Hip, knee and lower limb biomechanics

2022 dates to be advised

Constant burning bum... diagnosis piriformis syndrome or hip bursitis - making yoga classes more pain then pleasure?

These are common complaints if you've had a back issue in the past and are particularly popular with woman due to our unique anatomy - broader hips and child bearing pelvis. The usual poses that are practiced in normal yoga classes can make these problems worse rather than aid them. It is an area of the body where it helps to understand the anatomy in order to improve such conditions and obtain a balance in the muscles around the hip joint.

At the end of this workshop you will know the poses that are most helpful for your body, based upon a deep understanding of anatomy and biomechanics of the area. The workshop will be largely practical; and involve working together in small groups to observe and learn the landmarks of the body.

Shoulder Biomechanics and safe practice.

Shoulders complaining with Down Dog and Chaturanga? - this is the workshop for you. 2022 dates to be advised.

Over many years of practising and teaching yoga I've found the shoulder joint often neglected and have treated and counselled many folk around recovery of often persisting shoulder pain. The shoulder is a flexible joint often uncomfortably bound by tight and dysfunctional overlying muscles. This makes it vulnerable to stress and slow to recover with the strain that many yoga postures impose.  It is hard to manage shoulder pain with simple technical adjustment. Having a little knowledge about the anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder is essential to prevent and to recover from injuries.

This workshop will be largely practical; we will identify landmarks to assess mobility and strength around the shoulder joint complex and neck. We will apply this understanding to wisely choose poses to address findings  and explore modifications and technical refinements suitable to the individual.
