The Deepest Layers: The Nervous System, Skeletal Range, and Basic Biomechanics

with Alexandria Crow

We will begin this intensive by reviewing how the nervous system affects the body and its range of motion. This portion of the intensive will include at least an hour-long physical asana practice where students will set a baseline for their personal range of motion and skeletal structure both before and after they transition their nervous system into the parasympathetic system. This asana practice will be followed with a lecture and diagnostic lab where we will look at the basic biomechanics of all the joint regions in the body in relation to the most common shapes performed in a yoga class, discuss the general amount of range that can be expected out of each joint region, and talk about what to do if there are limitations.

This intensive is appropriate for yogis of all levels of practice experience.
