Some people practice yoga for the sweat, the challenge and the opportunity to test their physical limitations. Others do it for tranquility and peace of mind: to take back control of their breath and body from a stressful world.
Whatever your objective, don’t allow pain to prevent you from pursuing it.
There are simple solutions to the common aches and pains you experience: from wrist and shoulder pain in chaturanga, to lingering low back pain the day after a class of intensive back bends. Each of these things—along with many other aches and apprehensions—can be eliminated through the integration of a few simple rules of biomechanics.
Attendees will leave the workshop empowered through an understanding of how their individual body’s manage the demands of their yoga practice—and of their life “off the mat.” In addition to exercises and techniques for strong, pain-free movement, participants will also learn how to approach the exercises and techniques they already know in a way that works better for them.
In this 5-hour workshop, learn how to:
Increase range in the hips, knees and ankles—without painful stretching
Eliminate pain in the wrist, elbow and shoulder during planks and inversions
Reduce neck tension and hold the head high with ease
Improve balance and coordination in any pose
