Anatomy of a Yogi

with Ame Wren
Select Tuesdays, July 16 - August 20, 2019
12:30pm - 5:30pm

This 4-part workshop is intended to be a crash course in basic anatomical concepts as they relate to yoga. Open to yoga teachers and practitioners alike, our afternoons will be conducted as part lecture and part lab.


Over 20 hours of study we will look at foundational postures across all categories (standing, seated, backward and forward extension, lateral, inverted) with a keen eye on how the posture can best function as a method for greater physiological stability and mobility. Understandings of “alignment” are ever-changing in the yoga world and we will also discuss why that is. CE credit available for yoga and movement teachers. Recommended pre-workshop reading: Functional Anatomy of Yoga by David Keil.
