Full Description

An Integrated Approach to the Body and Movement Through Tantra Hatha Yoga

In this experiential course we will explore the major joints and muscle groups of the body to understand how they relate to movement, asana, and vitality. Through observation, hands-on exercises, and practice of asana, you will learn the location and function of key anatomical regions of the body and understand how they relate to asana, as well as how asana can in turn affect the body. Common imbalances and injuries for each body region will be addressed and you will learn how to apply asana therapeutically for specific injuries to maximize the healing and strengthening potential of yoga.

Participants of this program can expect to::

Learn the basic make-up of the body and anatomy of key anatomical regions of the body, most specifically as the joints and muscles relate to one another and to asana
Gain knowledge about how to work optimally with asana, as well as modifications and ways to work with imbalances and injury
Understand the “layers” of the nervous system, structure, pain and dysfunction
Gain basic insight on the relationship between chronic pain and the nervous system, including pranayama and meditation techniques to work with chronic pain conditions
Become more well-acquianted with her/his own body, patterns of movement, and how to utilize yoga as a healing modality
Deepen her/his ability to integrate and teach the powerful healing techniques of yoga
