Cultivating a Sustainable Core

  • Gaia Yoga 39 Washington Ave Richmond, CA 94801 (map)

What is the Core? It is much more than the abdominal muscles. Discover your physical and energetic center in this all-levels yoga workshop. We will review and discuss core anatomy, applied pranayama/breathing, and spinal alignment through the combined lenses of a yoga therapist, physical therapist, athletic trainer, and strength and conditioning specialist.

You will learn to prevent injury in yoga by combining physical therapy, sports medicine, and strength and conditioning principles through evidence-based lecture, options for gentle and vigorous movement, and self-inquiry. Beginners and experienced teachers/therapists alike are welcome. There will be an hour and a half of modified therapeutic core yoga postures followed by 90 minutes of lecture with plenty of movement breaks.

Offered by seasoned physical therapist and yogini, Liz Duncanson, MPT, ATC, CSCS, RYT-200, PYT, C-IAYT, (Licensed Physical Therapist, Certified Athletic Trainer, Strength and Conditioning Specialist, and Yoga Therapist) of Body Temple Physical Therapy in Oakland, California.

*Yoga Alliance Yoga Teachers receive 3 continuing education hours.
