SportsYoga.ie – Protect The Knees in Sport
Have you ever been told to lock your knees in a yoga class? As a Yoga Therapist, my advice to you is DO NOT LOCK your knees ever! This workshop is based on enforcing correct alignment of the knee and with the use of props, I will ensure the balance of strength and release with no sudden movements, planting, pivoting, and no deep squats. This workshop is a must for serious athletes who may have to pivot or turn suddenly in their game.
This workshop will focus on important factors related to correct knee alignment.
Correct alignment from the feet with weight evenly distributed across the entire foot
Engaging the center-line of the body reducing pressure on the joints
Warm up with hip openers- Lack of rotation in the hip can cause pain in the knee
Check for Hyper-extension of the knee
Use of props to build strength in the muscles supporting the knee cap
Sharpen your awareness of body signals to prevent injury
Date of workshop ; Tuesday 18th November
