Taking a holistic view of yoga anatomy, this 10-hour training is designed to help students understand and feel the yoga body from a global perspective, and to deeply explore alignment without being fixated on anatomical minutia. Rather than memorizing muscle origins and attachments, this workshop will explore the evolving science of biotensegrity, myofascial chaining, and breath-based movement, and how these principles offer an alternative way to understand yoga anatomy. We’ll engage in lecture/discussions, practice mostly gentle, breath-centered yoga, observe each other in poses and try various experiential exercises to deepen our understanding and heighten our awareness. Recommended for yoga teachers, yoga therapists as well as serious students, as well as health care professionals, bodyworkers, dancers and anyone else with an interest in this topic.

This course is being offered as a 4 week series. Each session is 2.5 hours and will be recorded. Recordings will be available to attendees for one month.
