After decades of working with clients and training thousands of teachers, we've distilled the core components of a therapeutic practice into a series of workshops for both the new and avid yoga practitioner. Each workshop section begins with a short lecture on an anatomical area, then moves on to explore its therapeutic application through practice to bring the information to life. We will cover topics that are hard to fit into group classes, but are crucial for yoga practitioners and teachers to understand in order to help prevent injuries and optimize the way we move. You will leave with an arsenal of information to instantly incorporate into your practice and teaching. SHOULDER - September 7th - 10h-13h The shoulder girdle is a common area of struggle for both the new yogi and the regular vinyasa practitioner. The shoulder joints are inherently inclined toward mobility, creating the need to cultivate stability when we challenge the joints in weight-bearing poses like chaturanga dandasana. During a short lecture you'll learn the anatomy of the shoulder and a theoretical approach to working with these joints therapeutically before moving through guided practices that enable you to immediately translate this knowledge into your body and onto your mat. HIP - September 7th - 14h-17h This workshop explores the need for equality between stability and mobility in the hip joint. In a yoga practice hip stability occurs naturally to some extent, but what each of us needs to maintain balance in this joint can vary greatly from person to person. Through a brief lecture and guided yoga practice, you'll look at the structure and function of the hip joint and dig in to how to individualize for your personal needs even in a group class. SPINE - September 8th - 10h-13h The central theme of this workshop is maintaining the integrity of the precious structures of the spine and all that it entails. Learning to move efficiently, with the support of the core, gluts and legs is key not just in a movement practice but also in the challenges of our lives. Through a combination of theory and practice you'll understand how how the parts of the spine work together with the core and legs, and learn how to move with solid mechanics that allow you to rewrite your autopilot responses. MFR - September 8th - 14h-17h Understand what myofascial release is and how it works before learning a few important things to avoid and how to use it on your own. We'll move through a myofascial release practice that explores the areas we've found to be most helpful in the legs, hips, shoulders and back. You will leave with self-care information that you can use right away. This practice is myofascial release only (no yoga) and is open to everyone, no yoga experience needed.
