Learn from each other - Explore skeletal variation and basic anatomy to creatively approach your yoga practice.
When was the last time you considered that on a structural level we are unique individuals, that our bones are all different, and this can affect your yoga practice?
Join Allison McGuigan to explore skeletal variation and basic anatomy concepts to gain a deeper understanding of your physical body and how it affects your yoga poses. We each have a different bone structure, which means our poses will always look and feel different. Using this knowledge we will creatively approach and explore how to find more ease in your yoga poses.
This will be an interactive, hands-on workshop to observe and experience different bone structures that will culminate in a full yin yoga class. The longer holds and floor poses of class will allow you to practice what you discover.
Allow me to share how I personally approach my postures for exploring sensations of tension and compression in my body.
No prior experience is required. Come with an open mind, prepared to explore and gain a deeper level of understanding of your physical body.
