Another Winner from Mark Stephens 9 juin 2014
Par Tuckerby - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Mark Stephens has given the yoga world another excellent resource.

Yoga Adjustments addresses the subject of hands-on instruction, specifically, how to use touch to encourage improved alignment, provide support and guidance, and clarify instructions. As always, Mr Stephens’ approach is student-focused and sensitive. Ask permission before touching. Respect personal boundaries and know that these can change during a session. Teach to the abilities of the person in front of you. Guide the student toward developing awareness and awakening through the asanas.

The scope of the book covers everything from the purposes of touch to where and how (and how not) to touch. Stephens begins with the seven basic principles of hands-on teaching—teaching what you know, asking permission, clear intention, move and breathe with the student, staying safe, teaching the essential asana elements, and supporting stable foundations. From here, he moves on to defining the various responses we hope to elicit, from elongation and activation to stabilization and relaxation. He also is clear about types of touch that can confuse, injure, or cross personal boundaries. His five basic steps to giving hands-on cues and assistance include setting up the asana with a stable base, eliciting elongation and then motion of the spine, followed by refinement and deepening the asana. He outlines nine stances for positioning yourself to maximize stability, comfort, and safety, and nine different hand positions and motions for cueing.

Then the fun begins.

Stephens devotes seven chapters, one for each asana family, to a detailed application of these techniques to 99 asanas, showing specific hand placements for encouraging proper alignment and refinement. For example, for Dhanurasana (Bow Pose), he shows cueing for the hips to encourage posterior pelvic rotation, shoulders to draw them down and away from the ears, and knees to prevent splaying. Modifications include using a blanket under the top front of the pelvis to reduce pressure on the low back and to ease the weight of the position farther back, and a strap if it’s difficult for the student to grasp her ankles. The suggested progression is to explore Side Lying Bow. The section ends with references to pertinent pages in Teaching Yoga and Yoga Sequencing and Stephens’ website.

The descriptions for assuming the poses are the same as those given in Teaching Yoga. Some of the discussion of touch is also from that book, but in Yoga Adjustments, it is elaborated and expanded. It makes for a valuable companion volume to Stephens’ other books.

Motivated home practitioners will find the cues for individual asanas helpful in refining their poses, and will also benefit from the suggested modifications and progressions.

Thank you, Mr Stephens, for sharing your knowledge and philosophy with others. Yoga Adjustments is a worthy and important addition to anyone’s yoga library.

I'm not a yoga teacher, but after 15 years of practice I appreciate that hands-on adjustments are important. Experience has taught me how important it is for my teachers to know how to do adjustments thereby preventing injury and helping me to improve my personal practice. This book is an amazing tool to help me understand in a deeper way the hands onguidance my teachers provide. I think the book will also be a meaningful gift for one of my yoga teachers.

Impressive in breadth and scope! 3 juin 2014

I was quite excited to read Mark Stephens’ "Yoga Adjustments: Philosophy, Principles, and Techniques" to learn different techniques for giving tactile cues. The detail and illustrations, which highlight various tactile cues for over 100 asanas, are clear and concise. Along with the extensive details and application, this book draws on, and gives relevance to, the great works of yoga philosophy ("Hatha Yoga Pradipika," "Yoga Sutras of Patanjali", and "Bhagavad Gita") as well as Western Philosophy (Plato, Socrates, William James and others) to give a broad historical overview of thought regarding the body's innate intelligence.

Finally, I found it quite useful that Stephens offered an extensive notes and references section that allows the reader to dive more deeply into the information presented in the book. I feel like I'm barely scratching the surface of the content in Stephens' book and I am sure I will be continuing to go back and uncover deeper layers upon each subsequent reading. I definitely recommend this book for yoga teachers and those interested in Somatic Theory, and anyone interested in exploring the intelligence and connection between the body/mind.

Another wealth of knowledge and must read for yoga teachers and students alike! 4 juin 2014
Par Rochelle Kindell Stanley - Publié sur

As a yoga instructor I find "Yoga Adjustments" insightful, applicable and a beautiful guide into the inner workings of adjustments. Knowing when to verbally cue and when and how to offer support through hands on adjustments is vital as a teacher.
I have found a richer skill set and a greater since of connectivity to my students on the whole by understanding the "when and how to cue my class".
This book offers teachers many tools to assist students in strengthening their "inner teacher" to encourage a deeper since of awareness in one's personal practice, overall creating more space for the students yoga foundation and personal bliss. Teachers following the concepts of "Yoga Adjustments" will assist in creating a sustainable practice for their students through proper, tactile support as well.

This book is a wonderful reminder on how to continue a safe and sacred practice for teachers and students. A personal thank you to Mark Stephens for bringing this body of work forward as the growth and development continue in the wellness field in respect to yoga.

A Yoga teacher's review 26 juin 2014
Par shannon c mcquaide - Publié sur
Format: Broché
While I have been teaching yoga for several years providing hands-on adjustments is something that I have never felt totally comfortable with or clear about-until Yoga Adjustments. It's a book that covers "adjustments" more thoroughly than any other book out there, and emphasizes the importance of guiding students with their unique capabilities rather than simply trying to get students to "perform" poses. It's a book a highly recommend for any teacher or student of yoga!
