Follow the Detour Workshop

For Movement Educators & Anatomy Enthusiasts

with guest teacher Cecily Milne

Saturday, May 23, 3-6pm

This 3-hour workshop with Cecily will introduce you to what students around the world have experienced
as a revolutionary approach to movement.
Together we’ll explore:
• The role of the nervous system and its role in a mobility-based practice
• The importance of proximal stability and how this concept applies to ALL movement practices – not just
yoga
• The blind spots we all have when it comes to building joint capacity and muscle activation, and how
these blind spots can be transformed into sources of new strength and potential
• Different methods for bringing robusticity into the practice—keeping our hamstrings strong even in
forward bends, our spines comfortable in backbends and our shoulders strong and resilient in inversions
When we move optimally, the benefits are felt not only in our yoga practice but in all of the things we do
on a daily basis. After this workshop, you’ll approach everything from arm balances to grocery carrying
with new awareness and appreciation for what our bodies are capable of.
