Hands, elbows and shoulders - Part 1

  • KC Yoga Center - City Market 104 East 5th Street Kansas City, MO, 64106 United States (map)

In the third of the Iyengar-influenced modules, we will explore the anatomy and biomechanics of the hands, elbows and shoulders. Because of the complexity of movements covered, it is important that you study the books and articles before you attend. All participants will learn how to assess and troubleshoot problem areas with private clients and students in a classroom situation. This is the most important module for those who teach Ashtanga and vinyasa classes and is a prerequisite class for the Neck and Comprehensive Evaluation Module. 

The Great Yoga Wall will be used, as well as various Iyengar props to help the body find balance and alignment. All participants will learn how to work with someone in a private session, with or without a wall, as well as techniques to implement in a classroom. 

This module will be taught at KC Yoga Center - City Market, beginning Friday evening, two sessions on Saturday, and one on Sunday morning. 

The early bird tuition for this module is $250 before May 1, $300 thereafter.
