Topics covered:

  • Learn key anatomical principles
  • Anatomy of bandhas
  • Anatomical relationships between asana
  • Anatomy of lift-up – jump back
  • Anatomy of the knee
  • Techniques of backbending

In the  Yoga Anatomy Workshop, we will work with and talk about the  anatomy  doing practice correctly through effort and attention on the core elements of the practice: breath, bandha, and dristhi , while practicing asana.

There are anatomical components that support breath, bandha and even dristi. Without these elements, how can one truly develop in the practice? Understanding these components anatomically will give our mind a new way to envision them. The more depth of understanding we have of the core elements of the practice, the more we can trust the practice in the moment.

In addition, we can use physical technique, supported by anatomical understanding, to help get us to a more comfortable place in the asana. This allows for better breath and bandha. In this Yoga Anatomy Workshop, we will pick apart some of the more difficult aspects of the practice from an anatomical perspective, including, but not limited to, backbends, lotus, and jump backs.
