Under-engaged or dis-engaged body parts are not embodied and are not conscious. Client habitual disembodiment can manifest as strength imbalances and contribute to injuries, pain, joint degeneration and reduced athletic performance that yoga therapists see every day. These can represent the dark hidden aspects of ourselves. Through precise testing, these hidden aspects are revealed to allow the client to be more fully conscious. This course covers potential causes, compares individual muscle vs. whole-body evaluation strategies and introduces multiple measuring techniques. Emphasis is placed on the anatomy and techniques of manually testing individual muscles in order to assess and understand clients with precision. Corrective actions emphasize exercises using elastic resistance along with techniques for isolating movement, breath, and focused concentration to restore proper joint function and develop a fully embodied consciousness. Nutritional factors for strength development are introduced. This course focuses on muscles of the lower limb with anterior to posterior movements that are commonly involved in low back issues.
