FUNCTIONAL ANATOMY OF YOGA
This three-day anatomy intensive with nationally renowned teacher, Ellen Heed, is highly experiential with an emphasis on sharpening each teacher’s perceptual skills to better assess the needs of their students in the environment of a yoga class. This class satisfies the 20-hour anatomy requirement for the National Yoga Alliance 200-hour certification.
The art of assessment is a life-long process by which a yoga teacher gains mastery and depth as an instructor. Learn some of the short-cuts to assessment in this fun and highly informative class about the interrelationship of the Rule of Four: Biomechanics, Biochemistry, Scar Tissue, and Emotional Blockage.
In this class, you will learn to perceive:
How our Emotional Blockage expresses itself as posture and postural deviation.
How our Scar Tissue affects flexibility, even at a distance from an injury.
How genetics influences our Biomechanics and how to tell when it doesn’t.
How our Biochemistry (for better of for worse can determine the pleasure of our practice.
What to expect:
Visual: There will be richly illustrated lectures and physical demonstrations.
Aural: We will have lively and intense question and answer interactions.
Kinesthetic: We will learn hands-on exercises combining palpation skills and bodywork technique to find out where emotions affect our energetic systems, and how to get the most out of the relaxation response.
We will also practice Experiential Anatomy Yoga, taught by one of the Forrest Yoga trainers
