Healing Adjustments: The Art & Science of Adjusting Wisely with Monica Gauci

August 10, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 3:30 pm


Monica Gauci became inspired to teach this workshop after realising that many yoga teachers can be hesitant to touch their students in certain poses.

  • Touch is the only sense we cannot live without!
  • Touch senses… Touch communicates…
  • Touch has the power to heal.
  • Learn to use this precious tool with confidence.

There are MANY different ways to adjust a yoga posture…

  • Learn what makes an adjustment safe and sound and the ingredients that make up a quality adjustment.
  • Appreciate the differences that effect student’s abilities and limitations and learn how to respectfully accommodate these.
  • Understand the difference of visual, auditory and kinesthetic (touch) cues to communication.
  • Recognise the profound power of touch to educate, transform and heal.
  • Know when it is appropriate to use verbal instruction, the guidance of light touch, hands-on corrections or body-weight adjustments.
  • Learn postural corrections and adjustments to a variety of postures within the main asana groups, eg, back bends, forward bends, twists.
  • Discover which postures are unsafe to adjust and understand why.
  • Practice the art and science of adjusting on fellow yogis.
  • Feel confident to guide, assist and enhance your student’s practice with beneficial, quality, safe and effective corrections!

Monica draws on adjusting principles from her professional education as a Chiropractor combined with her 39 years of personal yoga practice. Her insights as a therapist make this workshop powerfully relevant. Her teaching is guided by her passion to help others.
