Deeply understanding the anatomy and movement principles of the body is an invaluable tool for yoga teachers and serious only does it help your teaching, it also enriches your own practice. In this workshop we will practice active and quiet poses. But our work will be focused around learning specific anatomy by feeling it in our bodies and seeing
it in other bodies. Often participants in this workshop realize they
know a lot about anatomy because they feel it rather than verbalize
it. What we will uncover together is the movement principles
(kinesiology) and names of that anatomy. Not only will we stretch the hamstrings, for example, but we will also learn exactly where they attach and what exactly it is they do in the body besides make
forward bends challenging. The required text will be Judith’s book,
Yogabody: Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Asana.
