The Art of Delivering Assists

This two half-days intensive program will equip you with the tools to powerfully and effectively assist a Baptiste Yoga class. Assisting is the ultimate act of service in the yoga classroom. As an assistant your job is to make connections with the students through skillful, intentional assists. You will study True North Alignment (TNA) and how to effectively create this alignment in your student’s bodies through hands on assists. You will learn at least one, or more, assists for every pose in Journey into Power (the Baptiste Yoga sequence). You will engage in discussion about best assisting practices and how to avoid common assisting pitfalls. You will learn & practice the Actions of Artful Assisting (AAA). During Day 1, you will master the content of TNA and AAA and practice common assists. On Day 2, you will put your new skills into action and assist a yoga class.

Program is facilitated by Certified Baptiste Instructor and FIT to Lead graduate Michelle Bass.
