  • This weekend workshop of hands-on assists involves learning the therapeutic and ethical approach to using touch to work effectively and safely with yoga students.

  • Forrest Yoga prides itself on therapeutic hands-on assists that are based on the foundations of deepening the therapeutic experience of yoga poses as well as enabling a student to work out their own needs. Hands-on assists are used to enable a student to deepen their connection with class intents in order to embody teachings with ease.

  • Each afternoon will also include a short lesson to satisfy the enquiries and injuries of the group that correspond to the theme of each day.

  • The hands-on assists sections are divided into two so that the more advanced poses can be done during the yoga practice. Afternoon sessions focus on assists for foundational and intermediate poses, therapeutics and trouble shooting injuries typically seen in the yoga room.

  • Open to yoga teachers from all lineages and all levels of experience
