BIOVINYASA AND ASANA WORKSHOP
One of the keys to a sophisticated yoga practice is our ability to “see” our own bodies accurately (our interoception) and then develop the skill to move specific parts of our body (our proprioception). Yoga teachers often include anatomical references in their instructions, but the gap is often wide between hearing the instruction and accessing/moving that body part.
In BioVinyasa, Ross will project anatomical images and visuals from an interactive anatomy app of various bones, muscles and connective tissue. He then leads the class through a sequence of poses related to the highlighted anatomy. You’ll be amazed at what a difference it makes to view the anatomy, visualize it internally and then feel it right away in your own body. The BioVinyasa sessions are open to all levels and is highly encouraged for teachers and students interested deepening their alignment knowledge and overall practice.
