Do your knees ache after walking, running, or doing yoga? Do you hyperextend or “lock” your knees (press the knee cap backwards to straighten the leg)? Are you recovering from a knee injury or knee surgery? Do you have arthritis in the knee? Do you wonder how to use the knees more effectively in yoga poses?
If you answered yes to any of these, then come explore how to more effectively use your knees in a supportive way.
The knee, a complex joint that is the largest in the body, depends on strong muscles for support. Per the Mayo Clinic. “A lack of strength and flexibility are among the leading causes of knee injuries.”
In this workshop, we will explore ways to better align the knee, strengthen the muscles of the upper and lower leg, use the muscles of the foot to support the knee, and balance the body weight more effectively. Includes a handout of poses and approaches covered.
