Yoga for the Lower Body – Foundation for Life: A Workshop with Stefanie Zimmermann Castson
The alignment and activation of our lower body determines the foundation for our spine. With focus on our feet, knees, and hips we look at the impact on our lower spine and how to avoid common (yoga) injuries.
This workshop is the 3th part of the series „spine, upper & lower body“.We will learn how to use our practice of yoga as a training to align and strengthen the lower body in a way where it can be a strong pillar for our low back and a great solid foundation for our life.
In the theoretical part (about 30 minutes) we will learn more about the anatomy of the lower body through explanations on the skeleton.
In the subsequent physical practice, we learn more about alignment, the correct engagement of muscles and injury prevention in the area of the lower body and spine within common Yoga poses. We strengthen, open tight structures and learn what you can do to avoid pain and injury.
