Welcome! We are beyond excited to have you join us for a learning experience that we have been passionate about for years. Throughout this module, we’ll dive into what mobility is, how it can be expressed, and how to train it most efficiently. We will explore the basic principles of neuroplasticity that form the foundation for mobility work and discuss how the science of the brain is integral to understanding the function of the body.
From there, we will look at applying the principles and specifics of mobility training to the ways in which we traditionally teach asana, and the particular challenges of introducing mobility training to students who are used to exploring and expressing movement in different ways.
This course will count toward 30hr of the YogaKoh 300hr YTT as well as 30hrs toward Continuing Education hours.
It’s no secret that the world of yoga is rapidly changing. Biomechanics are dispelling a number of beliefs yoga teachers have long had about postural alignment. And an increasing number of alignment cues are proving to be outdated.
You've probably been told at one point or another not to bend the knee past the ankle -- but why? Does it really injure the knee? Is there a way to bend the knee past the ankle that would prove not only safe, but beneficial?
In this 30-hour module you will learn how to break the rules of yoga alignment, liberate yourself from repetitive movement patterns, and uncover your body’s natural intelligence.
You’ll use a range of techniques and modalities to challenge your mobility, balance, strength, skill, and adaptability. You'll discover a greater potential, while increasing your embodied awareness.
There will be labs on cue refinement, using props to fortify your joints and enhance your practice, and exercises where you will integrate unconventional asana movements into your sequencing. You’ll even discover why bending the knee past the ankle is a great thing after all!
Your comfort zone will be challenged. You will experience how different movement patterns support a strong and stable asana practice. And by the end of it, you’ll understand how you — and your students — can move well.
