Touch of Adjustments 2022
Are you a yoga teacher and would you like to learn how to use touch, deep stretching in your yoga classes? This is a 2 day adjustment lab for Yin Yoga. Grab your chance to completely immerse in the art of adjusting with Anoshe!
There has been some moments in my life as a yoga practitioner when the physical experience has taken me by great surprise. Some moments, for example, occurred in my own teacher training when one of my teachers, would adjust me, and as I trusted her and I surrendered to her touching and pressing I would end up so much deeper in a pose than I ever thought was possible. My teacher’s class would begin with the explanation of which poses we would go through during the vinyasa sequence and I would think “aha no way I’m going to end up in that pose but lets enjoy at least the beginning of the class”. But with the combination of her skill and my trust, she brought me always to a space of no control and then she would lead me somewhere beyond my limits. And I was astonished by how my body ended up in the pose with such ease and without no sensation of pain.
Another time I remember with another teacher, she taught us arm balances, giving such clear adjustments that it is still so clearly deep in my body memory.
For myself as a yoga practitioner the teachers who have given me great adjustments have embedded something in my body system, like switching on a light bulb! The combination of trust in your teacher and the skill and insight and love of that teacher are ripe conditions for those precious yogic moments of embodying change on the physical plane.
On our Touch of Adjustment training coming up shortly, I want to share these precious skills with you, so that you have the ability and understanding so that you may give such experiences to your students.
David Life said something profound about yoga adjusting: “The essence of Yoga assists is to exchange from Self to other …”
That’s exactly what adjusting and indeed yoga teaching should be, to be so connected with the Self, with Emptiness or Oneness that we not only physically touch but we touch from Oneness.
