EMBODIED ANATOMY

In the ongoing series of workshops and in our short courses for teachers, we take anatomy off the page and screen and search it out in our own body. We locate the felt-sense of structures and systems, explore their rhythms and flows, consider how they might support and initiate our posture and movement. We also apply a somatic approach and unravel any sense of story or meaning we discover in the body.

Our short courses are open to all teachers as CPD, however where indicated priority is given to participants of our 300h Teacher Training and Enrichment Programme.

Tutor: Beverley Nolan

Date: TBA

Venue: TBA

Description: This is a full day of enquiry and practice to find a clear experiential integration of the potential flow and stability of the psoas (and iliacus), including a series of practices based on the work of Donna Farhi, Leila Stuart, Liz Koch, and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen.

Navel Radiation - organising like a starfish

Tutor: Beverley Nolan

Date: TBA

Venue: TBA

Description: One of our earliest organisational patterns centres around the navel. We experience the navel as a source of nourishment and a pathway of elimination and it is around the navel that our head and tail, our arms and legs explore the in utero environment. All relationships between the limbs are experienced through the mediation of this centre. In this workshop we will rediscover these connections through movement enquiry and practice of yoga Forms.

Yield & Push - a constructive relationship between body and earth

Tutor: Beverley Nolan

Date: TBA

Venue: TBA

Fee: TBA

Description:  In this workshop we will unpick the concept of "grounding" to discover it as a dynamic conversation between our body and Earth. We will seek out the this dialogue and how it can inform our posture, movement and Yoga practice.
