ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS
Pigeon Pose Re-Imagined: Active Hip Opening with Resistance Band
A more old school yoga approach to hip and low back pain was often to practice deep hip-opening postures like pigeon pose. However, many very flexible, long-time practitioners still experience SI joint pain, low back pain, and hip pain despite all this passive stretching. In this workshop, you’ll learn preventative hip-strengthening strategies and exercises that will strengthen your hamstrings, improve your low back stability, and leave your hips and SI joints feeling strong and resilient. Experience how building hip strength using resistance bands can leave you feeling more flexible than before, but with the strength, power, and poise to back it up.
Wrist and Shoulder Resilience: Arm Balance Progressions with Resistance Bands
Let’s be honest, supporting your full body weight on your hands is no small feat. It requires an intelligent, progressive plan. Traditional asana programming often bypasses this prep work and exposes you too soon to loads you may not be adequately trained for. The result is hurty shoulders and wrists. This workshop addresses this gap in preparation by providing you with progressive, variable-loading ‘know how’ to train for stronger wrists and shoulders. Prepare to pull as much as push and learn resistance band arrangements that offload body weight and making arm balances lighter, and thus more manageable to explore. Develop a plan to build strength progressively and eventually benefit from the high loads of arm-balances!
