Adjustments Lab

Adjustments Lab

Led by: Cari Friedman + Jon Ziff Sint

From November 17, 2019 at 1:00 pm until November 17, 2019 at 3:00 pm at Dumbo

Using the Katonah Yoga® principles as a lens, Cari and Jon will guide you through a variety of postures and adjustments. The workshop is designed for the adjustments to ground and solidify the yoga practitioner’s positions, adding length and direction to the body while simultaneously finding volume and comfort in the pose. Many classes are taught with verbal cues and assists. Verbal cues are good for personal ownership; however, you are still navigating through your own habitual nature. Often assists are not well explained, but only experienced. We will demonstrate how hands on adjustments, with energy-metaphors can be revelatory. A steady, grounded adjustment will inform one’s direction, vision, comfort, and overall well-being. The goal is to have a healthy lifelong yoga practice.

This workshop is for anyone who would like to deepen their knowledge and experience through adjustments. It is especially useful for the dedicated practitioner, teachers in training and teachers who would like to understand how to further educate their students through their bodies.

Breaking down shapes and postures
Demonstrations to help assist for stronger understanding and direction
