In the Body of Knowledge™: Whole Embodiment series you will gain an inspired understanding of your body’s musculoskeletal connectivity and intelligence. This series is appropriate for both curious students hoping for a more informed practice, and teachers looking to enhance their instruction.  You will receive take home study aids and optional homework between sessions.

Get ready to:

  • Learn key anatomical structures.
  • Clarify sophisticated biomechanical concepts.
  • Engender scientifically informed habits of thought through experiential learning and hands-on engagement.
  • Position yourself as an anatomically-informed teacher to grow your client base.

Module Topics

Module 1 – Hard Tissues: The Bony Fit of Your Joints

Explore and embody your major joint architecture to learn its significance in determining joint mobility and stability.

Learn key structural features of the bodies major joints, and their relevance to asana.

Module 2 – Soft Tissues: Flexibility, Hyper-mobility and Stretching

Gain a more scientifically complete understanding of what the terms ‘flexible’ and ‘inflexible’ actually mean as well as the implications hypo- and hyper-mobility have for pain and injury.

Module 3 – Joint Compression: What You Can’t Feel Can Hurt You

Structural variations are the inherent differences in bony architecture that make every body unique. Learn why structural variation matters in movement practices like yoga.

Module 4 – Hip Musculature: Muscle Attachments and Lines of Pull

Learn the major muscles of your hips, their attachments, and actions at the joint. Then experientially tour the key muscles of your hips in a playful practice to embody this understanding.

Module 5  – Shoulder Musculature: Ways Muscles Contract

Physically explore the 3 different ways muscles contract.

Explore synergistic muscle coordination of the shoulders through a playful practice.

Module 6 – Core Rapport: Mobility, Stability and Breath

Explore the reciprocal and synergistic influences between the force of breath and the tissues of the core.
