May 2, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - May 16, 2018 @ 9:00 pm
Three session series: Wednesday May 2, 9 and 16 from 7:30 – 9 pm
Learn to alleviate knee pain! Each year, 11 million Americans complain to their doctors about knee-pain. And, orthopedic surgeons are said to operate more often on the knees than on any other body part. Yoga can be an excellent solution to address many knee issues – and help stop them from turning into complicated problems.
Practicing certain poses can increase stabilization in the leg muscles, helping you to improve your knee and leg health. Yet, certain knee pains may be keeping you from participating fully in a regular yoga class. We will address all these issues in this course. In this workshop, you will learn how to manage your knee problems so that you can take general yoga classes and improve your wellbeing.
This class is appropriate for students with some yoga experience, teachers and teachers-in-training.
$68 for the series of three classes
We recommend you register early. Space is limited.
