As a yoga teacher or practitioner, we’re always bumping into our personal understanding of anatomy as we explore the practice of yoga poses within ourselves and while observing others. Exploring our individual movement is one of the greatest takeaways of a consistent yoga practice. Although yoga isn’t just about anatomy, it is through our movement that we experience, interact, and connect to these deeper layers of our body. Knowing the fundamentals of the human structure can make a huge difference in our confidence when teaching or practicing; and it also lays an important mindful foundation for us to go deeper within our personal practice. Join Emilie Perz for a weekend of anatomy and asana. In this weekend course you’ll become familiar with the major muscles of the body, how they perform throughout the yoga practice and how to properly engage and lengthen muscles for stability and suppleness. Each day will begin with a targeted asana practice followed by a lecture of the muscles showcased and how to sequence these muscles effectively in a class. You will also learn how to spot and rectify common posture mistakes to prevent repetitive stress injury and how to cue muscle physiology (contractions) to help strengthen alignment placement. Come build a foundation of knowledge that you can apply to all your practice explorations. This immersion will help you assess your individual needs while working in a group setting; and Emilie’s positivity and clear communication style make learning and applying these complex topics easy and fun!
