Low and Slow: Stabilization Principles & Gentle Practices for Accessible Asana

WORKSHOP with special guest Robin Rothenberg

Safe and informed asana practice requires careful attention to cuing and the cultivation of interoceptive awareness within the student. In this workshop, Robin will guide teachers on how to slow down practice and take students into an educational experience of functional movement, utilizing adaptive asana coordinated with breath.

This focused and mindful process deepens practice for all levels of practitioners, as it allows time for internal assessment, assimilation, and refinement. It also uniquely builds confidence in students with limited ROM or who are working through areas of chronic pain and need practices that stabilize and strengthen without creating joint strain. Robin brings her expertise, accrued over 30 years of working as a yoga therapist and training teachers in the art of adaptation, to share with the SYA community.
