The Language of Anatomy I w/ Rich Logan

In this workshop, the first of a five-part series, we will move from a cosmological perspective to the introspective view of the yoga practitioner. We will ask the question “What are we?” and begin to understand the answer to that question on a physical level.

About the event

What are we made of? It is important for yoga teachers to familiarize themselves with the basic language of anatomy and to start to grasp what is holding us together. In this workshop, the first of a five-part series, we will move from a cosmological perspective to the introspective view of the yoga practitioner. We will ask the question “What are we?” and begin to understand the answer to that question on a physical level.

This workshop will provide a healthy balance of experiential activity and lecture for students. Topics of discussion will include, but are not limited to: general kinesiology, planes of the body, muscular terminology, connective tissue, bone structure, and how being “comfortable” isn’t always healthy.

Join celebrated Chicago yogi and anatomy fanatic Rich Logan on this journey through muscle, bone and connective tissue. Register for this session or all five sessions in the Language of Anatomy series.
