    Mindful adjustments


Body reading and mindful adjustments

Sunday 21 November with Tish Dodson 11:30am – 5:30pm

Earlsfield – at Grove Pilates

As we come out of the Covid pandemic body reading and mindful adjustments can be the difference between someone staying with an online practice or coming to your class. If you are new as a yoga teacher it can sometimes feel like a push to get your own classes. You may get on cover lists, but for those clients to recommend you or ask where you are teaching they need to leave knowing they have been guided, adjusted where appropriate, and their physical and mental needs have been taken into consideration in your teaching. This takes practice. However there are some tips and techniques to being the teacher you set out to be and being an excellent teacher. Where your mind isn’t in a spin about the sequence you are going to teach or keeping to a plan, but mindfully in the room with your clients.


“Power is in the detail or the baby moves (whatever language appeals) and I loved the term ‘movement medicine’ that you used. Such a simple class that packed a punch”  Amanda after a session with Tish
