Spine & Torso- online asana course – Beginners/Therapeutic student edition
April 4, 2021 @ 8:00 am - June 4, 2021 @ 5:00 pm435USD
Online course for those newer to Anusara Yoga or wanting a therapeutic approach
This 8 week course is a systematic and focused exploration of the intrinsic stability and mobility within the spine and torso. The goal is an overall increase in self awareness and agency within our movement and action. Our study includes tools such as anatomy and biomechanics, short sequences and unlocking movements, Sanksrit study and more to deepen our exploration.
While we focus on one part of the body, we will remain tethered to the wholeness that Yoga reveals.
Course Outline for Apr- June 2021:
Part 1: Low back and abdominal core, including the pelvic floor, a 4 week exploration
Part 2: Upper Spine and breath structures, including the shoulders, neck and head, a 4 week exploration
Each 4 week exploration begins with re-awakening optimal joint range and intrinsic muscle support and ultimately leads to exploring how this area of the body is pivotal to the wellbeing and full expression of the body as a whole. Practical and accessible contemplations and yoga teachings are introduced that accompany the work and give our embodied life a deeper meaning.
Each week begins on Sunday morning with the posting of the week’s self-guided materials on the website. Engage with them at a pace that works for you.
Each week includes a session on Fridays 12:30-1:45pm Eastern Time (East Coast USA). These will either be a live, interactive yoga class, a Q&A session or personal contemplation assignment (that can also be done with a partner from the program). Everyone will receive recordings of these lives events, so if you are not available to attend live, you can watch freely at your own time, again and again.

Julia Pearring, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, CATT supports students in the exploration of their optimal range, to uncover the strength and potential of a deeper alignment no matter their range of movement. Her advanced studies have included extensive anatomy, kinesiology and physiology training through cadaver dissections with Gil Hedley, explorations of Body Mind Centering and Laban Movement analysis with Amy Matthews plus fascial research with Tom Myers, and more. Her integration of these wide ranged studies with the principles of Anusara yoga organically built a thriving private therapeutic yoga practice. She strongly believes that an active sadhana, basing one’s personal practice on committed self inquiry and compassionate process, is invaluable for yoga teachers and practitioners.
Julia lives in NYC. Teaching since 2008, she is a sought after teacher and teacher trainer. Recently, she co-wrote the new Therapeutic Applications of Anusara Yoga Teacher’s Guide.
