Today after practice we had our monthly assistants workshop at the school and welcomed Daria, Thian and Peter into the assisting team, starting with the basics of practice: helping a student to access the sound breath and explaining its benefits, helping a student to access their lungs (and breath) more fully, the principles of samasthitih and how those principles come back in all asanas, and teaching a beginner sun salutation A - a full program for their first workshop! Lovely to have you three supporting the school, you will see them in Mysore class with me once a week observing and starting to assist.
Here Thian is helping Daria to access her lungs more fully, and thus breathe more fully.
Then when Elena and Klazina joined we discussed observations during class, how to teach bhujapidasana, kurmasana, headstand and headstand preparations and what to watch out for, while also reviewing adjustments on different poses. Always love coming together with you all and sharing ♥️ while also building more and more depth and ground at our school with a stronger assitant team!
