Yoga with Kerry

March Yoga News

Posted by Kerry Turner on Wednesday, March 5, 2014

Well hello there March!

March came in with some serious snowfall! One benefit of all this fresh snow is not only some fun powder skiing, but we can use the fresh snow to check out our foot alignment when walking. Go find some fresh snow, take a walk, turn around and check out what your feet are up to. Do they turn out, turn in, are you walking on the outside edges of your feet or falling into the inside edge. Also notice how long your stride is and maybe if one leg is taking a longer stride than the other. All this awesome self-awareness can show you a lot about your lower leg alignment which may be affecting your knees, hips, back, shoulders and neck!

Functional Alignment is a practical approach of applying proper alignment techniques into everyday movement, giving you more efficient and optimal movement and help you manage chronic pain. Combine this with the self-awareness and empowering practice of yoga in a progressive program.

I am currently offering a 12 week Functional Alignment course at Teck and will be beginning a group class at the KP Hall in April. Both programs are now full, however, I am looking into the future months and preparing for weekend intensive functional alignment programs. Stay tuned for more information on dates and locations.
