Yoga Alliance | Part Time | In-Person

The Art of Assisting is a bespoke training that highlights the power of touch as a means for deep communication and connection. This training is for yoga teachers to explore the craft of hands-on assisting with confidence and integrity. In harnessing the skill of assisting yoga we enter a dynamic, non-verbal conversation with our students to guide them towards a more empowered personal practice.


Over a long weekend, we will explore the many ways in which assisting can enrich our teaching, as well as our students’ practice. We will delve into the importance of:

  • energetic awareness

  • the quality of touch 

  • understanding physical limitations

  • trauma sensitivity

  • refinement of posture technique and alignment

  • anatomy and physiology

  • modifications

  • working with props


Via the practice of intentional seeing and listening we will learn how to read and efficiently assess different body frames and how to offer the most attuned assist to guide your students towards full flourishment.


An intentional hands on assist; at the right moment, aligned with rhythmic breath and movement has the power to stabilise, open and awaken the receivers practice. With skilful guidance we can aid the process of refining alignment, releasing physical stiffness and unblocking energetic channels. Our hands are conduits for great healing!


This course will give you the confidence to seamlessly step into the space of your students and engage in a transformative experience, that lasts much longer than the touch itself.


Detailed demonstrations will help with the biomechanics and technical side of the practice. There will be ample practical time to get hands-on and experiment with your peers to explore the many effective and receptive ways we can assist yoga postures.

"Elisha and Fraser provided a very caring and nurturing environment to take my yoga teaching journey to the next level. I felt the feedback was relevant and practical. Would recommend to anyone from the experienced yogi to beginner."



"An active participant and graduate of first Kai yoga teacher training, in 2018, is one of the best accomplishments of my self care PSTD healing journey. In a personal vow to keep moving forward, the timelines of this program, one of the best decisions I’ve personally made for all aspects of my mind, body, spirit of the soul - well being. A hugely transformational journey of sorts. I simply cannot speak highly enough, of Elisha and Fraser leading the program. Done so with articulate and indughtful thought, care, hands in support, knowledge transfer and professionalism. That is. Simply, best in class. The course content, rich in the ancient yogic traditions, lineage and ancestory. Learning through the great old Sages of yoga through ancient Indian philosophy, poetic Sanskrit language to honour those traditions and whose teachings apply most invaluably in today’s worldly times. A practice, of sass a (physical body) and breath (prana) in movement, emphasised by importance of understand the anatomy for safety and alignment. A purity of a flow that heals, all aspects of the mind, and one that connects and brings together community under a common thread of kindness, love and connection, good for the self and towards one another. Yoga truly is ‘a journey to the self, of the self through the self. Bhavad Gita. This incredible transformation and transitioning milestone, has further validated my own commitment to selflessly drive attention, awareness of how Yoga and aligned psychology has helped me, through deep trauma and survivorship - in order that I will help and serve others in my community near and afar. Thank you, for this opportunity."



"The level of quality in the teacher training surpassed my expectations. I thought it would be a memorable experience with Fraser and Elisha but that was further enhanced by a support team of independent facilitators. It was a very personal well rounded training which gave me a greater understanding and insight into all aspects of becoming a better yoga teacher."


"I really think that the passing of time has allowed me to appreciate just what a transformative experience the training was for me…the training really was a seminal event in my life – it fundamentally changed the way I see myself and my place in the world. 

 To say that the training deepened my practice would be an understatement! Before the training I practised no more than once a week, and while I had a yearning for the holistic, spiritual side of yoga, my asana practice was very much a form of physical exercise. Since completing the course I’ve had a studio membership and practise every day in some shape or form – whether it be meditation, pranayama, yin or vinyasa – and I try to live by yogi values on and off the mat. My practise is now very much a spiritual practice – it’s the time that I come home to re-dedicate myself to my values and goals and to gain perspective on whatever else is going on in my life." ELLA
