Yoga For Hip & Knee Replacements

For yoga therapists, instructors, and practitioners at all levels, medical professionals and people preparing for or recovering from a hip or knee replacement. No yoga experience necessary:

 If a hip or knee replacement is in your future, learn how you can not only postpone the inevitable, but also how to prepare your body for a speedy recovery. Medical yoga therapist Terry Roth Schaff and yoga teacher Karen Abramson will teach you a series of safe, easy to practice yoga poses to relieve hip and knee discomfort and to strengthen the muscles surrounding these joints.

Dr. Allen Wilkins will offer valuable insights and information to help you understand when it’s time for surgery, how long you can postpone it, whether you have options other than surgery, and how yoga can help.

 In this program, you:

 •   Learn specific yoga postures & sequences to keep your knees & hips healthy

•    Improve your posture & gait

•    Discover ways to build back muscle strength & joint mobility pre and post-op.

Return home with tools and practices to postpone surgery as long as possible, prepare your body for replacement surgery, and ways to aid in the healing process. This workshop is recognized by the International Association of Yoga Therapists and by Yoga Alliance. It gives yoga therapists and yoga teachers 8-hours of continuing education credits.
