Props + Hands-On Adjustments

BLOOMFIELD STUDIO
Sat + Sun, July 30 + 31
12:30-5:30 pm

Asana means to take a seat. Our yoga asana practice is meant to prepare us for a more comfortable body in seated meditation. When we start to explore asana we start to open the doorway to our patterns, old injuries, asymmetries physically and mentally. We are invited to cultivate discernment over self judgement. The use of props brings us so much into the present moment, we can’t help but be present as a result.

Props can be used to make yoga postures more accessible, reveal patterns in our body, and they can make poses more challenging and fun! They ask us to go deeper and be more subtle. To refine our personal practice as our offerings as teachers. When we refine our light it burns brighter.

In these sessions, you will explore using all the props in various ways to facilitate restoration, therapeutics, corrective to deep alignment.

As a yoga teacher one of the biggest gifts we can give to our students is meeting them where they are as well as mirroring back to them their innate potential. We learn from our students as much as they learn from us. We’re all walking each other home – Ram Dass

Whether you are a yoga teacher, a teacher in training or a practitioner you will learn pivotal tools and uncover new awarenesses. You will be heard and supported in these sessions.

  • The Wall – 2 hours
  • The Strap – 2 hours
  • The Block – 2 hours
  • The Chair – 2 hours
  • The Blanket – 2 hours

We have been moving through a great transformation as a yoga culture in the U.S when it comes to hands-on adjustments. What a pivotal time to have conversation around what it means to give and receive adjustments in a yoga class. In these hands-on adjustment sessions we will explore adjustments for safety, deepening the posture, and guiding energy.
