3-day Yoga Adjustments Training: Attitude, Alignment, Action with Jonas Westring
14-16 August 2020 Peninsula Office Tower – Tsim Sha Tsui
Yoga hands-on adjustments are an important part of many styles of modern yoga. When performed with adequate knowledge, skilfulness and sensitivity, adjustments can greatly enhance the student's experience of their physical and energetic bodies and leave an imprint that effectively points them towards a full experience of themselves. On the contrary, poorly performed adjustments can create injury and leave a negative traumatic imprint. Unfortunately, this has become all too common in modern yoga settings around the world.
The main inspiration for the method used here comes from the 3 A’s of Anusara Yoga: Attitude, Alignment & Action. Also drawing information from Universal Alignment Principles, Physiotherapy and Therapeutic Bodywork - we will investigate the body through the lens of anatomical structure, function and movement from where safe and effective hands-on adjustments arise.
Each systematic session includes a shorter asana warm-up session where the specific poses that will be adjusted later are first experienced through personal practice. Then comes adjustment demonstrations with clear details of each asana adjustment, followed by partner-exchange.
Your guidance in this course comes from a mature and highly experienced teacher who bases his teachings on close to 40 years of personal mind-body practice and 25 years of teaching.
Participants should not expect to be healed from personal problems, injuries and other issues during this course - but will benefit in numerous ways, be empowered and equipped with overall improved body knowledge and a large toolbox of effective therapeutic hands-on techniques in all categories of yoga postures.
The end result of this course is a more confident and skilful approach to hands-on adjustments that are sensitive, safe, therapeutic, injury-free and contribute to enhancing the overall benefits of yoga practice.
