Yoga for Hypermobility (Immersion Workshop)
Yoga for Hypermobility
Yoga for Hypermobility is somewhat of a misnomer, as those with hypermobility are often discouraged from practicing Yoga, due to the risk of injury it can pose.
However, as you’ll discover in this immersion workshop, certain types of Yoga – and ways of practicing – can help support individuals with hypermobility.
These students are often attracted to yoga because of their flexibility and ease in asana. However, they often don’t have the information needed to protect their bodies and can seriously injure themselves in practice.
To ensure safe classes for all students, Yoga teachers must become more aware of the prevalence of hypermobility in students, the tendency of people with it to be drawn to Yoga, and how they as instructors can foster safe practice for their students (and perhaps themselves).
The purpose of this immersion is to provide students with proper techniques and practices to facilitate proper alignment and movement for individuals who live with hypermobility. Students in this workshop will be better prepared to write sequences, provide good assists/adjustments, and helpful cues to ensure the strength and safety of class attendees.
The content of this workshop will be comprised of lecture/discussion/guided practice/peer teaching. This workshop will be taught by Leigh-Ann Renz. To learn more about her, click here.
