IN PERSON TRAINING
Yoga Prehab/Posthab Immersion: Injury Prevention and Recovery (10 hours)
IN-PERSON ONLY at YogaSource Los Gatos
One of yoga’s greatest paradoxes is that some students come to class to alleviate the same musculoskeletal conditions that yoga might exacerbate in another student.
The same pose can have a protective or therapeutic effect in some while aggravating symptoms in another. In this immersion, you’ll unpack the definition of injury, learn about soft tissue capacity, and examine recent advances in pain science so you are empowered to teach group classes to a diverse population.
Following an extensive and thorough lecture, the asana intensive will immediately apply those principles in real bodies in real time. Through masterful prop arrangement in both active and restorative poses, you will learn to address common musculoskeletal aches and pains to keep your students safe and excited to practice yoga.
You will learn to:
See individual variations as an opportunity, not a complication
Customize cues to promote adaptation and change
Utilize empowering language to incite confidence in your students
Expand your understanding of common “complaints” (shoulder and hip issues, back pain, tendinopathies, hypermobility, etc.)
Sequence to support the injury prevention/recovery continuum
