The Flexy Bunch: Mastering Hypermobility

Dr. Jen Bambrough

September 24, 2023 Sunday  3:00-5:00pm 

Join us for an enlightening session as we delve into the world of hypermobility, a condition where joints have a greater range of motion than usual. This can lead to increased flexibility but poses challenges in maintaining stability and preventing injuries. Jenn Bambraugh, DPT will guide participants through a comprehensive understanding of hypermobility, its potential causes, and its impact on the musculoskeletal system.

Key topics included will be: defining hypermobility and what differentiates it from regular flexibility; signs and symptoms of hypermobility; learning the potential risks; and discovering how proper alignment and engagement can help stabilize the joints and reduce the risks of injury. Yoga Alliance CEUs can be earned at this event.

Your Pelvic Floor - What it is and how to Strengthen it

Monika Patel

Dec 3, 2023, Sunday at 3:00-5:30 PM EST

Do you suffer from Low Back Pain? How often do you have to visit "that darn bathroom?" Do you struggle with standing up straight? Do you find balance a challenge? In this workshop, Monika Patel, DPT, of Hitchcock Family Medicine, a local expert in Transverse Abdominal and Pelvic Floor strengthening will help you discover the connection between your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles and how they contribute to your overall health and well being.

When we are able to locate, engage, strengthen, and utilize our Abdominal and Pelvic Floor muscles, a number of health benefits follow. With proper engagement of these super important and often never discussed muscles, you'll find fast improvement in areas such as increased balance, improved posture, and even a decrease in back pain. In addition, by working with these muscles, we can experience other health and practice benefits such as less problems with incontinence, and even an easier time “flying” in your arm balances!

This workshop will include an experiential lecture where you identify and then experience the muscles in action with simple movements that are both yoga-based and real life functional movement-based, all of which are designed specifically to help you incorporate these new muscles into your practice and daily life.
The cost is $35.
This class is good for 2.5 CEHs with Yoga Alliance and Current Teacher Trainees are encouraged to attend!
