The psoas and supporting hip flexors are major players in yoga.  When out of balance in strength and/or flexibility the posoas and friends can contribute to poor posture, low back pain and a limited yoga practice.  In this workshop, we will explore simple anatomy focused on the psoas/hip flexors as well as yoga poses that both strengthen and lengthen the psoas.  Understanding these important muscles and their functions will help you get the most out of your practice on the mat and in your everyday movement.

Knee Alignment Workshop for Yoga Teachers with Rachel Lundberg Brodway location

10:00am - 12:00pm 
$25 for workshop
EHY Broadway - 2122 S. Broadway Ave


As a yoga teacher, understanding proper knee alignment is paramount. We ask a lot of our knees in yoga and if we aren’t aware of common knee misalignment pitfalls, then they can get damaged over time. In this workshop we will go over simple anatomy of the knee and surrounding muscles and bones. We will explore poses where knee alignment is often overlooked and learn how to recognize misalignment and correct it.
