This in depth workshop will address the more common injuries we see in yoga classes.  The exploration of each injury will include anatomy, the involved physiological actions, safety precautions, and the modifications for asana.  Injuries will include plantar fasciitis, ankle/knee/back pain and instability, shoulder impingement and upper extremity nerve syndromes including tennis elbow and carpal tunnel.  You will learn therapeutic exercises that you can teach your students and manual adjustments for poses that relate to the injury.   The intention is to provide you with a deeper understanding and hands on skills to assist you in teaching public classes and private sessions.
