Embodied Anatomy with Vanessa Nassif
NEW DATE TBA, 12-4pm How does the weight of your head travel to your feet? The journey isn’t a straight line. Bones are curved and weighted spirals through our bones, which themselves contain spirals. Muscles travel in layered, spiraling 3D pathways and move our bones so they can bear weight. In this workshop, we will explore the principles of pathways of weight and balanced joint space through movement and discussion. Investigate how to organize your bones standing on your hands or your feet, allowing your muscles to sort themselves out. We will look at the anatomy of breath and how getting out of your way can facilitate free breathing. Can related mobility create stability in your yoga practice? This work is inspired by deep study with Amy Matthews and Leslie Kaminoff, authors of the widely-known Yoga Anatomy book. $65 Advanced Registration Only Unlimited Members 10% off Register here.
