Do you have tight hips and hamstrings? Do you consider yourself inflexible? Have you been trying to get into a split with no success?
Then this workshop is for you!
In this Inflexible Yogis workshop we will focus in targeting the muscles that will allow more flexibility for splits. Prior knowledge for splits is not required and being able to do a split is the not required. If you already have a split in your yoga practice, you will learn how to protect your joints and ligaments while in your split. If you are hypermobile, you will have find tips in how to build strength to reduce injury.
We will give you the tools to develop a practice in prepping for splits and infuse it into your own practice, whether you can split or not.
We will have a 90 min vinyasa flow and break it up into different modules to understand:
*Counter muscle groups.
*Learn the difference about Active and Passive stretching.
*Add PNF stretching into your asana positions.
(Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is an advanced form of flexibility training, which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle group being targeted. PNF stretching is one of the most effective forms of stretching for improving flexibility and increasing range of motion.)
*Create Elasticity, Plasticity, and Viscoelasticity in your Myofascial system.
Class taught in English.
