Experiential Anatomy with Judith Hanson Lasater
at Yoga Yoga Westgate
or Call to register: 512-358-1200
Deeply understanding the anatomy and movement principles of the body is an invaluable tool for yoga teachers and serious students. Not only does it help your teaching, but it also enriches your own practice.
In this special training, we will practice active and quiet poses, but our work will be focused around learning specific anatomy by feeling it in our own bodies and seeing it in others' bodies. Often participants in this training realize they know a lot about anatomy because they feel it rather than verbalize it. What we will uncover is the movement principles (kinesiology) and names of that anatomy.
Not only will we stretch our hamstrings, for example, but we will also learn exactly where they attach and what exactly it is they do in the body besides make forward bends challenging.

Did you know?
Yoga Yoga was founded in Austin by husband and wife Mehtab Benton and Guru Karam, who began teaching out of the extra room in their house. Yoga Yoga opened its first studio doors in 1998 but as we like to say, we've been "locally Om'd" since 1997.
