About the event

The spine is literally the backbone of the musculoskeletal system; understanding its functions and its vulnerabilities is crucial to developing a sound approach to yoga anatomy.This class will combine lecture, discussion and demonstration to help us identify and recognize the capabilities and limitations of the spine.

We will become familiar with the form and function of a healthy spine as well as to identify some common spinal imbalances. Applying this knowledge of spinal function, we will learn to assess imbalances and practice some safe ways to adjust the spine within a yoga class. Through this workshop you will learn the kinesiology and muscular anatomy of the spine. We will explore range of motion and explore yoga techniques to bring the spine into balance.
