Anatomy and Physiology

GS_AP1_6-7.2015_10of12In Anatomy and Physiology, students will explore the relationship to yoga asana, movement, meditation, breathing, and the essence of the Phoenix Rising approach with the intention of encouraging a multi-dimensional sense of wonder and curiosity about the miracle of the human body. This workshop relies on the study of a student’s best anatomy & physiology resource – their own body. Through auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning methods students will have the opportunity to experience physical, emotional and spiritual bodies through lecture, play, creativity, touch, demonstration and questioning.

Core areas of study include but are not limited to:

  • Musculo-skeletal anatomy and physiology, subtle anatomy and physiology of edge
  • Key relationships between structures, systems, and functions of the body, and anatomical alignment
  • Considerations, cautions and contraindications of many physical conditions, common questions and misconceptions.
