This workshop looks at what hypermobility is and how it affects body and mind, how to recognise it and how to work with it. You might be hypermobile yourself or you simply want to learn more about this condition to guide your students.
Hypermobility can mean being an elite gymnast, dancer or instagram yogi, or it might mean being severely disabled and not being well enough to take part in most everyday activities. Many people with hypermobility are somewhere in between.
Today’s culture tends to see yoga largely as a tool to make us more flexible, and classes often attract people who possess greater than average flexibility. Recent research on fascia and stretching is challenging traditional ideas of what is healthy and what leads to ease of movement. Hypermobility might look like an advantage for yoga, but it needs to be addressed with knowledge and awareness so it does not lead to pain and injury.
Susanne holds a Yogacampus level 2 teaching qualification accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga. She also has a BEd in Movement Studies and Sports Science, an MA in Dance, and certification in Pilates, gyrotonic, gyrokinesis and the Alexander Technique.
