Yoga teachers around the world are becoming increasingly aware that not every student needs to stretch-and that there is a limit to how much flexibility is healthy and beneficial! Join senior yoga teacher and yoga therapist Flo Fenton on this weekend, in which we will learn how to recognize different types of hyper-mobility in ourselves and in our students. How can we work to promote joint stability, and reduce pain-and what practices and cues do we need to limit to illicit safe and sustainable yoga practice?
