Just Be Yoga Art of Assisting 2.0
withJessicaMicheletti at Walnut Creek
Sat, Dec 2, 2017 at 12:30 pm - 5:30 pm
You've taken the JBY Assisting program and by now you know that ninety-nine times out of a hundred, a student will be glad you took the time to give them an assist. I almost always love getting a sweet deepening assist. It's been shown that our country as a whole is severely touch-starved, and that a simple touch to say "hey, I'm here" or "you're in a safe place" can be incredibly healing and powerful. People come to yoga to be supported, and it's your job as a teacher (or an assistant) to hold the space for a student to be nurtured.
When your intention for assisting comes from a place of goodness and service, you can't go wrong!
Join us for a Saturday afternoon full of connection and fun. We will quickly review the basics and then dive into assisting the juicy stuff (inversions, deep twists, balancing, and even some thai massage). You will leave feeling connected, grounded, and ready to share your healing touch with all those light beings around you.

Join us in a special Cacao Ceremony, where we will gather together and share in the powerful and heart-opening offerings of ancient cacao.
