Touch is a direct experience of connecting & touch has always played a big part in healing.
“Believe it or not we all possess the healing touch. The power of touch in the form of a caring, reassuring hug or a pat on the shoulder has been repeatedly demonstrated to have a powerful impact on healing. Even though we are physical beings we are also electrical beings. When we affect one part of the body electromagnetically, we effect every part o
f the body. Electromagnetic frequencies allow total body communication” – Dr Corey SondrupSession 1

PS II.46; Sthira Sukham Asanam - The connection to the earth is steady and joyful.
Perfecting your asana, seat, connection to the earth is the way to begin all else will follow. How can you ground a student in their pose? How can you help a student find a d
eeper connection to allow them to go further into their asana.
