The Body Electric on the Mat: Local Businesses Collaborate to Bring the Science of Movement to a Safer Yoga Practice
Chicago, IL, September 25, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Wicker Park/Bucktown’s Eb & flow Yoga Studio and Lakeview’s Lakeshore Sports Physical Therapy are jointly offering a workshop on Sunday, September 28, 2013 that combines traditional yoga practice with biomechanics. Biomechanics can help anyone advance their practice safely, including instructors.
Biomechanics is the application of mechanics—or the science of how objects move in relation to other objects and forces—to studying biological organisms. The arms and legs become levers, the knees and elbows become bearing surfaces and articulations, the muscles become motors and springs, and the organs become power supplies. Biomechanics can help you to better understand the relationships among your organs, muscles, bones, and joints, and develop and apply safe techniques in positioning your bodies in your practice.
Chiropractor and yoga teacher Tova Sklar and orthopedic physical therapist Angela Wilson Penni of Lakeshore Sports Physical Therapy are both experts in biomechanics and kinesiology. Together, they will lead the September 28th workshop at Eb & flow Yoga Studio. Tova explains, “I have applied my understanding of the human body and movement as a physical therapist to my yoga practice. This understanding has helped me greatly advance my own practice. Since teaming up with Tova, we want to share what we’ve learned with others to advance their practice through the understanding of human biomechanic.”
The workshop takes place at Eb & flow Yoga Studio at 1834 North Avenue in Chicago’s Wicker Park/Bucktown neighborhood, Sunday, September 28th, from 1 to 3 PM. The event is free for Eb & flow members and $30 for non-members ($25 with advance registration at www.ebandflowyoga.com).
