Hands-On Assists ~ Advanced Teacher Training with Amy Ippoliti

Book online

4 October - 7 October

Hot Yoga Wellington, Level 2, 139 Featherson Street, Wellington, New Zealand | Cost: Regular: $699; Late: $799

From October 4th - 7th, join Amy Ippoliti at Hot Yoga Wellington & Lower Hutt for an intimate, advanced teacher training that focuses on Hands-on Assists. This week is one of many modular trainings in the 90 Monkeys Advanced Teacher Training curriculum.

A skillful hands-on adjustment in a yoga class can be transformational for your students. Similarly, an inadequate adjustment can be more detrimental to the growth of your students than no adjustment at all. Learn how to give masterful hands-on assists that are both educational and empowering for your students and discover the art of service and attention through refining and practicing your therapeutic touch under Amy’s watchful eye.

This intensive teacher training is designed to provide you with advanced skills in a wide variety of manual assists in order to add depth and sophistication to your teachings. Hands-on adjustments in the context of group settings, private sessions, or in large public settings will be discussed.

Radically expand your teaching repertoire and explore adjustments for a wide range of postures!

You will learn:

-Different types of touch and when to use them

-The difference between therapeutic, opening, stabilizing, and positioning assists

-Methods for centering yourself before teaching to help enhance the energy behind your touch

-How to unlock the mysteries of your own body and that of your students through a review of clear alignment understanding

-Hold your own body safely during hands on adjustments to prevent injury

-How to connect with a student before giving an adjustment to build trust

-How to give verbal adjustments before touching a student to help empower their understanding

-Methods for touching a student so that they move with you and improve their posture

-Observation techniques to help you know when and who to adjust first in a class

-How to adjust with the breath as your ally

-When to use props as part of an adjustment

-How to communicate clearly in your adjustments

-Alignment concepts that will help you know “how to adjust” not just “which standard adjustment to give”

As with all modules in the 90 Monkeys Advanced TT Curriculum, this topic will be explored through both a career and a business lens.

In addition, you will:

Meet and make fabulous friends!

Enjoy the New Zealand landscape, fantastic restaurants, and great people in Wellington!


Prepare in advance! Registered students will receive a Pre-Event Video that Amy has put together to help you get the most out of this training.

40 Day Challenge

9 October - 17 November

All Studios | Cost: No additional cost

40 Day Challenge: 9 October – 17 November 2017

We’re kicking things off in October with an opportunity for a complete reset-- body, mind, & spirit.

Over six weeks, we’ll tap into the holistic potential of a regular yoga practice. We’ll sift through the five koshas and seek a deeper understanding of the radiant, innermost Self.

The koshas, described in the Taittiriya Upanishad (and ancient Tantric text), are interpenetrating, energetic layers of being. Humans are said to have five koshas, which exist as layered sheaths that encase the soul. Annamaya kosha is the outermost, physical kosha, and this is followed by three subtle energy koshas (pranayama, monomaya, and vijnanamaya). Anandamaya kosha, or the bliss sheath, exists as our innermost energy layer. (You might call to mind the image of halved onion or a Russian matryoshka doll as a good visual for how the koshas manifest within our physical bodies). Many of us know what it might feel like to be present in the outermost kosha: nourishing the body with healthy food or a regular yoga practice. But how often do you tap into your innermost wisdom? Recognizing a yoga practice as a modality for healing, tuning into the subtleties of individual koshas and becoming aware and present within all of the koshas at once is hugely empowering (and YES! It is possible!): It is a practice of integrating all parts of your being and expanding your sense of Self.

Tapping into each kosha in turn a the first step toward feeling robustly present and at peace. We'll begin our 40 day exploration of the koshas by directing our attentions to the outermost layer, annamaya kosha, and week by week, we'll make our way through these layers of being:

Week 1: Annamaya kosha

Week 2: Pranayama kosha

Week 3: Manomaya kosha (pt. I)

Week 4: Manomaya kosha (pt. II)

Week 5: Vijnanamaya kosha

Week 6: Anandamaya kosha

We’ll have events sprinkled throughout the 40 Day Challenge that loosely fit within the kosha theme for your enjoyment and interest. It is our hope that this experience, if you choose to participate, is enriching for you: The 40 Day Challenge event is intended as FUN. It is an opportunity for you to create new habits, nurture yourself, and engage with a (perhaps previously unknown to you!) aspect of yoga philosophy. There aren't any additional fees; all we want is for you to participate! All that is required on your end is a commitment to attend THIRTY classes over the course of the challenge. Track your progress at any of our three studios. At the end of our six weeks, six winners will be selected at random (two from each studio: Featherston St., Wakefield St., and Lower Hutt) from our pool of participants. Plus, we’ll have some goodies along the way to award you for your incremental progress!

Not already an unlimited member? We’re running a SPECIAL deal for the 40 Day Challenge: buy 40 days of UNLIMTED yoga for ONLY $220! (This special will be available for purchase from October 1st).
