Deane Juhan eloquently brings alive and makes accessible and intriguing the subjects of anatomy and physiology. These workshops allow us to develop new images and new language in order to more deeply understand the anatomical, physiological, and philosophical aspects of the body-mind.

These workshops are designed to address the particular needs and concerns of bodyworkers of all kinds: yoga teachers and students, pilates and movement instructors and students, and any one interested in understanding more about the body.


Core Structures of our Bodies and Core Processes of Our Minds: What is the anatomy of our core physical structures—our primary support system?

  • How can we create a more functional core support system in our bones and musculature both in yoga practice and daily life?
  • What are the core elements of our psyches (felt experience of self, habituated patterns, beliefs and perpetuated behaviors?
  • How can we train and nurture more balanced and mindful core supports of body and mind?
