The Art of Adjustments with Peter Goodman

The Art of Yoga Adjustments – A Training Module with Peter Goodman

The Art of Yoga Adjustments is training for the skilled practitioner and teachers of yoga asana from all yoga systems. Peter Goodman offers this training based on his many years of practice and teaching.

There is risk of muscular-skeletal injury when the yoga student (including ourselves) is misaligned and not in the general form of the pose. A teacher can offer refinements, both with verbal cues and hands-on touch, to help the student experience greater space, freedom and happiness in poses.

Over this 15hr training (5 x 3hr classes) we will work with principles of biomechanics and alignment, learn about sensitive and respectful touch, and how to guide the body to good alignment and consequently greater stability and freedom in more than 35 poses.

There will be pairwork throughout the course, to learn, observe and feel appropriate touch and adjustments. The practical work is backed up by a visual power point which is provided as a full colour 100 page PDF manual to every participant, send by WeTransfer prior to the course.

What you will learn in this training

  • How to use principles of alignment therapeutically to align the biomechanics of the muscular – skeletal system
  • How the application of these principles aids the release of discomfort in many areas of the body
  • How proper hands-on guidance for the body with the “Liquid Touch” offers a stable and safe result for the student
  • Partnerwork for the full experience and providing feedback to each other and to the group, allowing us to learn the art of listening and receiving
  • Explore working with the energetic body to connect with one another intuitively and with great sensitivity
