Yoga for Injury Prevention and Management How to Stay Safe and Have a Practice of Longevity

For all levels, including yoga teachers who want to help students with injuries.

Wrist issues; neck and shoulder dysfunction; low back, hip, and knee pain—as a culture, we are disconnected from our bodies. The underuse, overuse, and abuse of our joints often leads to inflammation, pain, or injury. WHAT YOU’LL EXPERIENCE
• Functional movement
• Posture assessment
• Lecture and experiential learning

Preventing an injury before it begins is the best way to avoid it in the future. Yoga can help us increase inner awareness of sensations, so we can listen to the feedback our body is giving us and become aware of our movement patterns and postural tendencies, restoring balance to our body and increase well-being. Come explore

  • Where you are overexerting your body
  • Which joints you don’t have full range of motion in
  • Areas you have relied on and exhausted, making them ripe for injury
  • Functional movement patterns for preexisting injuries.

By creating more space in the joints, we move out of compression and may increase the general health of the joint by being centered and balanced. This can help decrease inflammation and pain as we gain access to control of the muscles around the place of injury.

Note Bring a notebook. Lecture materials will be shared with participants.
