Continuing Education

Find Neutral in the Lower Body. Learn principles for proper architecture, stable pelvis, and free and open psoas, back, and natural breath. How we first assist our students in “finding neutral” will help them to open more deeply and be more stable in their postures. To begin, we will discuss and practice how to find, feel and see skeletal and muscular neutral. We will view where there may be obstruction and how to simply offer stabilizing assists to clear pathways and release muscle tension. In Part 1 of this 3 hour module, we will observe and practice therapeutic hands on adjustments for Standing Postures, Hip Openers, and Basic Backbends as they pertain to the lower body patterns. We will walk away understanding more clearly flexion and extension patterns as well as tilts and torques of the pelvis. Abhaya’s sensitive, skillful approach to touch has been proven by guiding many, many students into greater freedom and stability. Come and practice your hands on skills while becoming more knowledgeable about the anatomical connections between the lower body and upper body. Come and practice specific adjustments to clear lower back pain, hip tightness, and sacral instability. Become more skillful in private yoga sessions or for those teachers looking to refine their eyes and hands for group classes. Specific Goals: Practice sensitivity through observation and subtle touch See how the muscles, bones, and breath are in relationship to psoas and lower body structure Learn specific hands on to release pain and tension Learn specific hands on adjusts to assist in strength and stability for SI joint $65, $50 for alumni
