The knees can be challenging to stabilize, as they often suffer from torque or strain in the upper or lower leg. In this two-hour workshop, we will begin by strengthening the foot arches in order to support the knees. With the use of props, we will safely move to increase mobility in the knees and adjacent areas to develop greater physical vitality, stamina, and balance.
As we age, knees become precarious. If you are/were an athlete, if you were born with sensibility in the joints, if you have or had osteoarthritis, for example, your knees have been affected by time. Because the knees are in the center of the leg, they may often be affected by accidents or injuries.
The knee joint is sturdy but also vulnerable to stress and dysfunction. By practicing passive and active forms of movement, we will develop more strength, fluidity and vitality to the overall knee joint.
This workshop is open to all levels and will give you movements and exercises to practice regularly.
Props: Yoga blocks (2 if you have them; sturdy books can also be used); strap or belt (best is 8-10ft long); and a blanket or beach towel.
