A yoga assist then, is motion taken in a microcosmic connection that reveals macrocosmic truths. It is motion carried out in mutuality with the very best of intentions and the blessing of the teacher's instructors.
The giving of yoga is an art. Yoga assists are not static they comprise a flowing dance of body, breath, and strength. They are based mostly on ongoing target and awareness of the connection between companions in the method. It takes two to Tango! As in Tango, in each and every experience with yoga student and instructor there is an equation of reciprocity.
