Do you feel confident conducting an assessment with a private yoga student? Do you know how to figure out exactly what that student needs and then create a practice that fully supports their unique needs?
If you're not 100% sure, you're not alone. Many yoga teachers and yoga therapists find it challenging to properly assess private students. If that sounds like you, you'd definitely benefit from using the 4-step assessment process used by Yoga Therapists. It's called the Vyuha Model and it comes from that authentic source of yoga wisdom, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
In this video, I run through the 4 steps of this model and show you how to use them in your private yoga sessions. You'll find this process really helps you to:
- Assess a student's needs
- Understand their goals
- Choose exactly the right yoga poses and techniques to support them
I've also created a free and fabulous e-book to help you practice this process with your students. The e-book walks you through each step of the model so you can try it out right away.
