Dec 09, 2013 05:44PM
Have you ever wondered what is happening to your body as you do yoga postures? Do you know when to modify a pose so that your body is safe? Come to Yoga Central on Saturday, December 14 from 1 to 3:30 pm for a user-friendly, entertaining approach to anatomy.

A deeper understanding of human anatomy can immediately optimize your practice, help break through blockages and help you avoid injuries. Physical therapist Frank Previte will use a skeletal model to teach how the shapes of bones and joints determine function and movement. He will discuss the importance of axial alignment as it relates to movement, managing current musculo-skeletal health and wellness. Specific exercises to improve sitting, standing and lying postures will be demonstrated and practiced. Additionally, students will learn how to avoid and manage common musculo-skeletal conditions such as sciatica, herniated discs, stenosis, shoulder impingement syndrome, tendinitis and bursitis.

Discovering structural details of each region will help yoga practitioners improve their understanding of human movement as it relates to safely performing and teaching postures and exercise principles.

This class is designed to be accessible and useful to practitioner and teacher alike. It is $60, $55 if you register by December 7. Please preregister and pay at registration. There is a 48 hour cancellation policy. CEUs are available.
