Nikki Yoga News: Assisting Judith Hanson Lasater at YJ Conference San Francisco 2011

Hi guys,

I have the privilege of assisting Judith Hanson Lasater at the Yoga Journal Conference in San Francisco this year. If you’re going to the conference, say hi. If you’ve never taken a class with Judith before, you gotta check her out!

Here are the courses Judith’s teaching, taken from the Conference Website:

The Shoulder: How to Open, Strengthen, and Repair

Saturday, January 15 — 3:30pm – 5:30pm
Therapeutic, Mixed Levels. Lecture and asana.

To understand this part of the body, we must learn about the four small actions that shape all of its movements in asana. We’ll begin with theory and end with an asana practice focusing on the shoulder. **This class has been approved by American Council on Exercise (ACE) for 0.2 CECs.**

What to bring: A mat, three blankets, an eye cover, a strap, a block, and if possible, a bolster.

The Mysterious Sacroiliac Joint

Sunday, January 16 — 10:30am – 12:30pm
Therapeutic, Mixed Levels. Discussion and asana practice.

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

Sunday, January 16 — 3:30pm – 5:30pm
Mixed Levels. Restorative yoga practice.

Explore the theory and the practice of restorative yoga. **This class has been approved by American Council on Exercise (ACE) for 0.2 CECs.**
What to bring: At least three blankets, an eye cover, a strap, and if possible, a bolster. The more props, the more relaxation.
