Exploring The Foundations of Asana
April 23, 2016 - April 25, 2016$125 – $200
Join us for an exploratory weekend of unfolding the physical expression of Yoga. Each āsana blossoms from the inside out – from the spine outward. Each day we will focus on a different aspect of this journey.
During Saturday’s workshop we will delve deeply into the functional anatomy of the spine and all aspects of spinal articulation and movement. We will review methods of spinal assessment and explore different assists that can relieve spinal compression, subluxation and nerve impingement.
Sunday’s class will be a fast-paced, information packed day of fun movement-based learning. Not just lecture, each concept will be re-enforced by experiential exercises. This course is open to Yoga Teachers and Therapists who would like to expand their “vocabulary” of postural and functional assessment skills.
