Working Safely in Yoga with Shoulders and Hips - How to balance the demands of flexibility and stability
In striving for flexibility and greater range of movement in our Yoga practice we can sometimes find ourselves fighting the natural processes of the body. The body is very intelligent and will always seek to control any range of motion, sometimes by tightening the very joint that we are seeking to increase the range of mobility in. If we continue to push with the Shoulders and hips in particular we can end up de-stabilising the joint structures in the pursuit of opening.
In this workshop we will look at the anatomy of those most vulnerable joints, namely the hips and shoulders. We will look at the competing demands of flexibility and stability, and learn how strategies to stabilise and strengthen these joint structures can lead to greater range of movement and flexibility.
This will be a theoretical and practical workshop, with a strong focus on anatomy and the strategies and approaches that help us look after our hips and shoulders more effectively in our Yoga practices.
Please bring your usual yoga gear and a notebook and pen along with a contribution to a shared vegetarian lunch.
The venue has easy free parking within a short walking distance, and is lovely and warm with underfloor heating!
