Hands On Assist Training For Yoga Teachers & Aspiring Teachers with Caroline Pineau & Checka Antifonario

  • The Yoga Tree 90 Washington Street Haverhill, MA, 01832 United States (map)

Connection. Support. Safety. Presence. Growth. A skilled and mindful hands-on assist can provide all of this and more within the yoga practice. Caroline and Checka are excited to share their experience in offering anatomically and energetically sound assists - an integral part of teaching for both of them! They will draw from their combined 16 years of teaching experience to offer practical guidance to help you enrich and deepen your teaching through simple but potent assisting techniques. The training will also address assisting in both Vinyasa or Hatha-style classes as well as slower-paced settings such as Yin and Restorative. This four-hour session will include:

-a brief practice to prepare you to give and receive assists
-demonstrations of a carefully curated selection of effective and accessible yoga assists
-partner practice and feedback ~ this is one of the very best and quickest ways to get comfortable with assisting! 

Teachers and aspiring teachers of all levels of experience are welcome (including those currently in training or accepted into an upcoming 200-hour teacher training). For those new to teaching and/or assisting, this is a great opportunity to increase your comfort level in a warm and welcoming environment. Experienced teachers, please join in to absorb some new ideas, grow your skill set, and connect with your teaching community. 

Hope to see you there!
