What's

Julie Gudmestad, PT, has been active in Portland, Oregon as a yoga teacher and licensed physical therapist for over 30 years. She has integrated Western medical knowledge with yoga training into a unique teaching style, and has taught many workshops throughout the US, Canada and Europe. She is a certi ed Iyengar yoga teacher and is the former author of the Yoga Journal column, “Anatomy of a Yogi”.

Muscle imbalances around the hips, pelvis, and low back can cause and contribute to back pain and injuries. On the other hand, a well-balanced Yoga practice can help prevent back problems, and can bring relief to students who come to class seeking help with previous injuries.

In this class, we will study important muscle groups in this area, including the psoas and hamstrings, abdominals and erector spinae, and hip abductors and adductors. We will look at common imbalances (strong vs. weak and tight vs. exible) in these muscles and how they contribute to mis-alignments that set the stage for problems. en we’ll practice Yoga poses and sequences that correct imbalances, improve alignment, and relieve pain.
 

Note:

Prerequisite: Minimum 1 year yoga experience. ( These will be mixed level classes).

These will be active classes, and therefore are not recommended for people with severe problems or significantly limited mobility. One year of yoga experience is suggested. Because the workshop will build progressively from start to nish, we strongly advise joining the workshop at the beginning if at all possible.
