FUNCTIONAL ANATOMY OF YOGASANA
An experiential Workshop – Union of Yoga and Science
Why Functional Anatomy ?
- Functional Anatomy of Yoga will assist you in reaching new heights in your yoga practice using the laboratory of the body and the tools of yoga asana.
- You will get know about optimal alignments of human body. When the body is moving closely toward or in optimal alignment there is increased freedom of movement in the joints and more available energy in the body, since the body is not fighting itself and can thus move freely. Pain is also greatly reduced or eliminated when the bones and tissues of the body are in a cooperative relationship.
- The ability to perform asana may vary greatly, depending on factors such as bone structure, previous injuries, age, energy level, and ardency of the student. Approaching asana practice as a discipline of mindfulness and non-violence (especially to the practitioner) is a fundamental starting point to a pain-free practice. This Functional Anatomy program helps you to understand this concepts.
What you will Learn in this Course?
The Basics of Functional Anatomy- How you can avoid injury while practicing Yoga
The lack of information about the human body in our years of education is startling since it is our home for our entire lifetime. It seems we either think that the body is too simple and too “physical” to warrant attention, or that it is so complex that it is reserved for medical students. In fact, it is both. It is very simple, and everyone can understand body principles and learn the names of bones, muscles, and organs. It is also the most complex living form. The study of the human body involves both mystery and fact: there is much that is known and equally as much that is left unknown. This paradox suggests that we need to value both the information and the questions about what it means to be human.
Principles of Yogasana Practice – The original concept and techniques of asanas
The original concept and techniques of asanas, as was used in the tradition of yoga, are distorted. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the basic concept of asanas and their purpose in the whole scheme of yoga which is otherwise very much overlooked.
Physiology of Yogasana
Discussing many basic aspects of physiology and then applying these ideas to the practice of the yogasanas, as well as pointing out many phenomena well known to yogis, for which western medicine has only a feeble explanation.
The Knee Anatomy – Asanas for healthy and flexible knee
This unit takes an indepth look at a very complex part of the human anatomy, the knee joint. There are numerous structures that are found in this joint, classified as a diarthrodial or synovial joint. Study of this area must include a review of the skeletal and muscular systems in order to see how they interact under normal use. Some knee injuries and the pathological will be considered.
The Hip Anatomy – Practices for Hip joints
Hip joint is technically known as acetabulo femoral joint (occurs between acetabulum and femur). It is a synovial ball and socket joint that occurs between head of femur and acetabulum of hip bone. Its primary function is to make the legs mobile without weakening the ability to support the weight of human body in both static and dynamic postures. Hip joints are most important factors in maintaining balance of body. Any deformity of these joints may result in serious consequences for human posture.
The Spin Anatomy – Keep your back Healthy
The spinal column — also known as the spine or backbone — protects the delicate nerve tissue of the spinal cord.
Yogic Anatomy – Asanas how it penetrate the layers
Yogis believe that each individual is capable of connecting with divinity, but in order to open that connection, one must be able to penetrate these layers Chakras,Nadis, Koshas. the five layers, or sheaths, of a person’s being and to get to the deepest part of one’s soul. By doing so, it is said that one will find bliss and oneness with the universe. The practice of yoga is one way in which we can delve deeper into ourselves and penetrate these layers to reveal a more enlightened version of ourselves.
Anatomy in Ayurveda – find out Asanas for your body types
Asana for particular dosa is very effective practice to guard against any potential imbalances, for example backbends. Forceful or quickly done full backbends can cause major vata aggravation with severe strain to the nervous system perphaps more than any other asana. Gentle partial backbends are great for reducing vata that accumulates in the upper back and shoulders.
Each asana family, like standing Yoga poses, forward bends, or inverted postures, has general benefits for the body as a whole and its overall movement potential. Each asana family exercises certain muscles and organs that, as part of our entire bodily structure, should not be neglected. To counter any tendencies toward imbalance, you should select Yoga poses within each asana family that are better for your body type than others within the same group. All the main muscle groups in the body are represented in the Yoga practice at least several days each week.
Similarly, that an asana is good for a particular dosha doesn’t mean all persons of that doshic type should do it. It means that the asana can be good for them if done in the right way and if they are physically capable of it. Each asana also has its degree of difficulty that may require certain warm up or preparatory Yoga postures to approach it safely. For example, the right preparation for a headstand creates the arm and shoulder musculature needed to sustain a good and safe head balance. Because a headstand is good for your doshic type doesn’t mean that you should simply jump into the posture or can do it without possible side effects.
