea.

This course is suited for Yoga teachers who want to understand how to offer safe and effective assists to their students, understanding their anatomy and skeletal variations.
The course includes around 10 hrs of anatomy classes that can be taken online prior to coming over to the residential event.
If you have trained fully online for your 200 hrs, in this course you will learn practical skills for in-person teaching.

 

This module covers:

    • Ethics of hands-on adjustments.
    • Intentions and Functions of hands-on assisting.
    • Stages to offer assists that are safe and effective.
    • Skeletal variations and how they apply to families of asanas and yoga poses.
    • Understanding the difference between compression and tension and applying it when “correcting” students.
    • Asana Labs: in-depth study of postures, that address their functions, and hence ways to modify, offer hands-on adjustments, prop use and kramas by level.
    • Learn to assist over 40 postures from simpler to complex ones. This course covers most Primary Series adjustments and many second and third series assists, as well as vinyasa flow poses.
    • Daily Vinyasa class.
    • Part of the theory will be covered online prior to the course

Location

The location of this module will be at The “Laguna dello Stagnone” a protected natural area located in the municipality of Marsala, in the province of Trapani.

The lagoon, the largest in Sicily, characterized by shallow waters (1–2 m and often no more than 50 cm). Following the movements of the sand of the lagoon due to the underwater currents, the Isola Grande was formed, around two original islets. The birth of the island closed a part of the sea that was originally open and here, since there are no currents necessary for the exchange, the water has become stagnant, with a temperature above normal.

The Stagnone is a well-known spot at European level for the practice of kitesurfing and other water sports such as windsurfing and SUP.  In fact, there are many schools that welcome thousands of tourists from all over the world every year so you’ll also have the opportunity to practice one of these water sport!
