All Shook Up: Yoga & Functional Anatomy of the Pelvis

Fresh off our Happy Hips workshops, we're offering a special one-day workshop in beautiful Nelson, New Zealand! This session will explore an uncommonly powerful part of our anatomy that's commonly quite misunderstood - the pelvis!

Proper positioning of the pelvis is fundamental to many yoga postures but can be tricky to achieve. With an understanding of how the pelvis works, however, you can learn to set yourself up with a good foundation that will inform almost every move you make.

In this workshop, we will:

  • discuss the functional anatomy of the pelvis;
  • go through the underlying alignment theory to get us into the best positions for optimal pelvic alignment; and
  • dive into an amazing, in-depth study of several common postures that depend on proper pelvic alignment. 

If you're a teacher, you'll learn how to observe and identify where your students would benefit from improved pelvic alignment - and develop the skills to safely get them there. And if you're a student, you'll get heaps of tips to take with you to both your regular classes and your home practice.

Where: The Life Centre, 9 Towai Street, Stoke, Nelson; ph: 03 547 8468.

When: 3 March, 10 am to 3 pm.

How Much: $65 cash or Internet Banking (contact us for bank details).

What: All Shook Up: Yoga & Functional Anatomy of the Pelvis!

Who: Jenifer Parker will be leading this workshop - that's me! I've been teaching yoga for 16 years now, love teaching yoga and currently am learning how to fail at parkour and roller derby.
