Embody your anatomy through Eagle-Vail yoga workshop
Ryan Summerlin April 17, 2013
EAGLE-VAIL -Starting April 24, certified yoga teacher Brooke Hamblet will lead a series of anatomy workshops at Revolution Power Yoga for yoga students and teachers. Anatomy classes are not all what they used to be. There is only so much you can learn from coloring a textbook and memorizing lengthy science terms. Form and function of the human body can be highlighted in a lecture, but to dig a little deeper is to move through each lesson with a life-long teaching tool: your body. Certified yoga teacher Brooke Hamblet, visiting from her studio, Indigo Yoga Texas, in Fort Worth, will lead workshops at Revolution Power Yoga for anyone who is looking to embody their anatomy. “These workshops will leave students with solid, basic and intelligent concepts about how anatomy applies in yoga,” said Rachel Nelson, studio co-owner and certified yoga teacher. “You will learn to embody yoga anatomy through practice, lecture and fun.” Nelson said the workshops are open to everyone, and current yoga teachers can use them as an investment towards teaching, as well as Yoga Alliance continuing education credits.
