In Reith, Tyrol, Austria


Further Education Course with Padma Julia Descroizilles, senior physiotherapist from England.

Practising yoga helps the body to maintain its complex balance, which boosts the capacity for self-healing. Asanas promote health by increasing the range of motion in the joints, keeping the body mobile. Asanas focus on strengthening and stretching the key muscles. This will also help to gradually improve faulty alignment.

 

Workshop topics

  • Current concepts of pain; what is it? what is safe?
  • What is cramp? What to do about it?
  • Anatomy of back and hips; basics of posture, how to look after your hips, how to sit better, what causes back pain?
  • Anatomy of the Asanas; how muscles are connected via anatomy trains/myofascial meridians
  • Stretching vs relative flexibility
  • Hypermobility in the yogi
  • Anatomy of shoulders and knees; anatomy of the joints, asana modification to prevent joint pain
