Yoga And Your Knees
In this workshop, we will explore the knee joint, safety considerations in yoga and techniques on how to heal from knee pain and injury.
Pain in the knees is often a result of decreased strength and an imbalance of tight muscles around the hips, pelvis and feet. In this workshop, we will explore the use of alignment principles in standing and seated postures to help create a balance of flexibility and strength in this vulnerable joint. We will cover common mistakes that can put your knees at risk in your yoga practice and modifications that can help protect and even promote healing in sensitive knees. You will leave with knowledge on how a mindful yoga practice can make your knees (and the rest of you) very happy and healthy!

The Joy Of twists
An exploration of twists in yoga practice focusing on safety for the lower back and increasing mobility where you need it most.
Twists have many benefits in yoga practice including increasing spinal mobility, improving digestion and increasing energy and vitality. Twists can also help regenerate and re hydrate the discs when practiced correctly. In this workshop, we will look at the common reasons that twists can hurt your lower back and sacroiliac joint and how you can focus on opening tight areas and stabilize weak ones so that you get the most benefit from your practice.
