This workshop will offer ways to prevent and rehabilitate physical injuries that commonly happen in the course of our daily lives and in our practices. You will gain a concrete understanding of the nature of the various tissues involved in injuries, the healing resources of the body-mind that responds to these injuries, and the early warning signs that could help us head them off. These insights and skills will greatly accelerate your yoga practice, your movement reeducation process, and your overall well-being.
