Functional Anatomy Workshops
Learning and understanding the functional design of our bodies is important for our ease in everyday life. These workshops are designed to creatively teach anatomy through visual and hands-on work as well as movement. While looking at the area of interest we will continually come back to the relationship of the parts in the overall design.
It's important to understand that we are designed for ease and beautiful upright movement so that you can begin to unravel patterns of tension and find a better relationship to gravity and the world.
Functional Anatomy and Movement Exploration
Functional anatomy is a way to learn anatomy through touch, visuals, books, skeletons and the exploration of our own movement. As a dancer my first anatomy workshops were from Irene Dowd and this led fed my curiosity about anatomy. Not just the understanding of the joints and muscles but how we are designed to move. As an Alexander Teacher I have continued to fuel my interest in both understanding and teaching anatomy teaching anatomy courses on several Yoga Teacher Training Programs and creating workshops around areas of exploration. If you would like to discuss an anatomy course for your group or training please contact me at westchesterat.com.
