Assisting Judith Hanson Lasater at SF YJ Conference 2012

Tomorrow is Friday the 13th, a lucky day for me. After work, I’ll be on a bus and a plane heading to San Francisco, where I’ll assist Judith Hanson Lasater at the San Francisco Yoga Journal Conference.

Here are the sessions I’m assisting. If you’re at the conference and we pass by each other, please say hi. Or better yet, come take a class with Judith, you won’t regret it.

The Mysterious Sacroiliac Joint: Anatomy and Asana

Saturday, January 14 — 10:30am – 12:30pm
Therapeutic / Continue Your Education / Mixed Levels

Many yoga students suffer from sacroiliac pain, which interferes with forward bends and twists. We’ll study the anatomy and kinesiology of the joint, and then practice in a way that can prevent problems. **This class has been approved by American Council on Exercise (ACE) for 0.2 CECs.**

Restorative Yoga

Saturday, January 14 — 3:30pm – 5:30pm
Therapeutic / Mixed Levels

Explore the theory and the practice of restorative yoga.
Props are essential to this practice. Bring at least three blankets, an eye cover, a strap, and, if possible, a bolster. The more props, the more relaxation.

The Shoulder: How to Open, Strengthen, and Repair

Sunday, January 15 — 10:30am – 12:30pm
Therapeutic / Mixed Levels

We’ll learn the basic principles of the rotator cuff through a presentation of the anatomy and kinesiology of the shoulder. We’ll then focus on poses that open and strengthen the shoulder joint. **This class has been approved by American Council on Exercise (ACE) for 0.2 CECs.**
