Language in Yoga:
Fear, Safety and Science
An evidence-based workshop for yoga teachers about language and the ability of the body to adapt.
Is yoga dangerous? Is it okay to do backbends and forward folds repeatedly? Is your language as a teacher healing or harming?
In this three-hour workshop recorded live in March 2022, we explore:
The scientific evidence on yoga-related injuries
The potentially harmful effects of fear-based language
How to use reassuring language
The many benefits of yoga and exercise
How our bodies adapt to exercise
You will feel more confident as a yoga teacher and you will have the tools to use language that positively impacts your clients. The culmination of Matthew’s MSc dissertation, this CPD workshop cites more than 80 scientific papers to explore the topics of injury, safety, pain and biomechanics — all related to yoga.
