Hands On or Off? The Art of Yoga Adjustments

  • Yogaville - Satchidananda Ashram 108 Yogaville Way Buckingham, VA, 23921 United States (map)

Yoga adjustments can be beneficial in a number of ways, having the potential to take students to a level of deeper awareness and more self-refined practice. Yoga students and teachers appreciate the power and art of adjustments. But an essential consideration before providing hands-on assistance is to make clear why one might need it and then decide how to approach it: verbal instruction, physical adjustments, or other teachings.

In this workshop we will discuss the purpose and the hows of Yoga adjustments, learn how to make adjustments effective and safe, and develop postural observation skills. We will study principles that give us more confidence to make decisions and to better help students.

We will explore:

  • What makes a good adjustment
  • Adjustment techniques
  • Anatomy behind the practice

This is a helpful program for all Yoga teachers, teacher trainers, and dedicated Yoga students.


The program was beautifully presented with a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, and sincerity that can only come from a deep personal practice and service from the presenter, Padmasari. — Hridayan Stern
