"Yoga is not to be performed, it is to be lived." Aadil Palkhivala, Purna Yoga Founder
In this course, we will cover the most common yoga injuries and the reasons why they happen. We will also go through each injury, understanding the anatomy and learning specific techniques to help promote healing. You will also learn proper ways of practicing postures so that you can prevent these injuries from reoccuring. You will feel more confident as a teacher and practitioner that you are doing what is best for your body and your students' bodies too.
Hi, I’m Rachel Krentzman, physical therapist and yoga therapist.
I designed this course for teacher trainees or serious yoga practitioners, so that they understand how to practice safely for each and every body. With some simple knowledge you can prevent and heal from injuries and continue practicing yoga for life!
I herniated a disc while practicing yoga and then learned how to heal using yoga too. I have been working with patients for over 25 years in the field of orthopedics and neurology and have seen firsthand the power of yoga for well being and transformation.
