Interested in studying anatomy with Amy or Leslie? Leslie is teaching his Yoga Anatomy: Principles course this cycle, while Amy’s Embodied Anatomy & Kinesiology course focuses on Muscles. Interested in cultivating embodied teaching skills while diving deeply into selected topics with Amy? We have spots available in many of this year’s Somatic Synthesis Workshops.
Two one-year, three-trimester courses, each of which travels through the body addressing structure and movement from an experiential perspective, involving discussion and movement. Using principles from Body-Mind Centering, Laban Movement Analysis and the Bartenieff Fundamentals, PNF and various yoga practices, we will discuss principles of alignment and therapeutic applications.

Two Year-long Series of 10 Weekend Workshops
Somatic Synthesis Workshops (SSW) are made up of two year-long series of 10 weekend workshops. These workshops provide opportunities to explore advanced concepts in anatomy, kinesiology, physiology and embryology.
We pay particular attention to the development of embodied teaching skills and explore what it “is” to transmit information with skill. Students are challenged to use these explorations to develop principles of skillful teaching and put them into practice.
