Flexibility Vs Stability in Yoga - How Much Stretch is Too Much?

Sat 26 Oct (10am-4:30pm) & Sun 27 Oct 2019 (9am-3:30pm)

Yoga teachers around the world are becoming increasingly aware that not every student needs to stretch and that there is a limit to how much flexibility is healthy and beneficial!
 
Join senior yoga teacher and yoga therapist Flo Fenton on this weekend where we will learn how to recognize different types of hyper-mobility in ourselves and in our students.
 
How can we work to promote joint stability and reduce pain, and what practices and cues do we need to limit to ensure a safe and sustainable yoga practice?
 
Join yoga master Flo Fenton to discover answers to these questions and more on a fun, experiential weekend.
 
This workshop allows Yoga Australia members to accrue 5 CPD points per day.
