YOGA ANATOMY & SAFETY Workshop w Hang
Time & Location
About the Event
We all know yoga connects us to something deeper than the body. In order to find that deeper connection, we need to first take care of the body. Like all forms of body movement, injuries and pain can occur from repetitive movements. A smart and informed practice can help minimize unnecessary pain so you can step on the mat regularly and joyfully.
With the idea that we are all built differently, Hang will help you to get to know YOUR body biomechanics and anatomy. She'll also share all the safety aspects on the mat, including the 8 major joints and the do's and don'ts of common yoga poses. Hang will also discuss common yoga injuries from her travelling and teaching experience. The sun salutation and other foundation poses will also be looked under a microscope for joint alignment and muscular function.
All levels welcome! This workshop is for both beginners and seasoned practitioners as well as yoga teachers. Come with lots of questions about your body and your practice, an open mind, notebook and pen. Lots of good stuff will be shared to start incorporating into your practice right away.
