Workshop Description: Annamaya Kosa; Patanjali states pratyaksa (direct experience) is the path to knowledge. We will review joints, muscles and fascia and observe how any one factor can affect the function of the whole being. Learn/review the application of anatomical terms like prime mover, synergist and antagonist and reciprocal inhibition theory as it applies to yoga. This workshop will help you identify the cause and to correct common imbalance and to apply this knowledge in your MT practice or yoga classes. From here we will advance to Pranamaya Kosa and the anatomy of the breath from both eastern and western perspectives. Extensive handouts, power point tools and hands on. We will be doing plenty of yoga to let the intelligence of the mind learn from the body’s wisdom.
