IYNAUS Teachers’ Forum: Hands-on Adjustments and Consent Sunday, October 31, 2021 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm Eastern Time.

As yoga studios reopen, this is an opportune time to explore the importance of adjustment – both as a teaching tool and a hallmark of the Iyengar Yoga classroom experience.

     Teacher-student relationships: power dynamics and boundaries

     Affirmative informed consent for hands-on adjustments

     Consent and the classroom: Teacher intention, student empowerment, and trust

     Effective hands-on adjustments

     Special considerations for hands-on adjustments during the COVID-19 pandemic

This free session is open to certified Iyengar Yoga teachers and Iyengar Yoga teachers-in-training. Teachers-in-training must submit a letter of recommendation from their mentor. Please submit letters here no later than, October 24, 2021.
