Sydney: The Art of Hands on Adjusting with Sarah Platt-Finger

February 12, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm


From an energetic perspective, our hands are the transmitters of Shakti, the mother-nature force the governs us. They also relate to the heart and throat chakras, so how we touch relates to both how we feel and how we communicate. In this 2-part workshop, Yogiraj Sarah Finger will review the art of touch and how teachers can help facilitate the experience of yoga through hands on adjustments. Learn how to use the principles of ISHTA yoga to enhance the free flow of breath and life force energy. Some basic and deepening spots will be covered.

Part 1, 9:30am – 11:30am: Theoretical Approach to Hands On AdjustmentsThis 2-hour session is open to yoga teachers of all levels and will cover the basic concepts of hands-on adjustments. Using the principles of ISHTA yoga, we will look at the intention of spotting from both a physical and energetic perspective, explore the Seven Segments of ISHTA alignment, and discuss the necessary safety precautions when giving hands-on assistance. Learn about the art of touch through a yogic lens!

Part 2, 1pm – 4pm: Practical Application of Hands-On Adjustments (3 hours)

One of the translations of ISHTA Yoga is “that which resonates with the spirit.” Yoga is not a one size fits all practice, and neither is the art of giving hands-on adjustments. In this session, Sarah will cover specific foundational, educational, and deepening spots to help enhance your teaching. Together we will look at different bodies and assess how to determine the appropriate adjustment for the individual – resulting in spaciousness, structure, ease, and the free flow of prana, or life force energy.

$150 ($130 early bird) for both sessions
