45: Incorporating FRC Into Yoga Classes with Clayton Weakley

Have you been hearing yoga teacher friends talk about PAILs and RAILs and CARs and 90/90 and you’re feeling a little left out because you have no idea what they’re talking about? No worries… we’re going to fix that today! Clayton Weakley is a friend of mine and while he started his teaching career as a Yoga Tune Up teacher he now works as a Functional Range Conditioning movement coach. We’ve got him on the podcast sharing tons of great ideas for incorporating FRC into yoga classes!

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • what Functional Range Conditioning, or FRC®, is and how it is different from other mobility systems
  • an explanation of the basic principles of FRC like:
    • CARs– Controlled Articular Rotations
    • PAILs — progressive angular isometric loading
    • RAILs — regressive angular isometric loading
  • how FRC is different from PNF Stretching
  • why mobility training, body control and joint strength are ideas yoga teachers should be thinking about
  • some simple ways that yoga teachers could start to incorporate these principles into their teaching
