Embryology: Embodying the Origins of Asana
The study of embryology is an incredibly rich field, with the potential to exponentially deepen our understanding of human structure, movement and function. Experiencing the fluid origins of our cells and tissues transforms our movement and re-patterns our relationships to gravity, the environment and our community in radical ways. This weekly study group involves both discussion and movement, with time to sense, embody and observe - any level of movement ability is welcome, and no previous experience is necessary.
This class is an opportunity to bring your questions and curiosities about your baby's movement patterns - we'll use principles from Body-Mind Centering to explore the movements in our own bodies and playing with the little ones.
Asana Class: Body, Space & Breath
This weekly asana class is an opportunity to deeply embody the relationship between our body systems, developmental patterns and yoga asana using principles of Body-Mind Centering and Bartenieff Fundamentals. Open to all levels of movement.
Embodied Anatomy & Kinesiology course
This course travels through the body addressing structure and movement from an experiential perspective, using principles from Body-Mind Centering, Laban Movement Analysis and the Bartenieff Fundamentals, PNF and various yoga practices to discuss principles of alignment and therapeutic applications.
In alternate years we will focus on different systems - in the first year we will focus on the bones, joints and ligaments that provide support, allow movement, and transmit weight and force through space. In the second year we will focus on the muscular system and how it creates, modulates and refines our movement choices.
In both years, each trimester covers a different part of the body: The fall session focuses on the spine, the winter session focuses on the lower limb (foot to pelvis) and the spring session on the upper limb (hand to scapula).
Class involves both discussion and movement - any level of movement ability is welcome, and no previous yoga experience is necessary. Each trimester is a self-contained unit that can be taken separately, and the course can be started at the beginning of any trimester. There are no prerequisites for this course.
The A&K Asana class is based on the topic that is being taught in the Embodied A&K class, and is an opportunity to see how that material can be integrated into an asana practice.
