The primary focus of this weekend module is: to review sports, occupational risks and injuries and how yoga can help in the assessment of risk, prevention of injury and alleviation of symptoms when injury occurs. We will review the top sports and work related injuries that a yoga therapist is likely to encounter in their practice. There will be practical exercises in evaluating clients and developing yoga protocols to improve function and return to sports or work.
Common sports and workplace related injuries that students will explore include:
- Ankle Sprains and Strains
- Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Back Pain
The full weekend intensive is designed for yoga teachers or students with a serious yoga practice and background. In an Open Sunday Workshop with the public, we will apply what we have learned and explore some of the essential elements of the weekend material.
