SMART Series, April 2017 - Bouyant Pelvis

SMART SERIES: THE BUOYANT PELVIS

How to Maintain Muscular and Structural Integrity of the Pelvis in Yoga – Presented by Tammie Bigley, MSPT and Angela Sullivan, CYI

SATURDAY APRIL 8TH 10:00am – 5:00pm at Ascent Physical Therapy 2350 Carson St. #4, Carson City, NV 89701

A balanced yogic body begins with well executed movements performed with great ease and care. But what is “balanced”? Many yoga instructors are unaware of normal range and function of critical junctures of the body, most particularly the pelvis.

In the practice of yoga, every asana (posture) has its root in the pelvic girdle. Any misalignment of the pelvis creates an imbalance, and a repeated misalignment elevates the risk for injury.

The purpose of this workshop is to highlight what represents normal mechanics of the pelvis and its application to a yoga practice. How to truly practice ahimsa (non-harming) and injury proof your student’s practice.

OBJECTIVES:

  1. Understanding the basic biomechanics and anatomy of the pelvis and surrounding region.
  2. Recognizing the symptoms of sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
  3. Practical application of sound biomechanics in asana to prevent pelvic girdle injuries.

SPACE IS LIMITED – Register for Buoyant Pelvis, April 2017

COST: $100 Wellness Members | $125 per class

SATURDAY MAY 6TH 10:00am – 5:00pm at Ascent Physical Therapy 2350 Carson St. #4, Carson City, NV 89701

A balanced yogic body begins with well executed movements performed with great ease and care.
But what is “balanced”? Many yogis are unaware of the normal range and function of critical junctures of the body, particularly the shoulders.

In the practice of yoga, every asana (posture) integrates upper extremity motion. Any misalignment of the shoulder creates imbalance. A repeated misalignment elevates the risk for injury and degenerative changes to the joints.

The purpose of this workshop is to highlight what represents normal mechanics of the shoulders and its application to a yoga practice. How to truly practice ahimsa (non-harming) and injury-proof your practice.

OBJECTIVES:

  1. Understanding basic anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder and surrounding area.
  2. Defining normal range of motion for the shoulder and recognizing symptoms of shoulder ABUSE!
  3. Application of sound mechanics in asanas to prevent shoulder girdle injuries.
