Harshly judging one’s range of motion is one of the greatest sources of unnecessary suffering in most people’s yoga practice. Although some challenges in postures are related to tight muscles or contracted joint tissues – many limitations are actually due to variations in bone shapes and joint orientations that can differ dramatically from one person to the next. Understanding YOUR yoga anatomy is best learned through direct hands on experience – testing your bones/joints and comparing them curiously with others.
This comparative anatomy workshop explores 14 major joints of the body that account for most of our yoga postures. For each joint we will perform bone range of motions tests on ourselves and on each other and then demonstrate how each varying joint will express itself in specific yoga postures.
Anatomy is a vast subject, but this playful, interactive workshop will reveal the basics in a way that clarifies and simplifies the yoga practice – putting the attention back where it belongs – how the key action of each pose makes you feel energetically. In this workshop, participants often experience an “ah-ha” moment about their body and their practice, which can be powerfully liberating and self-accepting.
This workshop is great for beginners and experienced practitioners alike!

Massage is a profound way for partners to support one another through loving touch. Using touch in both harmonious and challenging times can contribute to more vibrancy and serenity in our work, play, sleep, sexuality, and communication.
