"Transformational Teaching Through Yoga Adjustments truly empowers us as yoga teachers to fully understand and embrace the foundational elements of a meaningful yoga practice, from the science and safety to the philosophy and ethics. From there, this book then challenges us to integrate this wealth of knowledge into our teaching, along with a deeper understanding of our students and ourselves, to ultimately cultivate an innovative approach to not only teaching yoga, but to truly living yoga.
As both a fitness professional and an experienced yoga teacher, I find great comfort in and deep appreciation for the purposeful adjustments, meaningful words and inspiring life lessons Stacy has shared throughout this book. From discussing the science, safety and proper execution of hands-on adjustments, to sharing the importance of teaching from your authentic self, respecting your students and remaining a humble lifelong learner, the knowledge she has imparted on both current and future yoga teachers from her years of experience and genuine love and compassion is truly profound.
Whether you are new to teaching or are a seasoned practitioner, this book will ignite your passion in a whole new way, and will inspire you as a yoga teacher to uniquely be yourself, allowing you to open more minds, warm more hearts and inspire positive, meaningful change in the lives of those you touch, both on and off the mat."
