Elevate Assisting Program

This is a 2-Day Intensive Training

  • Saturday March 2nd 10:30-6:30pm - Lunch from 2:30-3pm

  • Sunday March 3rd 10:30-6:30pm - Lunch from 2:30-3pm

In this training, you will experience giving and receiving hands-on assists and adjustments, and you will discover why this connection is magic. With lots of practice, you will learn how your assists will help people to better FEEL the poses in their bodies. You will develop intuition as well as knowledge of the proper alignment of the poses. With this intuition and a deeper understanding of yoga, you will create connection.

This is open to everyone! Whether you just want a deeper understanding of yoga, the poses, alignment and hands on assists or you want to take these skills and put them into action, this program is designed for all to learn and connect. We highly recommend this program to current yoga teachers, aspiring yoga teachers, or those interested in assisting in classes - This is an important part of being an instructor and we want you to feel comfortable and confident giving assists to your students.

Become Elevate Certified! We want to make sure that our assists are benefiting our students. Before we go out into the world to share our newfound love of touch, it is important that we aren't causing harm to our students unknowingly and that we have experienced feedback to help make sure we are safe in our assists. You will be required to do 5 full class peer assists following this training and one Elevate approved assisting test out. Your peers will receive your assists and provide you with feedback to help you feel confident and ready to test out on Kaycie Hall or Samantha Wiesner (both Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Providers (YACEP)). you will not only be able to share your assists with others, but we hope to have you share them with us!
