Hands-on Adjustments with Kilty Inafuku
What will you learn?
We'll spend the day improving your skills at giving hands-on adjustments. It's primarily intended for yoga teachers but can absolutely support anyone in the realm of fitness and bodywork. My goal is to introduce fundamental concepts with regards to physical touch in a yoga space and give you the opportunity to practice different adjustments on different bodies. This is a key component because all bodies are unique, feel different, and will respond in their own way.
You should walk away with three things: 1. a stronger sense of which bodies can benefit from certain adjustments 2. a more confident touch and 3. a clear idea of how to communicate with your words and your hands. I hope to share adjustments that feel good for your students and invite them to explore their practice further.
We will practice adjustments for:

Kilty grew up in Kāneʻohe, and now lives in Pūpūkea, on the north shore of O'ahu. She didn't find yoga until she moved to Los Angeles, California to study for a B.S. in Civil & Environmental Engineering at UCLA. Fast forward a year: She left the engineering world and continues to hold the role of yoga educator, with a 200-HR training under Jay Co and 300-HR under Jason Crandell.
Kilty is foremost a student and continues to pursue studies under various teachers with the aim of sharing more yoga knowledge and practice within her community. She teaches locally on Oahu with occasional U.S. mainland workshops and international retreats, including previous destinations of Iceland, France, Japan, Patagonia, Nicaragua, and the Galapagos.
She believes that what happens ON the mat is simply a practice for what we do OFF the mat. How you talk to yourself, how you approach a challenging situation, how you receive, and how you do anything in your physical practice is usually a direct reflection of what's happening in your everyday practice of life (the real yoga).
As a teacher, Kilty maintains a structured approach, which is very in line with her scientific mindset. She encourages making purposeful choices based on what you need that day, whether it's confronting challenge with a playful attitude or stepping into a more introspective space of observation. In her classes, you can expect a physically demanding vinyasa-based practice, supported by the philosophical teachings of this discipline.
