June 9th -11th
Anatomy study doesn’t have to be dry and technical. In this workshop we’ll apply the information directly to yoga as we review important bones, joints, muscles, and other soft tissue. We will discuss particular anatomical challenges of common poses for beginner and advanced practitioners alike, and you will receive guidelines and preventative cautions for the most common yoga injuries. Come prepared to work interactively and creatively to refine your understanding of how the body works.
Can’t make the whole weekend? A la carte pricing: $100/Friday $130 Saturday or Sunday (contact us to register).
Fridays: 1:30pm – 8pm
Saturdays and Sundays: 9:30am – 1pm, 3pm – 7pm
