the craft of teaching yoga

the embodied bundle

Connection to our bodies is the pathway to liberation. When we learn the intricacies and function of our bodies, we build a deep connection and unwavering gratitude for its life, beauty, and impermanence.

These workshops are recommended as a group, done in succession, as they are strategically placed to build on the previous class. Prepare for mind splatter.


{ The Anatomy & Asana Bundle }

4 anatomy workshops • 3 asana school workshops • 3 intelligent sequencing workshops

Disclaimer: We recommend students take the classes in the order we have prepared. We build upon each class, using and reusing terms and concepts that would be lost on new students. Though, if students are boss (as many people are) and want to jump in mid-way, they are welcome to take a competency placement test and get prior approval from the facilitators. Dig it?


 
TOPICS AND LENGTH : • Anatomical Basics : 4-hours • The Hip Girdle : 6-hours • The Shoulder Girdle : 6-hours • The Spine & Core : 3-hours   OBJECTIVE : We will explore anatomy and asana through a functional movement and energetic healing lens. Our anatomy workshops are interactive and fun, and physical therapists, soma-movement specialists, and reiki healers endorse. We ensure our lectures are comprehensive, indeed, but also practical and applicable for yogis of varying experience.   OUTCOME : Each Alive Anatomy class equips yogis with current, relevant anatomical knowledge to find freedom of expression in their yoga practice. Our non-dogmatic, empowering anatomy lectures are explorative, hands-on, and discussion-based for fun learning that yogis can explore and apply to their practice immediately and for years to come!   Important note: this workshop includes respectful partner work, which all students are encouraged to participate, but not required. Also important to note: Alive Anatomy is the prerequisite for Asana School (see below).
