Hands-On Teaching Asana

What to expect:

  • Align & adjust techniques to teach asana safely and correctly.

  • Posture modifications to make your classes inclusive.

  • Voice facilitation and exploration into language.

  • To instill practices and develop confidence, there will be practical and written exercises throughout the course.
