EARTH ANATOMY

From the Feet to the Pelvic Floor

with Richard George

Saturday March 24th  1 – 5pm

YAPTA Event for Yoga Teachers

Join me for hands-on Training specifically for Yoga Teachers that combines the subtle teachings of chakras with the anatomical structure

So… what is earth anatomy?

Practical exploration of the bones and muscles in the feet and legs and how they relate to the energetic qualities of the first chakra and Moola Bandha.

We’ve all seen the anatomy in books but have we really felt it? Through the use of experiential anatomy, props and anatomical study, you will leave this workshop with a greater understanding of how the physical anatomy allows the subtle chakra teachings to weave their magic.

Topics include:

– Foot and leg anatomy
– The Spiral energetics of the legs
– Experiencing and teaching moola bandha
– Integrating Mooladhara chakra into classes
– 2 Practical session: Awakening the Feet (Pada Bandha) and Moola Bandha
– Simple foot activating sequences to teach your students.

As yoga teachers, most classes are asana focused, so it’s important to understand the complexity of the physical structure in order to weave chakra philosophy effortlessly into teaching.

The arches of the feet are sometimes known as Pada bandhas, which directly influence Moola Bandha (the pelvic floor), which becomes the foundation of all core awareness training. For most students the feet have lost their ability to feed information to the structure of the body, due to overuse of shoes or lack of awareness – it’s time to get students to wake up their feet again!

The legs not only distribute weight from the pelvis into the earth, but also have the ability to feed information back up from the ground into the sacrum, effecting the positioning of the spine. The complex structures of the legs mean that energy can both spiral up and down the legs simultaneously.
