$25.00 Applied Yoga Anatomy: Pelvis, Lower Back, Core
Anatomy in Action 2 – Pelvis, Lower Back, and Core – working with aligning from the pelvic floor, sacrum, lower back, deeper abs, and spinal muscles.
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. 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.
