Yoga Anatomy for Enhancing Knee Alignment and Integrity
Description: Join us for this engaging workshop that will examine yoga anatomy concepts that promote better alignment for stronger knee placement and reduced forces in standing yoga postures. We will discuss multiple topics on bringing functionality and harmony to the knees including:
*the importance of knee position in classic poses like Warrior 2 with discussions on Q-angle, knee cap distress, and individuals who are more prone to misalignment
*the mechanics of knee flexion depth, squats and the use of ‘center line of gravity’ to reduce stress forces in the knees
*the concept of ‘locking the knees’ and discussion on why we should retain ‘buoyancy’ and engagement
This workshop will offer ample time for practical applications and is ideal for students and teachers looking to strengthen their awareness and practice skills. This workshop is eligible for 2 hours CEU with Yoga Alliance.
