- Yoga Medicine: Anatomy, Asana & Therapeutics
YOGA MEDICINE: Moving into Grace
Anatomy, Asana, and Therapeutics with Kate Case
Not all bodies are created equal and our yoga practice (no matter what style) – if integrated holistically as a path of health, wellbeing, and healing – should reflect and embrace our uniqueness.
This 10 hour training is designed for yoga teachers, trainees, and experienced yoga practitioners to experience first-hand a practical and functional understanding of the interconnectedness of the body.
Through the kosha (layers of the body) system, tap into the inherent wisdom and profound intelligence of the body while moving into deeper levels of Grace.
Teachers learn the art of teaching people instead of poses, and students learn how to create a practice suited to your personal needs, through modification, therapeutics, and adjustments.
●Bones, joints, and common injuries
●Muscles and connective tissue
●Major systems of the body: musculoskeletal, nervous, respiratory, endocrine, lymphatic, and circulatory
●How to lessen wear and tear on feet, knees, hips, pelvis, back, shoulders, wrists
●Shifting pathways of chronic misalignment to safe, effective, and healthy alignment
●Major yoga therapy principles and how to apply them
●Adapting a yoga practice (not just asana) to suit an individual’s unique constitution (dosha)
●Biomechanics of yoga asana and freedom of movement
Kate’s yoga journey began in 1998. Soon after her first class, she took one year of training through the Yoga Association of Alberta and in 1999, she completed a second year of training through the Gerda Kerbs Hatha Yoga Centre. Kate continued her fascination of the body through her Thai massage training in 2000. Her unique insight into the healing power of yoga stems from a fatal diagnosis when Kate was born with a rare illness; she has overcome a his-tory of eating disorders and severe anxiety, and continues to manage a major knee injury.
Kate has a burgeoning private practice. She also works out of one of Edmonton’s top physio-therapy clinics, and is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. Kate’s enthusiasm for life-long learning led her to over 50+ hours of training with international senior yoga teacher Judith Hanson Lasater; and to Mount Royal University’s 500 hour Yoga Therapy certification (complete in June 2014).
