This Module provides an evolutionary look at the fusion of energetic and physical anatomy for yoga therapists and teachers. We will begin our journey at the surface of the body and layer by layer deepen our understanding and ultimately our connection with the miraculous temple that holds the self. We will explore the world of fascia, the web that holds us together and tells our story, through various modalities including, movement, myo-fascial release, visualization, mudra, mantra and meditation. We will also study myo-fascial meridians (Anatomy Trains) how they apply to yoga as well as look at common injuries, habits and overuse “symptoms” associated with these specific lines of the body and how we can use yoga therapeutically treat these imbalances.
Students will gain knowledge of Fascia, how it is made and what it does in the body.
Students will gain knowledge of how the fascia responds to stretch, exercise, and movement.
Students will understand proprioception: interception and exteroception.
Students will gain familiarity with the Anatomy Trains model by Tom Myers.
Students will be familiar with the basic postural imbalances and demonstrate the ability to asses these imbalances as related to the anatomy trains model.
Students will gain an in depth knowledge and demonstrate the ability to use foam rollers and balls to release the myo-fascia in combination with yoga asana and pranayama.
Students will gain an in depth knowledge and demonstrate the ability to offer asana modifications, variations and props for specific imbalances.
Students will learn how to create effective sequences for addressing the mho-fascial imbalances.
