Hands On Assisting Certification
300/500 Hour Module, Open-To-All: Best known as the Certified Teachers’ Assistant Training, this course is one of our most popular. Purposeful assisting rapidly accelerates understanding in yoga practice. Yet conventional assisting courses rely on primarily “corrective” adjustments (from the outside in), instead of harnessing the natural intuition of the student in the pose.
In this training, learn to co-create with students to maximize independent learning, increased coordination & muscle memory, while simultaneously promoting deep, relaxation in action (from the inside out). Hardwire new confidence & knowledge through use of action & resistance, stability & grounding, and intensity & duration.
While traditional assists will be covered as foundation, this interactive weekend certification will unveil entirely new perspectives on yoga anatomy, physiology and non-verbal communication drawn from Debbie’s 30 years of working with bodies in motion.
This is a 300/500 Hour Module (Wild Abundant Life), however you do not have to be a yoga teacher to attend, so it is also classified as OPEN-TO-ALL. Non-teachers who are curious about assisting are encouraged to attend.
All major vinyasa poses & sequences will be covered, including but not limited to:
• integration / warm ups
• sun salutations
• standing poses & twists
• balancing sequences
• backbends & abs
• inversions & hips
• forward folds & twists
Course includes instruction on working with special populations (different body types, elderly, athletes, etc).
Who Can Attend & How Do I Apply?
Every one of our 300/500 hour modules exists as a stand-alone program and can be attended by anyone with interest, as well as by yoga teachers pursuing advanced 300/500 credentials. We’d rather have you come for pure curiosity & love of learning than for the certification.
