Anatomy Deep Dive

Anatomy Deep Dive

w Kim Carter

"I have a sharp pain at the top of my hamstring."
"My hips are so tight."
"I don't understand why I can't stick my handstand."

All things you might hear from a student. What do you say?
Most likely there's a nice reasonable response... but do you really understand what might be happening for them?

The Anatomy Deep Dive is your local opportunity to learn about the moving body so that you can better understand your practice and your student's. You will have further understanding of how we all stem from the same matrix, but have individual movement patterns that can directly impact our yoga practice. This workshop is composed of both instructional and experiential learning.

Kim Carter is back in the house for this two part, four module workshop. Sign-up for one or, we recommend all, to have a deep understanding of the anatomical movement of the body.
