    Anatomy of the Spine Workshop

    5:30 - 8:00pm

    Teacher: April

    Description: Join April in this workshop that looks at the anatomy and function of the spine and dysfunction that can occur here.  We begin with an interactive discussion of the muscles, bones, joints, and movements of the spine and how these concepts apply to your yoga asana practice. We will explore common injuries of the spine and how to work with students to heal problems in this area by personalizing the practice. As well, many of us are either born to backbend or dread it from the start of class. Which ever category you fall into, understanding the anatomy of  the spine can help you create a backbending practice that helps keep your spine healthy & supple and takes you deeper into your backbending practice. The backbends are traditionally used as a tonic both to the spine & the internal organs and therefore have a powerful effect on the entire body when used properly. This workshop  will give you an understanding of the anatomy and how to apply it to your regular practice.

    Single Class Fee $40.00
    3 Part Workshop $100.00

    Note:This is part of a 3 part series:
    Part 1: 3/3/17 - Anatomy of the Shoulder Workshop
    Part 2: 3/31/17 - Anatomy of the Hip Workshop
    Part 3: 5/12/17 - Anatomy of the Spine Workshop
