Yoga Student-Teacher Relationship with Judith Hanson Lasater

One of the most important of these skills is how we choose to speak to our students. How can we use our words in a way that they are instructive and yet respectful and supportive? How can we use our words to create an environment in our classes that is safe, interesting, and helpful?

Workshop Description

Teaching yoga requires a myriad of skills.

One of the most important of these skills is how we choose to speak to our students. How can we use our words in a way that they are instructive and yet respectful and supportive? How can we use our words to create an environment in our classes that is safe, interesting, and helpful?

Another skill we need as teachers is to understand the power and usefulness of our touch. Touch can reassure, comfort, teach, and increase the power of the poses. But to touch is an intimate act, and as teachers we need to be aware of when and how to touch, and when touch is not indicated.

Join me for a two two-hour online course where we will discuss the important topics of language and touch and end with a practice of Savasana.
