Anatomy Course & Injury Prevention in Asanas

The pains which are yet to come can be and are to be avoided. -Sutra 2.16

Injuries are a big obstacle to maintaining a yoga practice. Injuries can happen any time, either on the yoga mat or just in our daily life. Any kind of injury can be discouraging to the average or even keen student. But when injuries happen as a result of the asana practice, well, this can be really very disheartening–possibly causing students to quit the practice all together. The best way to deal with injuries is to prevent them from happening in the first place.

Who is this course for? This three part course is for yoga teachers, and also students, interested in learning ways of modifying poses to prevent future injuries. Additionally, we will also learn ways to approach poses which can invite healing for currently injuries.

Anatomy

The anatomy portions of the classes will be taught by Crystal McCray, a Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Myoskeletal Therapist, and owner of Cincinnati Muscle Therapy.

Injury Prevention in Asana

The injury prevention portions of the classes will be taught by Aaron Fleming, Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (Intermediate Junior 3) and owner of College Hill Yoga.

These classes will be interactive. During the classes Crystal and Aaron will answer your personal questions pertaining to anatomy and safe asana modifications. For those who sign up for the full course, Aaron will be available between the classes to answer questions pertaining to modifications in your own asana practice or possibly your student’s practice.
