Advanced Studies: Anatomy Courses
Embodied Anatomy & Kinesiology
with Amy Matthews
Fridays 1:00 - 3:30pm
This course travels through the body addressing structure and movement from an experiential perspective, using principles from Body-Mind Centering, Laban Movement Analysis and the Bartenieff Fundamentals, PNF and various yoga practices to discuss principles of alignment and therapeutic applications.
In alternate years we will focus on different systems - in the first year we will focus on the bones, joints and ligaments that provide support, allow movement, and transmit weight and force through space. In the second year we will focus on the muscular system and how it creates, modulates and refines our movement choices.
In both years, each trimester covers a different part of the body: The fall session focuses on the spine, the winter session focuses on the lower limb (foot to pelvis) and the spring session on the upper limb (hand to scapula).
Class involves both discussion and movement - any level of movement ability is welcome, and no previous yoga experience is necessary. Each trimester is a self-contained unit that can be taken separately, and the course can be started at the beginning of any trimester. There are no prerequisites for this course.
The A&K Asana class is based on the topic that is being taught in the Embodied A&K class, and is an opportunity to see how that material can be integrated into an asana practice. You can drop into this class without attending the previous Embodied A&K class.
