Join Katie Brown and IYTA Asana lecturer Liz Kraefft for our next Lunch & Learn for a discussion and demonstration on how to safely avoid injuries in both your teaching and in your own practice.

This session will be live via Zoom from 1 – 2pm (AEST) on Monday 8th November

This 1 hour session will describe the most common yoga injuries, what poses are most likely to cause injury, and how to practice and teach them safely.

This subject is more relevant than ever as more of us are attending classes via zoom without a teacher physically present to observe and assist with safe posture and alignment.

We will cover a few key postures (listed below) and how to ensure you are practicing them safely.  We will also discuss helpful verbal cues and what to look out for, for those  that are teaching via zoom.

  • Janu Sirsasana (Head to Knee pose)
  • Ustrasana (Camel pose)
  • Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend)
  • Trikonasana (Triangle)
  • Virabhadrasana 2 (Warrior 2)

There will be time for discussion and Q&A.

This is a free event, please register through the website to receive the zoom link.

Non-members are welcome to attend!!
