Myofascial Yoga And Functional Anatomy For Yoga Teachers*
Are you ready for anatomy to be exciting??
Anatomy is often hard to learn, reduced to a series of parts to be memorized and labelled. But what if it could be alive, dynamic, and directly relatable to your own body and the movements you make each and every day? This module will move the old model of anatomy into a whole new dimension.
Come join us in this groundbreaking workshop where fascia chains become whole body networks of multi-dimensional geometry that anticipates and responds to your every movement!
In this workshop we will cover:
- Functional Anatomy ‒ anatomy as applied to everyday movements and movement teachers
- Closed Kinematic Chains ‒ what they are, and how they relate to yoga
- History of Anatomy ‒ how far it has come, and what we can expect for its future
- Anatomy Trains and Beyond ‒ understanding muscle chains and, even further, learning to see the body as one interconnected web of tissue
- Biotensegrity ‒ its interpretation of anatomy as opposed the traditional model
- Updates from the 2018 British Fascia Symposium ‒ what’s new in the science of fascia and anatomy
- Interoception, Proprioception and Intuition ‒ how they relate to anatomy, function, and movement
This 6-day training can be used as a 50-hour standalone CEU certificate, or as part of your 300-hour Advanced Myofascial Yoga Yoga Alliance registered teacher training.
*A 200 hour RYT prerequisite is required for entry into this training.
Hours: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Thursday through Tuesday
Investment: $699 early bird rate available till October 1st ~ $899 after August 1st
Thursday and Friday: Functional Anatomy
Physiotherapist Sandra Soloski will teach us about fascia anatomy and how it relates to our ability to function in everyday activities.
Saturday and Sunday: Anatomy of Ground Substance
Carol Davis will teach us about the anatomy of ground substance, and how mindful yoga impacts these subtle tissues. She will be covering the makeup of fascia all the way down to the cellular (and energetic!) level.
Monday and Tuesday: Geometry of Anatomy
Joanne Avison is back! This week she will be teaching us the geometry of anatomy, and the art of exploring closed kinematic chains as applied to functional movement and biotensegrity.
Joanne Avison is the author of Fascia Anatomy and Movement, as well as co-founder and director of the Art of Contemporary Yoga Teacher Training School, (AOCY) accredited worldwide by Yoga Alliance (USA), Yoga Federation of India, European Yoga Alliance and IPTI. Her considerable experience in both movement and manual therapy inspired the school’s unique approach to yoga and anatomy.
Joanne is also a CMED Graduate (2004) and has studied extensively in human development as well as specialising in soft tissue and the links between archetypal behaviour and physiology.
