Art of Touch and Cue


In this workshop, you will explore cueing of the full Powerhouse through verbal and touch cues, as well as how to cue appropriate to the beginner, intermediate, and advanced level client. Touch is a gift from the teacher to the client; learn when and when not to give. The movement is just the beginning; the work happens when you go "vertical" with your teaching and deepen the clients' experience of correcting their movement through action.
