Anatomy of Asana -
with Jason R. Brown, E-RYT500, LMT
April 25, 26, 2015
Sat & Sun, 9-12 & 2-6pm
In this weekend workshop, we’ll look at a variety of yoga postures through the lens of musculo-skeletal anatomy, with an emphasis on raising more awareness about: i) the most common alignment issues that arise within each posture, as well as the potential anatomical causes of such issues; ii) the safety considerations that might exist within each posture, along with an exploration of skillful techniques that can reduce the likelihood of injury; and iii) sequencing strategies that might best prepare for each posture.
