Advanced Yoga Teacher Training: Hands on Assists

Advanced Yoga Teacher Training: Hands on Assists

90 Monkeys/Pro Peloton (map)

Advanced teacher training can be cumbersome. We want to engage you with useable, meaningful, actionable education now. This week is one of many modular trainings in the 90 Monkeys Advanced Teacher Training Curriculum. Join Amy for 4 intimate days in Boulder, CO at our cozy 90 Monkeys Studio!

February 9-12th, 2017

A skillful hands-on adjustment in a yoga class can be transformational and life changing for your students. At the same time, an inadequate adjustment is more detrimental than no adjustment at all. Learn how to give masterful hands-on assists that are both educational and empowering for your students and discover the art of service and attention through refining and practicing your therapeutic touch under Amy’s watchful eye.

This intensive is designed to provide you with advanced skills in a wide variety of manual assists in order to add depth and sophistication to your teachings. Hands-on adjustments in the context of group settings, private sessions, or in large public settings will be discussed. Come explore adjustments for a full spectrum of poses in a delicious exchange of loving hands that will radically expand your teaching repertoire.

You will learn:

  • What the different types of touch are and when to use them.
  • The difference between therapeutic, opening, stabilizing and positioning assists.
  • Methods for centering yourself before teaching to help enhance the energy behind your touch.
  • To unlock the mysteries of your own body and that of your students through a review of clear alignment understanding.
  • Hold your own body safely during hands on adjustments to prevent common assisting injuries
  • How to connect with a student before giving an adjustment to build trust.
  • How to give verbal adjustments before touching a student, to help empower their understanding.
  • Methods for touching a student so that they actually move with you and improve their pose!
  • Observation techniques to help you know when and who to adjust first in a class.
  • How to adjust with the breath as your ally.
  • When to use props as part of an adjustment.
  • To be crystal clear in your adjustments.
  • Alignment concepts that will help you know “how to adjust” not just “which standard adjustment to give”.
  • As with all modules in the 90 Monkeys Advanced TT Curriculum, this topic will be explored through a career and business lens.

In addition:
Meet and make fabulous friends!
Enjoy the mountain views, fantastic restaurants, and great people in Boulder, CO!

Perks:

  • Prepare in advance! Registered students will receive our Pre-Event Video that Amy has put together to help you prepare to get the most out of this training!

Yoga in the Age of Botox: How to Teach Students with Body Image Challenges

Yoga in the Age of Botox: How to Teach Students with Body Image Challenges

Advanced teacher training can be cumbersome. We want to engage you with useable, meaningful, actionable education now. This week is one of many modular trainings in the 90 Monkeys Advanced Teacher Training Curriculum available in Boulder, CO and across the globe. For this important module, join Amy and Chelsea Roff in Boulder, CO at our cozy 90 Monkeys Studio!


This dynamic and intimate 12-hour training will give you the tools to stand out as a teacher who can effectively address body image challenges and eating disorders with empathy, skill, and cutting-edge knowledge.

Body image insecurities are rampant in today’s yoga culture. Detoxes, hot sweaty classes, and cosmetic fixes are becoming an industry norm. While yoga can be a powerful tool for building body confidence and self-esteem, the culture surrounding yoga often masks and even worsens food and body image issues.

Now more than ever we need yoga teachers who can inspire students to remember their worth, beauty, and greatness! In this timely and impactful teacher training, you’ll learn how to recognize and serve students with body image challenges, eating disorders, and self-loathing. 
You will:

  • Explore the spectrum of food and body image challenges, from undereating and overexercising to binge and emotional eating
  • Learn how to recognize warning signs in students with eating disorders and refer them to professional help
  • Master a formula for having “difficult conversations” with students you’re concerned about
  • Learn teaching strategies to create a safe space for students to drop in and connect with themselves emotionally
  • Expand your teaching repertoire with speaking skills that touch your student’s hearts and catalyze breakthroughs  
  • Recognize the ways you may unintentionally transmit negative body image messages to your students
  • Explore opportunities to incorporate yoga philosophies that encourage students to nourish themselves and love the skin they’re in
  • Become a model and leader for healthy eating, positive body image, radical self-acceptance.

In addition:
Meet and make fabulous friends!
Enjoy the mountain views, fantastic restaurants, and great people in Boulder, CO!

Eat Well!
Healthy snacks will be provided throughout the day such as raw chocolate, beverages, fruit, veggies, and other surprises. Amy’s Italian and Chelsea is a total foodie. It’s how we roll.

Compliments from past graduates:

This training was the best experience of my life. Yoga with Amy has changed my outlook on life. I am much happier than I was before.”

~ Satomi Fujii, MD

Training with Amy has been one of the most fulfilling, empowering and uplifting experiences of my life. I’ve learned how to have a deeper conversation with my body – one that is healthy, sustainable and uplifting. Amy exudes absolute passion, joy and deep knowledge of yoga and so she naturally passes this on to her students. As a yoga teacher, I feel inspired and confident because I now have the tools to empower my students on and off the mat.

~ Sarah Diedrick, USA, Yoga Teacher & Wellness Coach

Thank you for a truly transformative teacher training experience in Boulder. Each day was gift. Amy’s dedication and commitment to excellence and leadership in instruction was visible every day. She led by example and cultivated a group of trainees who embraced the challenges and intensity of a 5 week training with open hearts. I am grateful to have been included in this adventure of learning!

~ Elizabeth Gross, USA, Retired School Administrator

This teacher Training is transformational on so many levels. I not only learned practical skills for teaching, I also shed behavior and attitudes that were holding me back from being my most authentic self. Amy created such a safe space for all of us to learn, make mistakes, laugh, and grow as teachers and as a group.

~ Rachel Klapper, USA, Yoga and Dance Teacher

Amy is one of the most masterful teachers under whom I’ve have been blessed and honored to study. She teaches the depths and intricacies of yoga with timely pace, the passionate gusto of a true leader, and the knowledge and expertise of a modern day sage.

~ David Newbery, Switzerland, Yoga Teacher & Entrepreneur

Amy’s TT gave me the momentum I needed to go to the next level. She helped me to get unstuck in places I didn’t realize I was stuck. Amy didn’t just tell me “anything is possible”, she helped me find the tools to grow as a teacher and as a human being.
