To support, guide & communicate through touch is truly a beautiful gift that we as teachers can give to our students. Assisting comes from our own intuitive intelligence, clear intentions & knowledge of the body. This workshop is open to all teachers who would like to learn the art of hands on assists. To feel empowered & confident with touch comes from learning, practice & an inquisitive heart. There is NOT a one size fits all, this is yoga. It is a practice of mind, body & spirit. In the first modules of this series, we will  explore all the facets of a safe & intelligent way to assist. With over 10 years of teaching one to one private classes & group classes, Melissa has developed an approach that stems from an integrated practice of ashtanga vinyasa, modern day yoga, yin yoga & thai yoga massage. Her insignia, “Yoga is a moving meditation. The breath is a bridge between the body & spirit – a gateway to the present moment”.
