Back pain is one of the most familiar reasons that people seek out Yoga classes and a persistent struggle for many. When practiced with the proper technique and awareness yoga can be an incredibly effective and transformative tool to both relieve acute back pain and further begin to address the underlying imbalances that lead to the development of chronic back pain. Better yet, Yoga can act as a preventative tool, maintaining the health and fluidity of the spine so those niggles never set in!
This weekend is a deeply restorative exploration of the spine, its form and its function. Expect a practical, applicable and experiential workshop that gives you both the feel and the theory covering;
Gravity and Ground Force; the evolution, form and function of the spine.
What is neutral; the lumbosacral complex and the pelvic floor.
Putting a spring in your step; gait mechanics and why they matter for therapeutic yoga.
Occupational Hazards; head positioning and the shoulder girdle.
Common Occurances; supporting common back problems in yoga practice.
Leave with a solid understanding of how your spine works, and how to ensure both your own and others backs are always benefitting from their yoga.
