Accessible & Applied: Anatomy Comes to Life on a Yoga Mat
Accessible anatomy is functional and straightforward. It's not about dazzling with big words and strange Latin terms. Terminology is important and useful, but the goal is to make the most relevant information clear and understandable, then apply it directly to the practice of yoga. If you're a student, you'll learn to visualize and feel what's happening in your body, find optimal engagement and alignment, and make adjustments for a safe, present and rewarding practice. If you're a teacher, you'll apply this knowledge to your own practice and also use it to develop classes and assist students. With an understanding of the functional anatomy of yoga, you'll expand your options for verbal cues, modifications, and adjustments.
This three-session series will focus on integration of knowledge into yoga practice and teaching. Participants will learn and study in a variety of ways (pre-class readings, lectures, discussions, demonstrations, and activities) and will develop yoga applications based on personal interests and goals.
Small-group study, in-depth learning.
