The Art of Adjusting English

The Art of Adjusting

In this workshop the intention is to explore adjusting yoga poses as an art, a creative process, so it will be very practical and experiential in form.  Adjustments to yoga poses come in a variety of forms, including physical, with props, verbal and energetic.

There are now many books on adjusting that show the "classic" and standard adjustments in general yoga poses, however not every adjustment is necessarily appropriate for every student and we shall aim to explore this.  Safe and intelligent adjustments should always begin with a good experience of actually doing the pose, from the inside out.  Without an awareness of the action of the pose, then the usefulness of the adjustment is not appreciated, nor embodied and therefore not so easily communicated by the adjuster to the student. 
We shall look at the basics of reading bodies, for example assessing where does the student need length, stability or space in their body or breath, and then applying what we see and feel.  While also understanding that less is often more when it comes to safe hands-on adjustments.

It is not necessary to have been to the previous workshop last year. In the first day we shall go through general principles of hands-on adjusting (a re-cap if you came last year) and cover some of the "classic" adjustments for some of the common poses to gain confidence and understanding.


The second day will build on the first and we shall have the opportunity to look at any specific poses that you would like to explore, so bring any questions you might have

The group will be kept intentionally small  (max 14 students) so that we shall have a safe space to explore a range of appropriate adjustments with lots of practice on different bodies, to build confidence in using our hands (or other parts of our body if appropriate) and props to support the individual student, while experimenting on each other.  There will be no manual, as no one prescription fits all, but there will be plenty of time for feedback, note-taking and an exploration of the process.
