Join Ellie Clarke for an anatomically-focused deep dive into yoga student’s favorite hip and hamstring opening postures. We will explore the key muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the hip joint, along the legs, and the knee joint to stretch muscles without sacrificing integrity of the joints. Learn what to watch out for in terms of injury risk and how to modify popular poses for different ranges of motion and levels of tightness. Discover creative approaches to strengthen the muscles that are often neglected in traditional approaches to asana. Teachers will develop your skills on how to sequence hip and hamstring opening postures for beginner, intermediate, and advancing students. Students will learn how to develop a safe and intelligent personal practice.
This workshop will involve lecture, visual presentation and some asana practice. Please bring a pen and paper and wear clothing you can practice in comfortably.
