 I'm really excited to be co-hosting this workshop with the wonderful Wil Hesketh of Open Minded Fitness Group
It's all about what's helpful, less helpful and down right dangerous for our musculoskeletal system within the Yoga repertoire. We're not trying to tell anyone what to teach, we're simply sharing information based on functional anatomy and science with the aim of developing the physical practice of Yoga to be as helpful as possible. As a teacher you can expect to gain a deeper knowledge of functional anatomy and learn to teach safer with more confidence.
It will be fun, practical and with lots of hands-on! Bring your thoughts, questions and ideas,
