Please join us November 15th (toDay!) at 02:30 PM EST via ZubiaLive!

This live broadcast, ‘Practicing Yoga Safely with Joint Hypermobility’ can be viewed on ZubiaLive using your desktop by going to www.zubialive.com.To register for this live seminar, go to – http://web.zubialive.com/signup or through the easy iPhone App (not currently available on Android devices). Link to App on iTunes – https://12vn.app.link/BC3MUyyRzH. iPhone users can also interact with the host in real-time. Live broadcasts via Zubia can be public or private — options I was looking for.

Today’s broadcast is an impromptu test to try the Zubia Platform. The plan is to keep things simple, see how a live broadcasting via Zubia works for our needs and share a few helpful tips. This will be a simple and short broadcast, discussing tips for practicing yoga safely with hypermobility and some general medical info on hypermobility related disorders, such as EDS & HSD. During the broadcast, you will be able to post questions if using the iPhone App, but not if viewing via computer. That options will be fixed next week. Also, if you are using the App, please make sure that you have downloaded the latest app update.

Description of workshop broadcast:

“Practicing Yoga Safely for Hypermobility will discuss proper positioning to help protect the joints and connective tissues from preventable damage, such as microtears in the tendons & ligaments, as a result of unknowingly hyperextending and overstretching. We will demonstrate some of the most common yoga poses that are prone to hyperextension, and go through proper positioning and alignment for yogis with “loose joints.” We will also discuss the importance of shifting from the traditional yoga practice mindset and “intentions” often shared by non-hypermobile yogis, and honing a practice philosophy that may initially feel quite opposite from the guidance and instruction provided by the mainstream yoga culture. This intuitive, yet unconventional approach to practicing (or teaching) yoga, helps prevent hyperextension and overstretching, facilitates strength & stability of the joints, and allows for an overall safer, injury-avoiding way to practice.”
