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.
The Feet: How We Establish Grounding and Balance: Our feet are our direct connection to the Earth and the platforms of our complex bipedal balancing act.
The price that we have paid for the immensely creative use of our arms and hands has been the great responsibility thrown upon our feet for support, balance and locomotion. To serve us well they need to be exquisitely sensitive, extraordinarily strong, and consciously supported in their alignment and development.
We will look in detail at the anatomy and function of the feet; discuss their roles in yoga and other movement modalities, and their treatment with massage therapy.
