Assist Your Yoga Students at Every Level and Improve Your Understanding of the Body
Kamini Desai, Ph.D. clearly guides and demonstrates safe adjustment techniques for yoga students, designed to bring them into their individual safe and optimal alignment. Based on the Integrative Amrit Method of Yoga (I AM YOGA), this DVD is designed to prepare you to help your students reap the most benefit from their yoga practice.
Because we develop blocks in the body resulting from injuries, poor posture, and emotional stress, a yoga pose can be a powerful way to deliberately encounter these limitations that have been built into the body.
Each time we stay in the pose using proper alignment, we must move into areas of tightness and weakness we usually compensate around. A well-delivered assist can help your students move into all manner of limitations—unbinding blocks, re-establishing proper posture, resolving pain and tension, and maximizing the flow of vital life energy.
