Yoga for Healthy Backs with Erin Moon

Mar 11, 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Yoga for Healthy Backs:

Anatomy and Asana of a strong lumbo-pelvis hips complex.

In this 4hr workshop, geared toward Yoga instructors, we will take a closer look at the biomechanics of low back, pelvis and hips. This complicated structure is one of the most commonly misaligned and injured parts of the body in Asana and in regular living.

We will look at how the anatomy all fits together and how we can help strengthen and retain/gain range of motion in this complex area of the body. We will see how to cue and layer awareness into teaching public and private clients in hopes of building an injury free practice, new habitual patterns that can be used in everyday life and a strong healthy back!

“The 2010 Global Burden of Disease Study estimated that low back pain is among the top 10 diseases and injuries that account for the highest number of Disability Adjusted Life Years worldwide.” (source World Health Organization). “Low back pain (LBP) is the second most common cause of disability in US adults and a common reason for lost work days.” according to the US National Library of Medicine National Institute of Health.

The great news is that with mindful awareness of the biomechanics of these complex structures, yoga can be a big help!! It is time to put down the book of old alignment cues and see all the bodies in the room up close!

Join Erin, of World Spine Care (co-creator and director of WSC Yoga Project), to learn how Yoga can help lessen the global burden of disease!

This workshop counts towards CEU credits with Yoga Alliance
