About the Event
Join Dr. Janine Bobby Ellison, who is a physical therapist, yoga instructor, veteran and long time amateur hiker for an integrative workshop to give you the tools and understanding to start decreasing your knee pain, hike longer and more freely! This workshop will give you an anatomical understanding of the causes of knee pain during your hikes, an arsenal of techniques to incorporate into your week to improve the quality of your tissues (think mobility, flexibility, and strength), and in-the-moment actions to help decrease the pain mid-hike. Is this only for hikers? No! Anyone with some bothersome knees will benefit, but this is geared toward women hikers with knee pain.
Participants should bring: exercise mat, hiking poles if you have them, water bottle, and a mask
Cost for this workshop is $35 per person. Pre-registration is required for this workshop.
