"Roll & Release for the Hips and Low Back: A Yoga Tune Up Workshop" 

2.0 CEUs

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Please join NHDHA for an interactive presentation by speaker

 Cathy Mook, RDH, NTP, RYT


Course Objectives:

As dental hygienists, our day is mostly spent sitting in static or sustained positions that are especially problematic for the low back and hips. Prolonged forward flexion and twisting of the torso can result in muscle imbalances, causing pain, tightness, and fatigue in the low back and hips. Yoga Tune Up® is a blend of yoga, breath work, and therapeutic self-massage techniques, using Roll Model® Method Therapy Balls and corrective exercise principles combined with various stretching modalities.  

In this workshop, you will learn rolling techniques for the low back and hips to increase blood flow to the area and release tension. We will review ergonomics and anatomy as it applies to patient and self care. Studies show a correlation between the hips and jaw, if one is misaligned or tight the other is as well. You will be able to provide techniques and a resource for TMD sufferers to gain relief. In addition, you will learn corrective exercises targeted for the hips, low back and jaw to improve flexibility, tension relief and range of motion.

Please wear form-fitting clothing and bring a closed-top water bottle, yoga mat, block, and strap. Cathy will have a few blocks and straps on hand, but not enough for every attendee. 

YTU Therapy Balls specified for use with the Hips & Low Back course are included with your registration!  You will use them during the course and take them home.  Please note: These therapy balls are NOT the same as those used in the Shoulders & Neck Yoga Tune Up course.
