Embryology: Embodying the Origins of Asana
with Amy Matthews

August 18-22, 2014

Monday-Friday, 9:30am-5:00pm

Spend a week diving into your earliest fluid movements and cellular experiences in this 5-day workshop on embryology.

The study of embryology is an incredibly rich field, with the potential to exponentially deepen our understanding of human structure, movement and function.

Experiencing the fluid origins of our cells and tissues transforms our movement and re-patterns our relationships to gravity, the environment and our community in radical ways.


Come to individual days or the full week:

  • Day 1: Beginning: Conception, Implantation, Gastrulation, Folding
  • Day 2: Endoderm: Respiratory and Digestive Systems
  • Day 3: Ectoderm: Skin and Nervous Systems
  • Day 4: Mesoderm: Spine and Limbs
  • Day 5: Mesoderm: Kidneys and Gonads*

This immersion will involve discussion, movement, and time to sense, embody and observe – any level of movement ability is welcome, and no previous experience is necessary.

*Please note that in order to register for Day 5, there is a pre-requisite of attendance at one or more days earlier in the week, or special permission to attend for just that day.
