This weekend will run on the 25th & 26th of March 9am – 5pm

Looking for a hands-on way to delve deeper into your understanding of Anatomy? Join Avid Yogi and creative anatomist, Karen Kirkness (MFA, MSc), for a weekend of activities designed to take you deep into fascination with this marvel of natural engineering: the Dynamic Spine.

This Weekend will introduce the concepts of:

• Tensegrity

• The ECM: our Extracellular Matrix (a bit of biology)

• Anatomy of the Axial Skeleton (the spine in context)

• Practical approaches to shoulder opening

• Body Painting activity for learning the shoulder and superficial upper back anatomy

• Learn Karen’s 10 preparations for deepening the backbend

• Understand the limiting factors (shoulders, iliopsoas and their role in backbending)

…And how all this applies to Backbending!

Prepare to become fully immersed in a range of techniques to address all your “stuck” zones, including the infamous thoracic region.

The weekend will be 50% theory and 50% practice.

Discover the beauty of human anatomy in practice through a variety of innovative training techniques to engage every learning style.
