Yoga for Hypermobility

Yoga for Hypermobility
A workshop for yoga students and teachers
This workshop will focus on hypermobility as a common issue that many yoga students face. Hypermobility is rarely recognized as a condition that deserves special treatment and rehabilitation. Since most “bendy” yoga students are applauded for their flexibility and rarely guided to recognize it as a health issue, many will go on to overstretch and cause serious damage to their connective tissues. Connective tissue damage causes long-term impact to joint and skeletal stability as well as overstimulation and distress in the central nervous system. In this session we will cover the signs, symptoms and causes of hypermobility; how to recognize and respect limits in hypermobile bodies; strength training for hypermobility; and therapeutic reconditioning (rehab) for those who are suffering from joint and postural pain.
