11/5 & 11/6 Proprioception and Use of Ethical Touch

November 5, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - November 6, 2022 @ 6:30 pm


Course Overview

The intention of this weekend intensive is to provide additional tools yoga teachers and yoga therapist trainees can use to assess and support their clients. We will discuss ethics and consent, hand placement and quality of touch, longevity and safety for the Yoga Therapist as related to transference and body mechanics, and how clear verbal and visual cues can provide a similar result without using touch when it may be contraindicated. Touch can help improve musculoskeletal imbalances, breath awareness, proprioception and provide security and connection, and our sense of touch provides us with essential information for enhancing kinesthetic learning.
