"I use adjustments more in my classes now and as a result I feel more
alert and energized when I'm teaching...my class size has been growing"

Praise for Hands-On Teaching:

"This is a thoughtful guide for stepping into the exploration of making meaningful adjustments considerate of the safety of the Student and Teacher, and cognizant of the emotional and energetic elements."

-- Robert Boustany, Master Teacher, Founder of Pralaya Yoga

"While it is ideal to go to a live workshop to receive and retain this information, this system is the next best thing, addressing the many layers of hands-on assists & enabling me to practice, and excel in, the adjustments. I appreciate the verbal cuing, the clear demonstrations, and the efficiency of each assist. It is through offerings such as these that yoga teachers build confidence and evolve while enriching their classes and the experience of their students. As a teacher and studio owner I recommend that every yoga teacher own this DVD."

-- Kim Greeff, Evolve Yoga Studio owner,

   senior yoga teacher

“I used to be shy about giving hands-on assists – feeling like I was going to hurt someone, not knowing what adjustments to give etc. After working with Steve & Talya my progress is nothing short of remarkable. I now have the confidence about where to put my hands, and how to move someone. I understand the motions and the actions of the assists, and I can give someone an assist while continuing to teach the entire class. That’s how natural it feels now.”

-- Abby Hall, yoga teacher
