FOUNDATIONS IN EMBODIED ANATOMY with Lisa Clark & Amy Matthews continues November 9-11.
Embody your yoga from the inside out, bringing greater somatic awareness to your practice.
MOVEMENT: Fluid & Muscles
Movement begins in our fluids, and our muscles continue to express that movement throughout our life. In this course we’ll explore fluids as a body system and their dynamic role in communicating within our tissues to negotiate tone and create change. With fluids as our ground we’ll explore muscles as an interdependent whole-body source of strength, mobility, and power that balances action, rest, stillness and presence.
This workshop is open to everyone, it will offer you fresh perspective on your yoga practice, and shed new light on the inner workings of asana.
Explore yoga from a whole-body consciousness - learning new sources of structure and integrity by opening new layers of kinesthetic awareness. The Foundations in Embodied Anatomy immersion teaches yoga as a fully creative, authentic, life nurturing practice, and encourages us to reach into the roots of our full human design and potential.
Each weekend workshop is three full days: all day Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 9am-4pm with a lunch hour taken mid-day. The format for each day includes lecture, light asana, interactive study and discussion.
The requirement for entry into these courses is a personal movement practice and a basic familiarity with yoga asana. No prior experience with Body-Mind Centering® is necessary.
