Anatomy Awareness in Asana with Julie Gudmestad
A Week-long Class Series with Julie Gudmestad, a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher and Physical Therapist. You will learn to identify structures visually, by palpation and by "feel", as you understand the anatomy underlying these structures. This is a great way to deepen your practice or to add as an adjunct to a yoga teacher training program.
Type of Event
Monday through Friday, 9 am - 12 pm and 2 pm - 4 pm with a 2 hour lunch break.
$50 non-refundable deposit or full tuition of $650 in US funds to secure your space. Full payment is due by July 25, 2016.
Yoga Teacher CE credit available. Other professional CE credit may also be available.
In this class series you will get much more than a traditional classroom lecture on anatomical terminology, bones, muscles and joints. In hands-on, open-for-questions environment you will:
~ Learn to "see" muscles in action, and correctly describe the movement.
~ Understand how muscles interact to form movement patterns in yoga poses.
~ See demonstrations of both structure and function.
~ Participate in asana practice sessions that allow you to feel the actions of the muscles and the dramatic affects of subtle changes in alignment.
~ Become an advocate of the value of proper alignment for the safety of yoga poses.
By the end of the series, you will have learned to identify structures visually, by palpation and by "feel", because you will have gained the foundation to understanding the anatomy underlying these structures.
