About this course

Hello everyone!  Welcome to Yoga and the Lower Extremity.  I hope you find this course deepens your understanding of gross anatomy and kinesiology of the lower extremity.  In addition, you should come away from this course with an effective understanding of common injuries or pathologies of the lower extremity and how they relate to yoga.  The asanas of hatha yoga are generally very good for injury prevention but some of the poses and the way they are taught are causing more harm than they are helping with balance and flexibility.  I hope you enjoy this course!  Brett
