Movement Science Meets Asana – A New Paradigm

Trina Altman - Movement Science Meets Asana - A New ParadigmSaturday, February 26, 11:00 – 2:00PM ET
.
Are you finding that your students often struggle to do even the most basic poses in your classes? Or, if they’re able to do all the poses, do they complain of wrist, back or hip pain?

Unfortunately, most people are desk bound and their only movement for the day is during yoga class, so their bodies aren’t well adapted for the large ranges of motion required. Conversely, many of our students who are able to practice all the poses are still in pain, because they aren’t balancing out their extreme ranges of motion with stability and strength.

If you’re struggling with helping your students become more embodied and want strategies to create a safer class environment, this workshop is for you.

A New Beginning : An Updated Approach to Prepare Your Students for Asana

Trina Altman - A New Beginning : An Updated Approach to Prepare Your Students for AsanaSaturday, February 26, 3:00 – 6:00PM ET
.
In yoga classes, we’re trying to create an environment that nurtures your mind as well as your structure. However, many of our students don’t feel safe in classes, because they’re afraid of doing the poses “incorrectly” or receiving an unwanted hands-on adjustment.

Additionally, in most yoga classes, a typical warm up doesn’t facilitate joint differentiation. For example, in cat/cow most students will flex and extend their spine in the places that already have the most mobility, rather than finding movement in places that are underused.

Beginning your classes with somatic exercises and sensory feedback methods before a preparatory exercise such as cat/cow, helps your students become aware of movement blind spots that may contribute to pain in more advanced poses later in class.

Preparatory Exercise: Introducing Creativity & Critical Thinking Into Your Classes

Trina Altman - Preparatory Exercise: Introducing Creativity & Critical Thinking Into Your ClassesSunday, February 27, 11:00 – 2:00PM ET
.
Modern postural yoga uses poses that in theory prepare the body for a peak pose at the end of class. However, exercise science has shown that there is a more effective way. By incorporating preparatory exercises into our classes, we can better prepare the body for more challenging asanas, while bridging the gap between our sedentary lifestyle and yoga asana. This also helps to reduce the risk of injury.

Also, asana is a highly specialized form of movement that often emphasizes aesthetics over function. Through preparatory exercise, we can balance out our practice, by including movements that don’t exist in yoga poses, thus reducing our risk of pain and overuse injuries.

If you’ve been trying to incorporate preparatory exercises in your teaching, but have been struggling with selecting the right exercises and sequencing them within a class, then this workshop is for you.

Oftentimes, alignment cues are thought to be synonymous with safety. However, not all alignment cues correlate with biomechanics or function. This is why critical thinking skills can make you a more effective teacher.

In this Yoga Deconstructed® workshop, you will learn to apply critical thinking when teaching, creating and selecting preparatory exercises.
