Yoga Deconstructed® Is a Dynamic Expansion of Traditional Asana

Saturday, October 16, 1:30-4pm: Creative Progressions for Dynamic Pelvic Stability
Pelvic stability is necessary for pain free movement during your yoga practice and activities of everyday life. Modern movement science is now finding that pelvic stability requires more than drawing the navel to the spine and engaging the transverse abdominis. While isolated strength training for the pelvis and core can be beneficial, you also need to practice connecting the upper and lower extremities to your pelvis in a coordinated and functional way to experience true stability and address SI joint dysfunction.
In this Yoga Deconstructed® workshop, you will learn preventative strategies as well as a vast array of dynamic and static exercises that will keep your SI Joint stable and strong. Whether you have sacroiliac dysfunction, or just want to keep the low back area safe during your yoga practice, this workshop is for you.
Sunday, October 17, 1:30-4pm: Rotation: Move More Like A Human & Less Like A Yoga Paper Doll
Discover how to build mobility without sacrificing stability using novel exercises that explore dynamic multi-directional movement in the transverse plane. This Yoga Deconstructed® workshop will teach you the foundational principles for adding load, improving strength, and enhancing coordination, so you can master new motor patterns in a slow, mindful way, and be better prepared to load in the transverse plane.
- Creating segmental rotation.
- Using rotation to improve balance and stability.
- Accessing rotation through cross body patterning (crawling and gait).
