The art of hands-on assists gives us the opportunity to support ourselves and others in a way that fosters trust and healing. This retreat is for yoga teachers, aspiring teachers, and students who are interested in learning and practicing effective hands-on assists for yoga poses. With our guidance, you will feel for quality attention, connection, and support within yourself and then transmit that through your hands. The schedule provides ample time and space for you to learn each hands on technique that is taught. Our priority is to help you connect with your hands in a high quality way, not push and rush through an overwhelming “checklist” of poses. You’ll learn specific hands on techniques for various body types, injuries, and needs. Taught by Ann Hyde and Cat Allen.
