Sunday, July 11, 2021
USA Time Zones: 8 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Central, 6 p.m. Mountain, 5 p.m. Pacific
Presenter: Ellen Saltonstall, Anusara Subject Matter Specialist
Topic: Teaching Therapeutic Applications Concerning Hands and Wrists

With the publication of Therapeutic Applications of Anusara Yoga: A Teacher’s Guide, the Anusara community now has a comprehensive source of information that can enrich every class or private session. Though we recognize that Anusara Yoga is always therapeutic, it is fun and productive to look at therapeutic solutions more closely as we develop ways to help our students. 

Ellen will review the structure of Part V of the Manual, the actual application and teaching methodology. Part V includes 9 sections, one for each part of the body, with essential information and a list of poses to teach.  We will look specifically at the toolbox for the wrists and hands as an example, and clarify the techniques that are listed in the toolbox, including the rationale and key intentions for each one.

Ellen will teach some ballwork techniques for this part of the body, using balls that are easily available online. We will also discuss future offerings in therapeutics, with the goal of spreading this information throughout the global Anusara community. 

With a recognition that we are called to serve for the highest good, together, we’ll explore ideas to find Grace and beauty in this moment as we enjoy community, connection, and collaboration.
