MetaAnatomy 100 HR Therapeutic Training with Kristin Leal

February 27 - March 3

| $150 - $1750 | REGISTER

Kristin-Leal-AnatomyYou are more than the sum of your parts!

Each day in the MetaAnatomy 100-Hour Therapeutic training, we will immerse ourselves in a gross (meaning large, not yucky) anatomical lecture. Using real bone specimens and hands-on “body testing” we will impart concrete ways to help assess the differences in our own (and our students) skeletal anatomy. We will look at common injuries and ways to work with all students in a meaningful and safe way. And what makes these workshops so unique is that each day will also include yummy self care techniques, poetic energetic correlations to each structure and a full and fulfilling therapeutic asana and meditation class that weaves it all together.

Join us for what promises to be a deep, informative and fun exploration of all things MetaAnatomy!

  • Learn major muscles and joint structures of the body
  • Develop X-ray vision! Using hands on techniques discover what is bony compression (that ain’t moving) or muscular tension (eventually might be moveable)
  • Discover why no two students will ever experience the same yoga posture in the same way
  • View real human bone specimens to gain a deeper awareness of our inner architecture
  • Delve into the digestive, nervous, endocrine and circulatory systems of the body
  • Refine your language and verbal cues to be a more thoughtful, accessible and skillful teacher
  • Richen your view of the form by learning the energetic correlations of each structure
  • Learn self care and therapy techniques to help free tension and speed healing
  • Enjoy a full asana, pranayama and meditation practice that weaves together what you’ve learned
  • Celebrate your amazing form in a community full of dedicated, light-hearted and supportive yogis!
