ANATOMY FOR YOGA WORKSHOP APRIL 20-21, 2013

STUDY ANATOMY AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO YOGA ASANA 

April 20-21 from 2-7:30 PM I will be teaching a musculoskeletal anatomy course at mang'Oh Yoga in Manhattan. The course is a part of mang'Oh's teacher training program, but if you contact the studio you can make arrangements to take this workshop independently! This link will take you to the page with their contact info. Mang'Oh is a great space at 322 East 39th Street in Manhattan between 1st and 2nd avenue. They also offer a variety of yoga classes throughout the week. 

The course will introduce vocabulary and concepts of anatomy and kinesiology, survey the tissues of the musculoskeletal system, and explore the structures and movements of the skeleton and major muscles. There will also be a small unit on injury prevention. 

As per usual, I will use anatomical images projected on a wall, drawing on the body, and occasional simple asana instruction to get us exploring the soma intellectually and physically. The class is designed to keep anatomy novices and advanced students alike engaged, learning, and entertained. Hope you can make it!
