Foundations of Embodied Anatomy + Yoga

Foundations in Embodied Anatomy + Yoga is a deep, internal study of the body.  Each module explores the practice of yoga through key principles of each of the body systems, and the direct experience of the tissues and cells.  Foundations in Embodied Anatomy + Yoga opens a door to the transformative aspects of yoga and takes asanas from as external approach into the subtleties of yoga practice.

This immersion series offers opportunities to:

  • Reveal new aspects of the postures from the perspective of different body systems
  • Experience greater depth, ease and flow of movement in forming traditional yoga asana
  • Develop a yoga practice based on personal needs and abilites
  • Explore sequential relationships between postures
  • Observe and analyze the movement of others using this subtle and dynamic perspective
  • Illuminate new aspects of yoga

There are six modules in the FEAY series.  The full immersion offers an in-depth opportunity to explore relationships between fundamental principles of Body-Mind Centering and those of yoga.  The requirement for entry into these modules is a personal movement practice and a basic familiarity with yoga asana.  No prior experience with Body-Mind Centering is necessary.

These modules can be taken individually without commitment to the entire series.

The modules in the Foundations in Embodied Anatomy & Yoga immersion:

  • Support & Container: Bones & Ligaments
  • Contents & Relationships: Organs & Connective Tissues
  • Process: Cells, Breath & Embryology
  • Movement: Fluids & Muscles
  • Homeostasis: Endocrine, Nervous and Immune Systems

The next FEAY Immersion series will be held at the Dallas Yoga Center in Dallas, TX beginning in August 2016.  Check out module descriptions and schedule here.  For those 200-hour certified teacher who are interested in a 300-hour Advanced Somatic Yoga Educator certificate, click here.
