ANATOMY WORKSHOPS with KELLY SOLLOWAY: Begins Sunday, October 22nd in Ramsey

Sunday, November 19th, 12:30-3:00 pm
Anatomy of the Hips

Sunday, December 17th, 12:30-3:00 pm
Anatomy of the Shoulders

Anatomy? Hmmmm… that sounds pretty boring…. But… If you are a yoga practitioner you know the importance of keeping this body of ours feeling good and are always looking to improve your practice. If you are a teacher you know that improving your anatomy knowledge can invaluably improve your teaching skills. Learning more about how the body moves, and getting a more intimate knowledge of exactly what is going on as you practice asana is the primary aim of this workshop. Another opportunity to get to know yourself a little bit better! This will be part talk and part hands on. On the first weekend we will explore the skeletal system with emphasis on the spine and finish up with a brief overview of joints and the muscular system. The second weekend will focus on the hips and the third weekend on the shoulders. You can sign up for all 3 or just the ones that interest you. If you think anatomy is boring this will be boring, but if you are open to having some fun with it, please join me.

These workshops are open to all levels of practitioners with a desire to delve deeper into their practice and learn more about what we are made of.

$40 per workshop; sign up for all three for $100. Yoga Alliance CEU credits available for teachers.
