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
- Interoception, Proprioception and Intuition ‒ how they relate to anatomy, function, and movement
Interoception, Proprioception and Intuition ‒ how they relate to anatomy, function, and movement
