The Gift of the Assist: Using Dynamic Assists to Power Up Your Yoga Practice and Explore Teacher Training

Gift of Assist FinalTHIS Sunday
June 8, 2014
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
YogaSakti in Salem
You’ve experienced it before: the gift of that perfect adjustment by your teacher that moves you deeply into a yoga posture. Here’s your chance to spend an entire afternoon receiving — and giving — those powerful assists.
If you are interested in how touch, intuition, alignment, and adjustment can deepen your experience and understanding of asana, this workshop is for you. Whether you’re a yoga teacher, teacher trainee, or a student looking to go deeper, The Gift of the Assist workshop will teach you how to give powerful hands-on assists with confidence, sensitivity, and presence, using universal principles of alignment as a foundation.
This one-day workshop embraces Senior Yoga Sakti Instructor Kat Mansfield’s experiential learning approach, helping you gain insight and understanding of your own body, see mis-alignments in others, and support students in poses with instructive, corrective, and deepening hands-on assists. We’ll also discuss physical and verbal cues, the use of props, and assists for those with specific limitations or injury.
After this workshop, you may use the tools to understand your body better in your personal yoga practice, as a gift to help friends in their yoga practice, or explore the opportunity to continue your education with a full 200 hour Yoga Sakti Teacher Training in alignment-based vinyasa which will be offered by Kat starting in August 2014.

Friday Equinox Yoga Cancelled. Get your Equinox on Thursday!


Due to a marketing glitch, the Spring Equinox Yoga scheduled for Friday, March 21st has been cancelled.  Two great options remain:  FIRST, celebrate the ACTUAL Equinox on Thursday, March 20th at 7:30 PM at Yoga Sakti in Salem.  We will be there to explore the power of balance when the day and the night are absolutely equal. Dynamic Yoga, $15, and some dharma to bring you to spring.  SECONDLY, mark your calendars for Saturday, June 21st when we will celebrate the Summer Solstice with a Yoga Mala, a series of 108 Surya Namaskar/Sun Salutations that will bring the sun straight into your heart. Jesse Ciarmataro will play this gig so your Mala and fire will be accompanied by 2 hours of incredible live vibe.  This workshop will be posted soon on the Yoga Sakti website.  Spring is coming and we’ll be there to welcome it with you on Thursday night.  See you on the mat.


SpringEquinoxFinalTwice a year, the night and the day balance.  Equinox — literally “equal night” — balances both the light of the day and the dark of the night.  Just as Siva and Sakti are the masculine and female balance, as gravity balances energy, this is a night to explore how dark balances light, both within ourselves and in the world.  Join us at Yoga Sakti in Salem at 7:30 PM on Friday, March 21st for an evening of dynamic yoga vinyasa with Kat Mansfield’s practical spirituality and freeing directive , the pulse of Jess Ciarmataro’s alternative R & B electronic indie soul and a candlelight meditation designed to bring you deep and send you forward, refreshed and empowered, into the spring.
