Assistant Training Program
Yoga Teacher Assistant Training Program
Have you ever thought about taking the leap into becoming a Yoga Teacher Assistant?
“Creating connection and community through touch”
Yoga Body Shop believes that Assisting is an Art—it is about creating presence, possibility, connection and action in others. It is about guidance and insight and allowing the right pose to emerge for everybody. Join us for YBS Assist & Align 1 & 2 Intensives where you will learn proper alignment, key aspects of assisting and how to assist using touch.
Completion of Yoga Body Shop’s Assist & Align 1 & 2 Intensives is required for anyone interested in becoming a yoga classroom assistant. Yoga Alliance credits are available upon completion. Upon completion of the intensives, mentoring with YBS Yoga Instructors is the next step towards assisting YBS classes.
In this very interactive hands-on workshop, we will explore different approaches for assisting and how to physically and energetically work with others. Come prepared to work on your mat and with the other participants. We will review alignment and how to correct asana without taking away from a student’s self-exploration of the pose. The intensive will also build a community of peers that will support your growth and learning.
This program is designed for students and teachers of all levels of experience.
The YBS Intensive is suitable for:
