$25.00 Applied Yoga Anatomy - Lower Limbs and Pelvis


Anatomy in Action 1 – Lower Limbs and Pelvis – working with aligning from the soles of the feet through the lower legs, knees, and upper legs into the hip joints (pelvis).  Intended for all levels of yoga teachers and yoga therapists?.

Need a quick yoga anatomy refresher?  Want to brush up on what it means to “engage” specific muscles/muscle groups? Clarify a familiar instruction to ensure it produces the intended action? Better assess whether your students are actually “getting” what you’re teaching? Increase your toolbox with some easy pose/action adaptations when an intended action seems to be out of reach? Then come with your questions and let’s explore yoga anatomy in action together!

This will be a mini-workshop series of four workshops on action-oriented yoga anatomy – come to one, or come to all!

Each workshop will consist of a brief anatomy review of the areas being covered. 

Then the remainder of the workshop will be experiential, including doing the pose/action to understand it anatomically in your body, observing others doing the pose/action, assessing how to instruct to get the desired action in the pose, teaching the action, and understanding how to modify the pose if the action is inaccessible. 

Includes a handout of poses/actions taught.

Hours count as CE units for yoga teachers registered with Yoga Alliance.
