She teaches at Paxson Yoga Center, a combined yoga studio and physical therapy practice in Portland, Oregon, as well as teaching workshops throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. Additionally, she wrote the Yoga Journal column, ‘Anatomy of a Yogi’ for several years.

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.

Call or email now to reserve your spot in the weekend workshop; limited spaces are available. This workshop is appropriate for Paxson Yoga Center students Level 3 and above. It will provide a rich learning opportunity for yoga teachers and teacher trainees and is a good way to deepen your yoga practice if you are not a yoga teacher.

This will be an active workshop and therefore is not appropriate for students with acute injuries or significantly limited mobility.
