Explore the intelligence of the human body


May 3-5, 2019

Fri 5-8PM • Sat 9-4:30PM • Sun 9-4:30PM

Location: Journey Yoga, Calgary, AB

Faculty: Nora Maskey

Not an anatomy geek? That’s OK! We have streamlined the key points of anatomy and biomechanics in this weekend workshop.  Understanding how your body moves, and teaching with this knowledge, empowers your students to explore their asana practice with confidence and awareness.
In this informative and interactive weekend, you will learn about body structures such as fascia, the skeleton, and joints and muscles as they pertain to yoga asanas. We will discuss useful tools to find optimal alignment and healthy movement of the body as well as explore how to work with some common challenges we face on the yoga mat. Understand your own body and use that insight to teach with greater understanding and compassion.

Key Concepts

Anatomy & Biomechanics come alive in this weekend workshop through interactive learning and hands-on exploration. By learning in a group setting, you will explore with each other to gain a wider perspective on the anatomical similarities between us, as well as our unique and individual differences. Anatomy & Biomechanics are pivotal synergists to inform your personal asana practice as well as your teachings. The workshop content is heavy on posture analysis, restorative exercises, and the use of props to adapt poses to people.
We will explore:
• Anatomical terms of reference
• The musculoskeletal system and connective tissue
• Regional anatomy
• Yoga asana analysis
• Use of props to support and adapt yoga postures
