This workshop is accredited by the Yoga Alliance for continuing education in Anatomy & Physiology. It will consist of interactive lectures with anatomical models, illustrations, videos, and activities. You will have daily yoga practice led by Dr. Trish Corley.
Key topics covered are:
Align with Basic Terminology: Understand the structures and movement of the major joints in your body; how muscles support your asana practice; and how your body is connected.
What Does It Mean to “Tuck Your Tailbone”?: Explore the functional anatomy of your pelvis and your spine as it relates to asana and bring freedom into your practice as you discover how your tailbone moves.
Explore Your Core and Love Your Spine: Understand the structures of your spine including your neck. Practice techniques to minimize pain and injury in your back and to heal from the inside out.
Fire from Your Bandhas and Your Breath: Access the key structures to obtain (and maintain) bandhas (the energy locks) in your practice and be inspired by the anatomy of your breath.
Your Feet Are Your Foundation: Explore the anatomy of your legs from your hips to your feet. Reveal a new relationship between your feet and the Earth to bring freedom and power into your practice.
The Rhythm of the Shoulder (and Elbows, Wrists, and Hands): Discover what happens when you “wrap” and “slide” your shoulder blades. Align your shoulders to find ease in both standing postures and inversions ( downward facing dog, crow).
Integration: Although we study each body part separately, the body works as a whole. Anatomy Connections offers the opportunity to integrate the anatomy of your body through practical exercises, yoga asana, and Q&A.
