Highlights of Geri’s lecture before the adjustment clinic.

  • Train your eye to know what needs to be adjusted.
  • Use verbal cues first and if that does not work, consider physical adjustments.
  • Know what you’re going to do before you start.
  • Understand the flow of energy in the pose.
  • Begin with the foundation – start with the ground up and help give stability to the pose.
  • It takes skill to go into and out of an adjustment.
  • Adjustments should give clarity.
  • Adjust with kindness, compassion, professionalism, confidence and authority.
  • If the pose is too out of alignment, consider asking the student to back out and then move back in slowly with adjustments.
  • Try to give everyone an adjustment, at the very least adjust in savasana.

Love this photo - it serendipitously shows the three successive stages of the adjustment.
