The Anatomy of Vinyasa Workshop


The next in our series of 2015 workshops will help you analyze the mechanics of your body from an anatomical perspective, based on the vast interconnectedness of muscular and fascial tissues in your body (popularly known as Myofascial Meridians). In this 2.5-hour lecture and movement practice, you will learn about Myofascial Meridians, or how muscles interact with one another.

By breaking down the movements involved with Vinyasa, including Surya Namaskar A & B, as well as some of the more common twists, lunges and backbends, Cameron & Lauren will guide you through a series of exercises and stretches based on specific Myofascial Meridians. This will illustrate the connection between the different poses as well as the relationship of the muscles and fascia involved in each pose. Several different stretching modalities will be used including partner-assisted stretching and self-myofascial release (SMR) techniques, similar, but not limited to, foam rolling, rolling on balls and other self-massage and release techniques.

For the first 1.5 hours, Cameron will offer an in-depth lecture and exercise series breaking down a variety of Vinyasa-oriented poses and sequences. Next, Lauren will lead you through a one-hour movement practice to get deeper into your tight spots, while incorporating the lecture material.

This workshop is all levels and especially suitable for yogis, surfers, runners and other athletes looking to gain a better understanding of how their body works. Beginners are welcome. Sign up soon as capacity is limited!
