About This Event
As yoga teachers, an assumption we often hear from non-practitioners is that they are not “flexible enough” for yoga; in reality, placing too much emphasis on stretching may actually be harming our students in the long run. Join Yogi Aaron, creator of AYAMA (Applied Yoga Anatomy + Muscle Activation™️), as he disputes the flexibility myth and explains why we should place focus on activating and strengthening muscles instead. Come ready to gain a new perspective on stretching, flexibility, and yoga that will transform how you teach and practice.
In this workshop you will learn:
- How stretching disconnects the body and mind, weakens the muscles, and causes misalignment, instability, and chronic pain
- A popular yoga pose you may want to avoid teaching, and why
- A simple muscle activation practice for you and your students to instantly feel stronger and more stable in the body
