Understanding Your Body's Unique Structure and Biomechanics

Jenna Switzer - SA4SWI

In this workshop students will explore how each body is truly unique in its physical structure and therefore how it can move. From the shape of our bones to the tension in our tissues, our biomechanics will affect the way we practice asana, sit in meditation, and breathe for pranyama. This workshop will give students a better understanding of their body's unique abilities, anatomy, and physiology as well as empower them in their physical practice. During this workshop we will trace scapulas and clavicles on volunteers with washable markers so we can see the different shapes visually. In partners, we will also explore the hip passive range of motion to demonstrate the structural differences in the hip. Handouts would include a brief introduction to each area to be discussed before exploring the bodies in the room.
