BODY SHOP! INJURY CLINIC AND HEALING INTENSIVE
With Master Teacher Lois Nesbitt
November 11 -17, 2015
Bodies break down—yet yoga tells us they don’t have to! The right kind of yoga allows you to practice safely and live free of injuries and afflictions, as well as to care for your body off the mat. This training guides you deep into the body, engaging your anatomy, your yoga, your mind and your heart as the route to healing from the inside out—and preventing future harm!
We’ll map out key parts of the body and focus the common injuries and conditions in each area. Each day features:
- Lively yoga practice to wake up your body and your mind
- Review of the muscles and bones we use in yoga (and daily life!)
- Explanation of the most common injuries in every part of the body (shoulders, hips, knees, lower backs, wrists, necks, feet, ankles, and more!)
- Practical instruction in how to help heal and prevent injuries using hands-on adjustments as well as simple exercises and modified yoga poses that empower students to participate in their healing
Bring your injuries as well as your minds so we identify specific problems and restore balance throughout youf body. This deeply practical program will change the way you treat your body forever!
In addition to training teachers worldwide, Lois Nesbitt leads a weekly Injury Clinic in New York, where she has worked with everything from tight “typing shoulders” to students recovering from drastic events like earthquakes and the September 11 terrorist attack on New York City. She is widely recognized as an expert in working with injuries and helping others to heal.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
HANDS, WRISTS, ELBOWS, SHOULDERS, NECK, AND HEAD
Our upper bodies suffer from poor posture: slumping, driving, working on a computer, carrying babies, as well as tension. Add to this unskillful yoga practice—putting weight on the arms, neck, and head without understanding how it works—can cause further damage. Learn how to open up, stand tall, breathe freely, and heal injuries to shoulders and neck.
Our arms and hands are our physical links to the world around us, yet we often abuse them through poor habits and sloppy yoga. Recover full use of these powerful limbs and practice free from pain!
FEET, ANKLES, CALVES, KNEES, THIGHS, AND LOWER BACK
We rarely give our feet and knees much thought—until they cause us pain! Yet the feet are what supports us as we stand and move through the world. The knee mediates between the foot and the rest of the body, often taking the strain of misalignments from above and below. Yoga and sports also place specific challenges on knees, often causing unnecessary injuries.
The pelvis is the body’s center of gravity. It is also the crucial link between the legs and the torso, shaping how we move as well as our overall posture. Pain in the hips and lower backs is everywhere today, as more of us sit most of the day. Realigning the pelvis can release tight muscles, alleviate pain, and restore full range of movement. Why wait? Whatever your age, start today on the road to healthy hips!
