Deconstruct to Reconstruct: Personalize Your Yoga Practice to Prevent Injuries FILLING
Limited Capacity filling up

How do bodies move? Learn about how muscles work, release and stabilize to move the body and hold it in
position. How far should joints move? When is it not enough and when do they go too far? We will look at the
different variables involved in stability, mobility, range of motion and the postures that are taught in most yoga
classes today. We will debunk the concept of stretching and flexibility and rebuild those components in ways that are aligned with how the muscular and fascia systems work. Skeletal variations and differences will be discussed in order to set up postures in a way that is wise for each individual. We will look at poses through the lens of muscular activation, release, stability, and potential counter-productive sensations, creating a sensory experience in class that invites each student to use the poses and movements as a tool for personal learning, exploration and skillful choice making.
