August 16: Kinesiology in Yoga: Core Strength for Athletes
This session will address the fundamental musculoskeletal issues that influence strength and range of motion for athletes. Instead of strengthening muscles that are already strong, we will focus on strengthening muscles that are underactivated (weak or not fully functional), thereby creating improved proprioception, stability, strength, suppleness, and movement patterns.
Class is limited to 6 students
Aug 16 Core Strength for Athletes
These sessions are accessible to individuals at all skill levels and of all body types. Basic yoga poses are taught as a foundation to all forms of physical activity by generating the internal actions of the bones and by stimulating under-activated parts of the body.
Hands-on feedback is tailored to the individual, focusing on creating integrity in movement patterns. It can be summarized as briefly as, “Where I push, you resist.” By bringing awareness to deactivated parts of the body, energy flows to that area. Being overly tight, overly mobile, or in pain are all manifestations of imbalance – they are treated using similar techniques, but with different focuses.
Paul Engelmann, M.S., L.Ac., fascinated by the nature of things and by what methods are most effective in personal transformation, teaches yoga and practices acupuncture as a means to help each person balance and develop their mind, body, and spirit. Each individual is their own ecosystem and they are treated according to their constitution. He has taught a specialized form of yoga for years, which for most people achieves immediate, tangible results. His website is www.paulengelmann.com
