Prana Yoga Training is pleased to welcome back Judith Hanson Lasater. We are located in Coral Gables, Florida. This immersion will assist students in 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.
About this Training
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.
