Leading students into healthy postural alignment has as much to do with what not to say as it does with what to say.
In this workshop, we’ll examine common verbal cues about the pelvis and shoulder girdle and their ripple effect over time should a student continue to practice them for months or years to come. While it may be an appropriate cue for them today, will it continue to be a healthy cue over time, or will it eventually lead to an imbalance and/or injury? Furthermore, how do you incorporate anatomical and biomechanical information in a group yoga class without overwhelming your students with language that they may not understand? Join Jason to explore the karma of the yoga cues you offer in class and learn alternative strategies and cues to preserve the health of the hips and shoulders.
