Hands on Adjustments Yoga Teachers Workshops
Join us this September for a series of Adjustment workshops – for yoga teachers only.
Learn the kramas of adjustments, learn to see beyond expectation, to communicate without words using your body as the communication tool.
Review hands on techniques, placement, purpose and power. Disseminate alignment and how to tweak it to get to the source of the pose. Learn how to leverage body parts with your own without any effort on your part, without need for words, directing a student to move through your movement, creating a dance between the two which empowers the student and let’s the student believe they are the source of the adjustment, and teaching the student economy of movement. Teach a student to feel the potential in their movements and in the pose. Learn to adjust without doing the pose for the student, delivering sensitivity of awareness from you to the student.
Practice the adjustments on fellow students.
This series is from 10.30am – 12.30pm September 6,7,8. R300 per session or R700 for 3.

In the hands of Kerry Weavind:
“Indie Yoga makes you strong for life, flexible for life, playful for life, an Independent Spirit. I created Indie Yoga out of inspiration gained from all yoga towards being free – free in my body, innovative in my thinking, courageous in my Spirit. But, my focus has always been how to translate this to an experience that will inspire people. I believe I have a knack for taking information, grinding it into something relevant, challenging assumptions and encouraging ownership of Self and work in this way to motivate students/teacher trainees to shake their bodies, and minds to find the truth within. My passion has always been the mind, how to tame it, manage it, and quieten it for the bigger picture and in the past 5 years, this passion has evolved into leaving the mind to a secondary place and focussing on vibration and living from this larger perspective. You can expect to be moved physically, challenged mentally and introduced to your vibration, and ways to let this rule your experience of life, as a person, as a yoga teacher, and as a leader”
Kerry has 17 years experience teaching yoga and shares her wisdom, intuitive insight and philosophy through teaching yoga:
Kerry’s yoga took her from New York to East Timor, to India, Peru, Sri Lanka and South Africa where she taught and studied internationally. Kerry has studied with the International Yoga Vedanta Center in their first and advanced trainings in India and France.
In South Africa, since 2002, Kerry Weavind opened a yoga studio in Fourways and in 2011 opened a second yoga studio, between both offering 4 classes a day to yoga enthusiasts who look for the ‘more than exercise’ benefits of yoga which include focus and concentration, balancing of the central nervous system, reducing stress, and calming the mind but most importantly developing a more loving relationship with body, mind, personality and Self.
Since 2004, she has trained over 120 teachers, introduced a number of styles to the South African yoga market including ashtanga vinyasa yoga and Anusara yoga with a handful of international Yoga teachers hosted by Indie Yoga as well as pioneering creative workshop concepts like Iyengar Yoga for Ashtangi’s. Kerry has also written a number of articles and appeared in magazines and on television promoting Yoga to mainstream viewers. She has appeared on Top Billing, Free Spirit among others, and has represented the power of yoga in most leading magazines including Marie Claire, Destiny Magazine, Women and Home and she has personally written articles for Odyssey magazine and Complete Yoga magazine among others.
Kerry’s passion for yoga lies in the relationship that one can develop with body, mind and Spirit through yoga, to change every facet of life. Yoga is a lifestyle which is attractive to Kerry, a resetting every day to a positive and open outlook.
