Movement Literacy: Alignment in Asana in San Francisco

Would you like to improve your ability to see what might be impeding your students’ Asana practice?

Do you want to better understand how the body actually moves and what we as teachers can say and do that will help our students stay safe? This workshop will focus on learning alignment principles based on anatomical reality.

We will cover all the basic types of asana.:

Day 1: Stop tucking your tailbone: standing poses, headstand, backbends
Day 2 Free your shoulders: plank, chaturanga, up dog, down dog, shoulder stand
Day 3 Bending and twisting: standing and sitting forward bends and seated twists

Join us to explore this Asana practice we love so much so that we can deepen our own practice and help our students practice effectively and safely.

Experiential Anatomy in Orange County, California

  • You and the Mat Yoga Studio (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Experiential Anatomy for yoga teachers and serious students is unlike most anatomy classes.

We do not start with learning lists of anatomical facts; instead we start with what you already know: asana practice.

From asana, we extrapolate the anatomical and kinesiological priciples
that you have experienced in your body. We just give names to what you already have felt and “know in your bones”.

This 25-hour course is all about practical knowledge. We focus on learning what helps us practice with awareness and teach with confidence.

Many students have offered the feedback that this course was not only interesting and fun, but provided a firm basis for their teaching.
 
Is this course for me?

  • If you have been shy about studying anatomy, this course is for you.

  • If you have felt bored at the very thought of studying anatomy, this course is for you.

  • If you have felt excited about learning anatomy, but the only courses near you are just academic and lack a practical focus for yoga teachers, this course is for you.

  • If you have studied anatomy, and just want a refresher with a yoga emphasis, this course is for you.

Experiential Anatomy in London

Please register directly with YogaCampus beginning September 2016.

Deeply understanding the anatomy and movement principles of the body is an invaluable tool for yoga teachers and serious students. Not only does it help your teaching, it also enriches your own practice.

In this workshop we will practice Active and Quiet poses. But our work will be focused around learning specific anatomy by first feeling it in our bodies and seeing it in other bodies. Often participants in this workshop realize they already know a lot about anatomy because they feel it bodily rather than have the ability to verbalize it. The important next step is that we we will uncover together he movement principles (kinesiology) and be able to name the anatomical parts that are moving. It really doesn't help, for example, to know where the biceps muscle is if you don't understand how it works in various ways and with various other muscles. Our practice is about the moving, NOT static body.

Not only will we stretch the hamstrings, for example, but we will also learn exactly where they attach and what exactly it is they do in the body besides make forward bends challenging.

The required text will be Judith’s book, Yogabody: Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Asana, which will be available for sale at the workshop.

Experiential Anatomy in Vancouver, BC

Please register directly with the studio.

Deeply understanding the anatomy and movement principles of the body is an invaluable tool for yoga teachers and serious students. Not only does it help your teaching, it also enriches your own practice.

In this workshop we will practice both Active and Quiet poses. Our work will focus on learning specific anatomy by first feeling it in our bodies and then seeing it in others. Often participants in this workshop realize they already know much about anatomy because of body awareness gained through practice, yet haven’t learned the corresponding anatomical terms and theory.

Together, we we will uncover and explore movement principles (kinesiology) and their applications, and name the anatomical parts that are moving. It really doesn’t help, for example, to know where the biceps muscle is if you don’t understand how it works in various ways and with various other muscles. Our practice is about the moving, NOT the static, body.

Not only will we stretch the hamstrings, for example, but we will also learn exactly where they attach and what exactly it is they do in the body besides make forward bends challenging.

This intensive pulls from the vast depth and breadth of Judith’s knowledge and expertise gained through 40+ years as a yoga teacher and physiotherapist. She has worked with tens of thousands of students, and thus can offer a well of experience comparable to none. She truly is an incredible resource for anyone wanting to better understand anatomy and biomechanics as it applies to yoga asana.

Required text: Yogabody: Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Asana by Judith Hanson Lasater. Please read at least the first chapter prior to the workshop.

Location

We will gather at Mount Madonna Center, just outside of Watsonville, CA, in a sylvan setting based around spiritual practice. (nearest airport: San Jose International Airport, San Jose, CA; also San Francisco International Airport, but the SF airport is 1.5 hours away by car from MMC).

We will practice in a large airy beautiful room for yoga and learning.

I have been teaching at MMC since the 1980’s, and love going back there.

Come join us to learn and be part of our “anatomy community” for this five day workshop. Let someone else cook; let someone else clean up.

Let yourself settle into a supportive retreat setting with yoga teachers from many different parts of the country, and focus on learning more about the art of teaching and practicing this yoga we all love so much.
