Everyone, even yogis, injure themselves at some point in life – often unconsciously, through an accident, or repetitive overuse. When injured, our body automatically uses a variety of natural healing mechanisms to aid in recovery. Often, we ignore or discount these forces, and choose quicker remedies (drugs or surgery) to relieve the pain or symptoms. These quick remedies may heal the physical body, but leave the “memory” of the injury in the “psychology” of the person – the nervous system and connective tissues, which can create reoccurring problems.
In this practical workshop, antidotes using asana will be shown, for a variety of common injuries, including those that often show up in yoga practitioners. With volunteers from class, types of yogic movement will be explored that support the body’s natural healing forces over the different stages of an injury. This knowledge will help students heal existing or old injuries – physically and physiologically, and also provide tools for future injuries.
The instruction is designed for all-level practitioners, and will be part lecture, part practice. For those with current injuries, modifications will be shown to help with those conditions.

PETER STERIOS is an inner explorer. Drawn to yoga as a young man, he studied intensively with a master teacher for 20 years. At 39, Peter broke his back, facing an invasive surgery with no guarantees. With no outward path to rely on, or the physical practices he had learned, Peter went inward. There, he found new teachers: Gravity & Grace.
Peter has been part of the global yoga community for over four decades as a teacher, author, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. He is the founder of MANDUKA™, creator of LEVITYoGA™, taught yoga at the Obama White House for 3 years, and spoke as a wellness expert at the Pentagon for the US Marine Corps in 2018. His first DVD “Gravity & Grace” made Yoga Journal’s “Top 15 Yoga Videos of All Time.”
Peter’s book “Gravity & Grace: How to Awaken Your Subtle Body and the Healing Power of Yoga” is Nautilus Book Award’s 2019 Gold Medal Winner, selected from over 500 entries. Get your signed copy today.
