"Wow! A fabulously "painful" (pun intended😘) learning curve! As yoga teachers we continue to grow, learn & evolve. Though I am not a healing professional, many of our students have questions about their aches, pains & limitations in their practice, to which I want to answer & assist, by being better equipped w/ knowledge & understanding. In Karen Claffey's workshop with her many years of experience, professionally & skillfully provided us the tools to begin to explore our students challenges in their asanas. Mal-alignment, biomechanics of muscle function, muscle dysfunction & how muscular imbalances contribute to a host of problems/injuries were addressed. So much more to learn! Karen has opened the door! And after this weekend, I want to step into that room! I am passionate about creating an environment where yogis of all ages feel welcomed, that they want to come to their mats and practice safely and of course always have fun😘😘"
