Human anatomy and physiology is a vast subject, as is the art of yoga. Nevertheless, combining knowledge from both fields is extremely beneficial to the yoga practitioner. Athletes can improve their performance and experience fewer injuries through a basic understanding of their musculoskeletal system. Similarly, yoga practitioners can benefit from the application of Western science to their practice development.
Join Ray Long and Chris Macivor for a weekend journey into the body. This workshop is not just about anatomy and yoga, but about the inter-connectiveness within our body. This year, Ray Long will be introducing more therapeutic applications to his practice and will have even more cutting edge technology through which to gain wisdom and understanding about the amazing body and yoga.
Here are topics that will be covered in this interactive workshop:
- Introduction to muscle awakening and body clairvoyance
- Form and function of the skeleton
- Form and function of the major joints
- Ligaments in yoga
- Muscles and tendons
- Stretching physiology
- Stretching biomechanics
The application of the fundamentals in asana
