With Amelia Disspain and Liz Bennett

Saturday May 4th and Sunday May 5th

at Yoga Bellingen, Bellingen, NSW

This workshop is offered to help yoga teachers support their students skilfully with touch.

When applied with skill and care, touch can help students expand their physical practice and deepen their connection to their body.

You will:

  • Learn to observe patterns of tension and common “misalignments” 
  • Learn to use touch in a trauma informed and pain aware context 
  • Learn to support students to deepen postures where appropriate, help students find more ease in postures and use touch to bring the light of awareness to their physical practice 
  • Help students build their confidence by trying new things with your support

This workshop is delivered with love by senior Yoga Teacher Amelia Disspain and Yoga Therapist and Physiotherapist Liz Bennett.

As teachers with a combined experience of over 40 years we are passionate about supporting teachers to learn and practice new ways to support their students.

“I had the pleasure of attending the assists and adjusts workshop last year under the gentle guidance of Amelia & Liz. It was such a wonderful container that combined both conversation and comprehensive practice. I left feeling re-inspired; with the tools and confidence to approach touch both safely and intelligently.”

Emily, Yoga Teacher.
