Therapeutic Assessment and Applied Therapeutic Skills - Part 2 Focus: Wrist, Shoulder, Neck Issues Saturday June 17, 2-5pm In this 3 hour workshop ( a perfect development from the Hands On Part 1, 2 and Therapeutics Part 1 workshop), we will dive into Refined Therapeutic “assessment” specifically for the upper body issues . This workshop is perfect for teachers desiring to become more skillful in private yoga sessions or looking to sharpen their eye for their public classes. Assessment is a skill that takes patience and practice. We will look at various bodies to understand various patterns to better (i.e. over-developed traps/ under developed rhomboids, tight front torso and pecs/ back body weak, pranic/ breath body underused, etc). Students will be given an assessment form to practice and to see the relationship between lower/ upper body, front body/ back body, lower leg/ hip, shoulder/ neck with different bodies. As teachers looking to go to the next level, we need tools and specific exercises to help those common patterns. This is where our applied anatomy becomes “applied”. How do we help our private student with wrist, shoulder, neck pain? How do we offer therapeutic options for those inside of our public open class? These situations can be stressful and without knowledge, we can feel frustrated. While yoga teachers are not doctors, and shouldn’t be regarded as such, we can help in simple ways to bring more space, and anatomical stability. Learn specific anatomical guidelines for aligning the shoulder girdle, back body muscles, and releasing of neck tension and prana/ breath so that our students may improve their practice and lead to greater health and well being.
