Theory in Action: Mobility, Stability and Balance (Tejas Yoga – Chicago, IL)

  • September 8, 2018
    2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An asana practice requires balance between flexibility and strength, mobility and stability. Asana has large movements that are common to everyday function, and when key regions of the body move efficiently, both daily function and asana will improve. Regardless of one’s flexibility or stiffness, an asana practice can easily be progressed or regressed based on the limitations of the individual by taking advantage of common principles found in everyone.
This yoga workshop will focus on strategies to incorporate to improve mobility, stability, and balance, as well as how to regress or progress in any yoga position to fit the limitations of the individual.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Discuss self-assessment strategies to understand when and how to regress or progress based on your findings.
  • Implement strategies to simultaneously ‘tension & compress’ your body in order to find a deeper engagement and activation in an asana practice.
  • Comprehend the general guidelines to always follow when progressing an asana practice.
  • Understand strategies when returning to asana practice after an injury for key regions of the body including the neck, shoulder, low back, and knee.
