In both yoga and anatomy, what we can’t “see,” we may not acknowledge or understand. What we do perceive, however, can often create space in our field of vision as yoga teachers as well as in our own practice. We will explore the changeable place of perception in the history of anatomy and how yoga teaches us through focus that things appear in their true shape (Yoga Sutra 1.2–4).
In this workshop we will mix anatomy stories, images, and video clips from lab and anatomical atlases (illustrated maps of the human body) with hands-on explorations and yoga practice to understand the human body and its variations on a deeper level. Through visuals and practice, Lauri will guide participants into exploring new connections and understanding. Yoga teachers and anatomy students of all levels are welcome. Come explore!
Recommended Props: two blocks, yoga strap, blanket, and pencil (or pen) and paper to draw and write on!
A recording will be made available to participants for one week following the workshop.
