Workshop Overview

The pelvis is at the center of the body. It is also at the center of our movements, on and off the yoga mat. However, asana is often taught with more of a focus on the spinal column or peripheral joints and structures. When we learn to move from the pelvis however, everything changes.

In this four-hour online course, we will focus on the pelvis, its anatomy and energetic importance to our lives through lecture and practice. We will study the part the pelvis plays in creating yoga poses, including standing poses, backbends, forward bends, twists and inversions. We will question with an open mind and heart some of the assumptions we make about the pelvis, and how we as teachers can open to a new way of seeing the pelvis and its potential in asana. We will also explore the dance called “walking”, and the understanding that Eastern and Western cultures teach people to walk differently. We will also explore what physical and emotional consequences are associated with the way we walk.

Judith will lead us in a practice as we learn.
