Fine tune your ability to listen when your body is speaking.

An added benefit to a regular yoga practice is having a better sense of body awareness. Enhance your relationship with YOU by acquiring basic anatomy information and by learning how it applies to your yoga practice. Untangle some anatomy lingo and take a closer look at a few key components of the body, like: shoulders, spine, and hips, which are all key hubs for our yoga asana, or postural practice. Finally experience what we’ve learned through movement. Feel free to come with some questions.

Please email us to RSVP as a member.

Core Anatomy & Movement

An Experiential Workshop with Michael Stein

Saturday, May 23rd, 2:30-4:30pm

 

This intensive workshop will focus on the anatomy of the 3 primary cores: the torso, hip & shoulder.  You will learn how to use yoga asanas and short sequences to isolate these muscles and create more length and strength during your yoga practice. We will break up the class with sun salutes, asana sequences as well as anatomy of the core muscles for better understanding. This workshop is perfect for any yogi, from the newcomer to the experienced practitioner, who is interested in learning more about the core anatomy and its relation to yoga asana movement.
