Hip Module (60hrs)

May 13-20, 2017 | Càdiz, Spain

In May we will travel to the Suryalila Retreat Center in Cádiz, Spain to host a Yoga Medicine advanced teacher training with an in-depth study of the HIP: ANATOMY, DYSFUNCTION & TREATMENT. Our weeklong teacher trainings modules include 7 nights room and 3 healthy meals each day – the perfect way to escape your daily distractions and immerse yourself in learning & deepening your teaching. The hip module is one of our core orthopedic modules, and highly recommended for our advanced teachers.

The module begins with a daily 2-hour morning practice & ends with a more restorative practice in the evening that ties into the course content to help you integrate the information. The teacher training lectures are held during the day with homework each evening to help you retain the information.

Hip: Anatomy, Dysfunction & Treatment (60hrs)

The module begins with a deeper look at the anatomy and biomechanics of the hip joint as a basis for learning to evaluate this area. This course examines the common injuries & dysfunction of the hip with an exploration of how to work with issues in this area. This course will teach you how to work with a variety of ailments and how to troubleshoot new ailments on your own. There will be case studies along the way to help you integrate the information. You will leave with a deeper understanding of this joint that you can immediately apply to your teaching and your practice by more thoroughly understanding the function of this joint.

This module counts as 60 hours towards your 500hr or 1000hr certification. You must be an approved 500/1000hr teacher in order to attend this training. If you would like to attend and have not yet been approved, please fill out our online application by clicking the button on this page.
