Unpacking Downward Facing Dog through Experiential Anatomy

**Note: The first class (5/13) will be held at our Mississippi location. All other classes will be at NE Killingsworth.

Join Wendy and Suniti for an in-depth experience of downward facing dog. We will embody our skeletal structure to understand its role in asana. By virtue of the bones knowing themselves alignment becomes dynamic and not a formula, the complexity of form clarifies. We will learn to reference our personal experience and develop a felt sense of ones own body. Through movement, models, pictures and touch students will bring clarity and relationship to downward facing dog. What is discovered will be applied to a wide range of poses.

May 13th – legs and pelvis (at Mississippi location)
May 20th – shoulders and arms
June 3rd– spine
June 10th– putting it all together

Cost: $140 for all 4; $40 per class
