One of the great paradoxes of asana practice, is that some students come to class to alleviate the same musculoskeletal conditions that might be exacerbated in another student. A single pose can have a protective or therapeutic effect in some while aggravating symptoms in another. The more information on pathology, adaptation, recovery, pain science, and trauma sensitivity a teacher has, the better equipped they are to manage the responsibility of working with a vast variety of bodies and their unique circumstances.

In this workshop you’ll unpack the definition of injury, learn about soft tissue capacity, and examine recent advances in pain science so you are empowered to teach group classes to a diverse population. Following an extensive lecture on Friday, Saturday’s asana intensive will immediately apply those principles in real bodies in real time. Through masterful prop arrangement in both active and restorative poses, you will learn to address common musculoskeletal aches and pains to keep your students safe and excited to practice yoga. You will learn to:
• Expand your understanding of common "complaints" (shoulder and hip issues, back pain, tendinopathies, hypermobility, etc.)
• Customize cues to promote adaptation and change
• See individual variations as an opportunity, not a complication
• Utilize empowering language to incite confidence in your students
• Sequence to support the injury prevention/recovery continuum
