How to Join a Zoom Online Live Stream Workshop
Join Joan Hyman for a three-day clinic designed for both teachers and practitioners looking to increase their knowledge of asana by understanding correct alignment and how to use props to support postures and prevent injury.
Teachers will gain confidence in refining instruction, sequencing, and gaining an understanding of asana in a deeper way to adjust to their own individual needs and those of students. Practitioners will deepen their understanding of alignment to optimize their experience and help to gain longevity and insight in the practice.
By studying anatomy in certain poses, we will address how to stack bones to allow the muscles to work in an optimal way to enable our bodies to work efficiently and prevent injury. We will slowly climb up each platform of the body and refine each section to create stability and support in vulnerable places like the knees, lower back, and neck.
Joan will open with a brief discussion of the anatomy of the bones and muscles that support each section before moving into a workshop style practice using wall space and props to help to align the bones and teach how to engage deeper muscles needed to support specific joints.
We will also look at different bodies and point out areas that are dull (tamasic) or overworked (ragasic) and teach how to find balance (sattvic) in these areas.
Gain an understanding on how to work with props and wall space to align from the inside out so the postures can teach you how good you can feel in your body!
