TEACHING METHODOLOGY: Injuries - Part I
In this webinar we will introduce one of the most challenging aspects of teaching (yin) yoga – injuries and the practice. In part I, we will break down the following…
- Teaching SAFE yin practice to your students to prevent injury
- Teaching SAFE yin practice to your students who already have an injury
- and if you should do so at all!
How do we safely and mindfully instruct our students with injuries? We will take time talking through basic guidelines for injuries in yoga classes including how to learn about your students injuries, the difference between an acute and chronic issue, and what kind of verbiage to use so you don’t put yourself into a position dealing with liability for furthering the injury. We will also take time breaking down injuries related to the practice of yin. How do we teach to hopefully prevent injury all together?
In part II of this webinar series, we will discuss several common injuries that students might have and how to help those students specifically.
