Kunga Yoga Hands on Assisting Teacher Training with Jess Bichler, ERYT500

Safely support your students in deepening their understanding of alignment

You will also learn:

  • how to approach assisting as an art
  • safety issues and guidelines
  • dynamics of the student-teacher relationship
  • how to step out of your “comfort zone” and into the student’s practice space
  • the “core 4” secrets of confident assisting
  • specific tricks for assisting quickly and efficiently within flow based practices
  • thai yoga massage as applied to assisting theory and techniques

The Kunga Yoga Hands-On Assists teacher training will provide you with concrete skills for effective, safe and intelligent hands-on assisting for your students.  The Kunga Yoga approach to assisting safely supports the student in deepening their understanding of alignment within the postures; rather than using assists to “correct” or seek perfection.

This workshop is open to students and teachers of all levels. Teachers will receive specific tools for offering safe, and powerful assists with confidence and ease. Students and teachers-to-be will learn advanced alignment and gain a deeper understanding of the practice through touch. All participants will give and receive assists through partnering and with the program leaders. All participants will receive a manual including a photo glossary of over 50+ assists and thai yoga massage techniques.
