STUDIO | Adjustments: An introduction and refresher for yoga teachers
As a yoga teacher; giving safe, beneficial adjustments to your yogis can be completely daunting... but you also know how wonderful it ban be to receive a skilled, mindful, beneficial adjustment! So you're torn, do you go for it, or not?!

Well that is exactly what this workshop is designed to help with.

We'll cover:

  • Why offer adjustments?
  • Different types of adjustments, and the relevant contexts
  • Getting consent
  • How to approach your students when offering adjustments
  • Safely starting, administering and ending the adjustment
  • How students communicate with you
  • How to protect your own body

This is an introduction and refresher, so the asanas that we'll focus on are asanas that you're likely to be teaching regularly, so that the knowledge you gain can be immediately useful to your teaching. You'll be guided through each adjustment, with key safety points to be aware of, before being able to practice these adjustments on others, plus receiving them yourself, with guidance and feedback from Holly, and from your fellow yogis.

Asanas covered:

  • Balasana - Child's pose
  • Tadasana - Mountain pose
  • Adho Mukha Svanasana - Downward Facing Dog pose
  • Virabhadrasana 1 and 2 - Warriors 1 and 2
  • Utthita and Parivritta Parsvakonasana - Extended and Revolved Side Angle pose
  • Utthita and Parivritta Trikonasana - Extended and Revolved Triangle pose
  • Ardha Chandrasana - Half moon pose
  • Baddha Konasana - Bound angle pose
  • Paschimottanasana - Intense stretch to the west
  • Upavista Konasana - Seated wide angle forward fold
  • Savasana - Corpse pose

We can also take requests, so if there's any asanas that you regularly teach, let us know, and we can look at adding these to the list.

Finally, we'll also cover how to teach in a studio, to keep yourself safe, energised, inspired and mindful, whilst also providing the best possible experience for your yoga students!

No previous adjustment experience is necessary to join this immersive workshop.

Expect to complete the weekend feeling confident, ready, and inspired to offer safe, beneficial to your yogis.

Come join us!

About Holly

” I absolutely love yoga; how it’s so accessible and beneficial to everyone from all walks of life. I became a yoga instructor in the hope of inspiring others to practice yoga; to enjoy its many benefits for the body and mind. My style very much focuses on the importance of the breath and on practising good alignment, as I see both as really important factors for a beneficial and enjoyable practice. Lively music forms a large part of my classes; I find it can be motivating as well as bringing some lightness to the classes.

I am qualified to teach Ashtanga, Rocket, Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga, having studied Ashtanga in our fab home city of Leeds, and Rocket Yoga on the beautiful island of Koh Samui in Thailand, and Vinyasa Flow in Goa, India.

Ultimately, I aim to encourage students to enjoy a decent body workout, whilst improving flexibility and of course, relaxing the mind with a rewarding savasana (relaxation) at the end of each class.”
