Spine, Hips and Shoulders – a workshop series at Atmajyoti yoga with Sara Ström
Deepen your yoga practice through principles of anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics. The focus will be on expanding your knowledge and understanding of your own body in motion as well as technical skills and progressions based on your individual prerequisites. We will meet three Fridays during the spring . You can sign for a single class or all three.
The workshopserie will be at our studio at Norrtullsgatan 20.
You should have a regular yoga practice. It doesn’t matter if you have previous knowledge in anatomy, physiology, or biomechanics.
We’ll go over
- Anatomy, Physiology, and Biomechanics of the spine, hips, and shoulders
- Mobility and creating health joints and bodily structures
- Practical application to yoga asana
The focus during this workshop will be on the physical practice and not the theory.
Welcome to an explorative and proactive approach to yoga asana practice.
Friday April 20th, 17:00-19:30
There’s no holy grail awaiting at the end of a deeper ‘hip opening’. In yoga practice the hips is a topic that easily gets mystified and mistreated. Let’s talk ‘real talk’ when it comes to our hips in yoga practice and how we can serve this strong part of our bodies that holds great potential.
Friday May 18th, 17:00-19:30
The shoulders are well used and misused in yoga practice. It’s also an area that holds great potential. Let’s dive deeper into how you can discover and explore your own potential. We’ll have a look at the anatomy, biomechanics, and neuromechanics of the shoulder and how we can bring that knowledge into actual practice. Both on the yoga mat and outside of it.
All workshops are held at Atmajyoti Yoga, Norrtullsgatan 20.
About Sara Ström
The body is an interesting thing. My view on it is holistic, I see it as one unit. My teaching is about understanding the body and its movements through the studies and practice of yoga, anatomy, and kinesiology. I believe physical practice should be individually tailored to the person and the body that performs it, not the other way around. The aim is to enjoy the body that we live with every day. I want my classes and workshops to be a place where body and spirit are nourished and strengthened, and I hope to inspire through the joy of movement.
For the last 10 years I have been working with yoga and movement training, most recently as one of the head teachers at the yoga teacher trainings at The Nordic Yoga Institute. I’m also part of team Yogobe where I teach online classes and contribute with content on related topics. As a yoga teacher my greatest joy is leading teacher trainings, courses, and workshops.
As you might have guessed already, I’m kind of a nerd when it comes to health education. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Public Health from Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm and I’m currently studying a Master’s degree in Biomechanics and Physiology at The Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences. I’ve also studied movement analysis and kinesiology at an advanced university level, most currently at Karolinska Institutet.
