As yoga practitioners and teachers, our life is spent with a lens on relationship. Relationship to our-self, relationship to others, relationship to the earth; these are fruitful grounds of observation. While these aspects of the yoga practice may seem obvious, these are the very aspects that tend to get confused or altogether lost in the hustle and bustle of teaching at different locations at different times to different people, especially in a large city. Too often the emphasis on the mat is on the ‘what’ instead of the ‘how’; it is up to the teachers to rectify this misunderstanding.

This two day course will strip away at the many layers of complexity of teaching yoga, and address the foundation of relationship, particularly as it pertains to creating healthy boundaries with students assisting in yoga asana. We will explore the building blocks of holding a space, how to body ‘read’, defining levels of touch, and how to use the voice in conjunction with touch to convey meaning. Special time will be given to understanding the role of fascia in releasing strain patterns that become evident through the asana practice and working with a fascial structure to balance physical and emotional form. This course aims to increase confidence as your understanding of communicating through language and touch is refined through iteration and practice over our two days together.

What you can expect:
• An understanding of the role of fascia in movement potential and limitation
• An embodied understanding of levels of touch
• Practice in ‘body reading’ and how it relates to asana
• Hands-on practice in creating and holding safe boundaries of therapeutic relationship
• A deepening of anatomical knowledge and how it relates to body movement
• Clarity on how to assist students into, and out of asana to deepen their understanding of the yoga practice
• Practical ideas about how to use language and energetics rather than hands to assist students
• How to protect yourself as a teacher when serving others
• An in depth toolkit for how to assist students in key asanas such as standings, seated, twists, front extension and inversions
• A mixture of lecture, embodied asana practice and partner work, as well as an iterative process of questions and answers

About Lizzie: An advanced certified Jivamukti teacher, Rolfer, Rolf Movement practitioner and craniosacral therapist, it was a liver transplant in 2013 that gave her special insight to the fascial body and its relationship to organs, muscles and bones. Lizzie’s passion for yoga, movement and touch comes from a place of both theoretical knowledge and self examination; her intention is to create a safe space for teachers to embody and deepen their own understanding of yoga asana, energetic of touch and the fascial body so that they may better interact and encourage positive change within their students.
