Hypermobility & Yoga: a workshop for teacher and bodyworkers and dancers and circus people and theatre folks -- anyone who works with people and movement!

No teacher wants students to leave class in pain, & sometimes they do. 

In this workshop, you will learn more about how to help our students stay safe and comfortable, and learn how to lead them in practices that are sustainable long-term.

Learn how to recognize the signs of hypermobility, some of the causes, & how to keep students safer. Workshop includes common, subtle, and sneaky ways hypermobility shows up in yoga practices, how to offer modifications and cues that resonate to your hypermobile students, and discussion of the frequent intersection of yoga, hypermobility, anxiety, proprioception, and interoception. 

Your students will thank you!

Especially welcome: teachers who haven’t heard about hypermobility and may be somewhat skeptical. We look forward to lots of questions!
