Yoga for Hips and Knees – Online
October 23, 2020 @ 8:00 am - October 25, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
with Loren M. Fishman, M.D., B.Phil. (Oxon.)
OCTOBER 23 – 25, 2020
In this online workshop, learn the anatomy of the hips and knees and the most common difficulties that befall them during our Yoga practices. Discover how to teach healing poses for conditions that affect each joint and the elements of proper alignment and ‘just right’ stretching to avoid injuring them in the first place.
People often look to Yoga as a means to alleviate pain. But knee and hip joint pain present a double challenge since they are frequently a source of movement limitations in Yoga practice. Therefore, it is difficult to practice the Yoga that can help! While Yoga can be helpful in alleviating hip and knee discomfort, it is crucial that you know how to address these parts of the body.
Since students come to the mat with different levels of pain and limitation, we will show you graded approaches with workarounds for any Yoga practice.
This online workshop, you will learn:
- Which poses help with hip and knee problems
- Poses that should be avoided for certain knee or hip conditions
- How to spot practices and pitfalls that endanger these joints in your students and clients
Some of the conditions we will cover for the hips: Femoracetabular-impingement (FAI), Labral Tear, and Hip Replacement.
Conditions we will focus on for the knees: meniscal, ligament and cruciate tears, and knee replacement.
Live sessions with Dr. Fishman on Friday at 7–9 pm, Saturday and Sunday at 9:30–11:30 am and 2:30–4:30 pm EDT.
In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talk with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.
You will have access to the video recordings for 6 months after the program ends.
