Have you ever thought that you were “too tight and not very good” in yoga? Or conversely, are you super bendy and think that you’re an “advanced” yogi?
These are misconceptions and beliefs that are taught either directly or indirectly in modern asana today because of the limited understanding of functional anatomy and movement and the physiology of stretching.
Join Jody Rooney and Judy Minnisale of Geraldton Yoga Studio, and Alicia Cheung, for an informative, fun and heartwarming workshop to learn about the human form and what it means to embody and love your own anatomy.
This 4-hour workshop will include:
Functional Anatomy and Fascial Health
The Physiology of Stretching
What is MyoFascial Roll-n-Release
Differences Between Mobility and Flexibility
Yin Yoga explained
Yin Yoga practice
You will learn what it takes to increase both mobility and flexibility and discover that, in fact, you don’t have “tight hamstrings” at all. After lecture, discussion and a little lab time, we will end our workshop with a relaxing, restorative and deeply therapeutic Yin yoga class.
Dates: August 2 and 9, 2020
Location: Railway Health Hub, Geraldton, Western Australia
Time: 1-5 pm (please arrive 10-15 minutes early to register and set up)
Cost: $35 minimum donation
Both workshops are part of our Karma Yoga project, working to support and empower indigenous women and children as well as supporting the civil rights movement to eradicate systemic injustices and racism in governmental institutions in Australia.
