Injury Prevention and Recovery  LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Getting injured is an inevitable part of life and if we're wise, we can learn some of the most valuable lessons from our injuries. As a yoga practitioner our aim is to injure ourselves and others as little as possible in everything we do including asana. To do this we must learn and teach the difference between beneficial discomfort and injurious pain. The injurious pain signal is one that requires an immediate change in approach and is a call to attention that something is about to go very wrong, but even when we're incredibly diligent sometimes we still make errors in judgment and get injured. When an injury occurs the road back to health can be a scary and frustrating one but it doesn't have to be. In this workshop, we'll explore how to prevent injuries from happening by understanding the range of motion joints have and how to ask our students not to move past the limits of their physical structure. We'll then further this and look at how to approach healing once an injury has occurred both physically and most importantly how to handle the mind's thoughts about injury and the recovery process.

The practice of yoga has taught Alexandria Crow how to approach life with open eyes and a fearless attitude, a discovery she hopes to pass onto her students as she guides them step by step through the yoga practice. By teaching alignment and how to pay attention to what is going on in the body and mind in each moment, Alex shows her students how to bring greater awareness to everything they do both on and off the mat.
