Adjustments and Corrections Training: Gain skills and build confidence
Byron Yoga Centre’s 4 day Adjustments and Corrections Training led by senior teachers is for yoga teachers and trainees wishing to advance their skills and build confidence in adjusting and correcting students. The program is a combination of theory sessions and practical workshops to build your knowledge of anatomy and methodology with the focus on increasing your hands-on skills.
This 25 hour training will provide you with the opportunity to learn how to give safe adjustments and accurate corrections to students of all levels. You will be guided to work within a methodology focusing on the main foundation poses in standing and seated asana. Students will be able to successfully apply these skills to other poses and variations using the same techniques.
You will learn how to improve your ability to work within a class to lead a sequence while observing misalignments, offering corrections to individual students, working to support beginners and those with injuries, limitations or special needs. You will also learn a safe process to enable you to adjust students, allowing them to move deeper into postures such as twists and forward bends. These skills increase your teaching tools and enhance your student’s experience.
This Modular Training is ideal for Level 2 trainees or those planning to participate in our Level 2 course. Trainees can use the 25 hours from this training toward the 300 hour certificate. The course is also offered to our Level 1 trainees to be used toward Part C hours. Any graduate will increase their teaching proficiency (and professional development hours) by gaining a deeper understanding of how to offer safe adjustments and corrections.
