Anatomy of Breath-Centered Yoga is made up of two one-year, three-trimester courses that provide a practical grounding in the principles of yoga viewed through the lens of anatomy. This course travels through the body from a multitude of perspectives, placing particular emphasis on adaptability in breathing, healthy spinal function, skeletal alignment and finding easeful support in relationship to gravity.
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 Weekends
Practices in Embodied Teaching is made up of two year-long series of 10 weekends. These weekends provide opportunities to take an experiential dive into anatomy, kinesiology, physiology and embryology. Each weekend, limited to 15 students, focuses on a specific anatomical topic and includes lecture, discussion, movement and a short teaching exploration. In addition to learning and experiencing the material, we’ll consider how deepening our own embodiment supports the practice of teaching.
