Anatomy Weekend


Weekend Workshop with Julie Gudmestad in Portland, Oregon

Saturday & Sunday, May 2 – 3, 2020

JULIE HAS TAUGHT this popular workshop at studios and conferences throughout the US, Canada, and Europe, and we are thrilled to offer it for the first time right here in Portland. For those who haven’t been able to attend the weeklong August anatomy intensive, this is an opportunity to take one section of the five-day intensive.

INSPIRE AND DEEPEN YOUR YOGA PRACTICE by studying anatomy with Julie Gudmestad. During this series we will focus on one area at a time, starting by seeing and feeling bones, joints, and muscles. Then we will bring anatomy to life by practicing poses that strengthen and stretch the highlighted muscles. The asana practice will build from easy to more challenging poses. Everyone will be encouraged to work at their own pace, with ample time for questions.

Anatomy can be fun!

We will:

Use lecture, demonstration and asana practice to support your learning.

Use and practice anatomical language to help deepen your understanding of human movement patterns.

Study how muscle imbalances can contribute to pain and disrupt the injury healing process.

Suggest poses and sequences to help make progress with challenging poses.
