Hamstrings can be a common source of frustration for many yoga practitioners. In this workshop we will look at why the hamstrings are so important to a fulfilling yoga practice and explore tips and tricks for healthy hamstring stretches.
The hamstrings are intimately connected to the health of the lower back and pelvis. Many back injuries and lower back pain issues are directly related to the hamstrings.
We will explore specific actions in yoga postures using drills and props to lengthen the hamstrings and open the back of the knees without overworking the ligaments and joints and then how to apply these actions in both Standing Poses and Forward Folds
Open to all levels of practitioners, this workshop will particularly benefit those who feel tight hamstrings hamper their practice and those who are hyper-extended in the knees.
