About this course:
Many people experience neck and back issues. They often they seek out Yoga as a source of relief. It is extremely important to assess the relationship between joints from head to toe in these students to avoid further injury.
Updated event description:
In this workshop, led by Yoga I.S. founder, Lauren Eirk
we will employ a biomechanical take on real classroom issues. Students attending this workshop will practice classic Yoga positions using the unique Yoga Integrated Science™ Methodology in order to evaluate range of motion and potential issues.
Attendees will see why creating powerful isometric resistance challenges is important. Students will learn how to improve range of motion and overall joint stability in clients with neck and back challenges. We will explore how weakness in the trunk and lower extremities can negatively impact neck and back mobility. Students will learn how to construct therapeutic modifications that help practitioners experience more comfort and improved strength.
Explore how this evaluation process can be a great indicator of a client’s ability to deal with external loads and other various postures in his or her exercise program. This hands on elective will utilize classroom time and studio time to help students thoroughly understand the content.
