Description

This workshop focuses on your knees to function in a healthier fashion. The knee is the largest most challenged joint we have. It is situated between the two longest bones in the body, which creates large forces within the knee as we walk, run or jump. Healthy, well aligned knees, deal efficiently with this situation. However, incorrect alignment and lack of proper training can cause the knees to become painful as ligaments, joints and muscles are strained.

This workshop really helped me to understand the complexity of alignment from hips to toes. Lesley gave helpful visual cues and I appreciated her referencing the actual skeletal bones to visualize what's going on during movement.
