How Do You Stack Up?

Do you have some of the early risk factors for developing hip osteoarthritis? Or, if you already have hip osteoarthritis, do you have some of the issues that could cause it to develop faster?

Some risk factors for arthritis we can’t control, such as our age, previous injury, improper formation of the hip joint and excessive weight that puts strain on the joint.

There are many factors that we can control, however. In this 90-minute mentoring session, learn how you stack up on a series of preclinical factors that can predispose us to hip replacement. These include muscle imbalances, reduced range of motion, and poor alignment in yoga poses that cause excessive compressive forces in the joints.

Learn some simple self tests to see how you stack up and how to address some of the most common mobility issues that can contribute to hip deterioration.

You are doing a great service! I live in Mexico and your on-line events have been a terrific way for me to stay in touch with yoga colleagues and continue learning from teachers of the highest caliber.

Your website is a blessing to guide me deeper into my personal practice and my teaching practice.
I wanted to expand on my thank you. Yoga U Online has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I moved from a yoga mecca to a yoga desert. Instead of having my choice of teachers and styles and special workshops, I now have to travel an hour to take a class. The excellent teachers and interesting topics at Yoga U Online have kept me moving ahead in my practice. I am grateful for all the wonderful yoga you bring to me. Thank you.
