Dr. Foster's knowledge and delivery are fantastic
I really appreciate Dr. Foster's explanation of anatomy. She speaks with clear, concise language that is approachable for the Non-MD yet is not belittling either. Her personal stories and experience are interwoven into the presentation; making for an enjoyable, approachable, and engaging course. The printable materials are very useful and each practice module is perfectly paired up with each lecture. As a long-time group fitness instructor (1997) I was so pleased to have the reinforcement that strengthening is so important as we seek flexibility and mobility in our hips. Dr. Foster will tie all of this together: whether a practitioner, a yoga teacher, or a group fitness professional you will gain insight and knowledge. I now teach yoga to an older population and hips are often a source of pain, tightness, and immobility. I was pleased to walk away with many useful tips and poses as well as some studies and explanations to back up what I present in class.
I am so grateful I found this course! Every single one of Dr. Ariele Foster content I was happy to enjoy so far is amazing and full of deep knowledge. But this one especially was a game changer, because I was one of those hypermobile yogis who has fallen into the trap of always wanting to stretch more into hip openers, because something felt tense there. Strengthening that area changed everything. Thank you so much, I can't say that often enough.
Hip Pain? More Stretching is Not the Answer
I was fortunate enough to attend Yoga for 3d Hip Stability live (via Zoom) in late 2020. I revisited it recently in the wake of a new, bothersome hip pain. Dr. Foster is a practicing physical therapist and a long time yoga teacher. This course is jam-packed with valuable information and insights from both disciplines. Be sure to check out the Bonus Material at the end of each Module for several more hours of content. It is a fantastic resource for yoga instructors who are wondering how and why to introduce strength building into their classes or for anyone who hopes to head off or alleviate hip pain.
Physical therapy with Dr. Ariele Foster got me moving again after a hip injury from at-home exercise classes at the start of the pandemic, so I didn’t hesitate to take this course. Her explanations, exercises, resources, and overall knowledge have improved my understanding of this vital part of our body. How I exercise, work, and even move has evolved for the better and my hip issue is a distant memory. Do yourself a favor and invest in this course; your body will thank you.
"As an older yoga practitioner and teacher to older students, I cannot recommend this course enough. If your goal is to move independently for as long as possible, and to have a solid understanding of hip-safe, evidence-based, mindful yoga, Yoga for 3D Hip Stability is it!"
