This is our first-ever live podcast recording! From Jason’s training in San Francisco at Love Story Yoga, we dig deep into how yoga teachers can serve their students better through offering hands-on, or manual, yoga adjustments.
We offer yoga adjustment tips and talk about:
- The value of hands-on adjustments in yoga postures for students, and which students might benefit most.
- Why Jason feels there should be a paradigm shift in the way teachers deliver manual adjustments and what that shift should be.
- Ways to approach adjusting super flexible students, tighter students, and those middle-of-the-road students + why it’s important to give them all equal attention in class.
- Practical advice teachers can implement right now to offer safer, more skillful adjustments that informs their experience of the posture.
