Julie Gudmestad returns to London to share more of her knowledge on the therapeutic applications of yoga. As a yoga teacher and physical therapist with 40 years of experience, she has devoted her professional life to integrating her physical therapist’s knowledge of the body, and how it is injured, with the healing powers of yoga.

This workshop will focus on using yoga poses to rebuild strength and flexibility for students who are returning to yoga after injury, illness or other cause of deconditioning. While some previous study of anatomy is strongly suggested, these five days will focus on asana practice and sequencing, rather than in-depth anatomy study.

We will start with simple movements which are appropriate for deconditioned students, as is usually the case after an injury recovery period. Then we’ll sequentially build to more challenging poses. During the practice, we will work to train your eyes to see structural misalignments and areas of vulnerability in the poses. As you practice the poses, you’ll learn how to stabilize weak areas, and improve the mobility of stiff, guarded areas, with the goal of restoring normal, pain-free movement and a strong yoga practice.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Foot and knee alignment and stabilization in standing and sitting poses
  • Restoring normal hip mobility
  • In-depth work with the pelvis as the foundation of the spine
  • Strengthening essential posture support muscles
  • Work with the scapula as the foundation of the arm and shoulder
  • Restoring normal shoulder mobility
  • Restoring normal neck movement and alignment, with safety applications for yoga poses

Pre-requisites: Some previous study of anatomy.

Because this workshop will be active, it is not appropriate for students with acute injuries or conditions that severely limit mobility.

_Please note that this workshop counts towards elective hours on the Yoga Therapy Diploma
