Supporting Injured Students: For Yoga Teachers with Dr Yogi

 April 14, 2019   10.30am - 5.30pm  with Andrew McGonigle “Dr Yogi”

As a teacher, it can often be challenging to know exactly how to support students who come to your yoga class with an injury. This workshop aims to give you the knowledge and confidence you need to be able to approach, support and empower students with common injuries.

The session will be a mixture of discussion, lecture, group work and practical demonstration covering:

  • the most common injuries and medical conditions that students present to class with
  • looking at basic guidelines for the best way to approach a student who has an injury
  • review the anatomy of the parts of the body that are most commonly injured
  • address how specific asana can be modified or supported with props depending on certain injuries
  • discuss simple techniques for helping students to strengthen and stabilise injured areas of their body

“I attended this workshop and thought it was one of the most useful, information-packed events I have beenon” Sian O, Yoga Teacher
