Yoga to Know Your Knees

with Anne-Marie Schultz  Saturday at 2pm

ARE CRANKY KNEES CRAMPING YOUR STYLE?
Knee pain is a common complaint that can happen at any age or stage in life. In this workshop, we will "get to know" our knees and how to stretch and strengthen the knee joint safely.

Often knee issues arise because we have not fully opened the hips and so we will look at the relationship between the hips and the knees.
We will explore the range of movement of the knees in a variety of seated and standing poses, as well as how to use simple techniques with ropes, belts, and blankets to create space in the knee joint. Expect a fun-filled educational two hour workshop. All levels welcome!
