About the book:
Many people are drawn to yoga asana for stress reduction and greater flexibility. However, the average person is not well prepared to practice many of the traditional poses, because they spend most of their time at a desk.
Additionally, many people who are hypermobile are drawn to yoga, because it feels natural to them. However, this population will often lack the stability and strength required to support their joints at end ranges of motion, which makes them susceptible to overuse injuries.
This book details how I create the experience of yoga in a class, while integrating outside modalities and up to date exercise science. This allows students to get the benefits of yoga while also becoming better prepared for the demands of everyday life and yoga asana.
This book teaches:
- How to help students move better and reduce their risk of injury within the scope of yoga, Pilates or any other movement modality.
- Regressions and progressions for human movement and yoga asana to fit the unique needs of the student.
- Critical thinking skills to help students safely transition from physical therapy to group classes.
- Strategies to introduce variability and neuromuscular re-education that help facilitate tissue resiliency, neuroplasticity, and new motor patterns.
- How to apply a skills-based approach, instead of a lineage-based approach
- Modern movement applications, including somatics, sensory feedback methods, and preparatory exercise.
- How to deconstruct and expand yoga asana beyond static, two-dimensional shapes to reduce the risk of hypermobility and repetitive stress injuries.
