Joanna and Julien will be collaborating together to present a series of workshops designed for yoga teachers and other related disciplines. In this workshop, we will introduce bio-mechanical principles and apply them directly into the yoga context.
Biomechanical concepts related to the neck and arms
Alignment of the bones from the hands, arms, shoulders, neck
Posture of the neck in relationship to thoracic spine
How the co-contraction of muscles can help create stability e.g. Hyperextension of elbows, instability of shoulder joint, etc.Julien will then guide us through a few simple postures so that we can discuss the application of the concepts presented into our practice and teaching. We will assess arm weight-bearing postures as well as those that have flexion, extension and rotation of the neck.
