  1. Adjustments

  2. 5 kinds of adjustments • Presence: this is the most important one. • Verbal: speak to entire class; may stand next to one student who needs special cue and address everyone--very effective • Model: less is more because it takes students out of themselves • Press points: light touch creates energetic assistance and awareness--very effective

  3. Manipulations • hands on. . generally w/students you’ve formed a relationship with • avoid head, neck and sometimes knees; genitals, inner thighs, breasts; use common sense • sync your breath w/that of your student and observe his/her breath, body and facial movements • go in gently, sense their energy field and sync w/this • firm but gentle touch; bone to bone; heel of hand--no fingers • listen to student w/your hands

  4. Most Common Manipulations • Child’s pose: from behind, heels of hands on each side of sacrum; press down and back to ground pelvis; may smooth spine w/one hand, moving this from pelvis to shoulders • Down dog: from facing their back, heels of hands on sacrum; use body weight to press pelvis back and down • Supine spinal twist: one hand on pelvis and other on opposite shoulder; press down and away to lengthen the student’s torso
