Intentional Assist Workshop

Umm Suqeim | Saturday, March 14th | 1:00pm-4:30pm

AED 350 with Melissa Ghattas
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”.

Vinyasa means to move with breath but how many of us are correctly using the transitions to build heat & re-align the spine? Learning the techniques of how to ‘jump through’ and ‘jump back’ is crucial to building more strength & stability in our asana practice later helping us to build the core strength needed for more advanced postures like handstand. Create both stability & ease in your practice using the bandhas, breath & movement together to create both stability & ease in your practice. Students will explore exercises & drills to build the strength needed for inversions, arm balances & common transitions. Laura completed her first teacher training at a Sivananda ashram in 2008 & in June 2011 she completed her second training with Ajay Kumar.
