Anatomy & Physiology Class Series
Anatomy & Physiology Class Series at the Iyengar Yoga Center of Grand Rapids
with Chelsea Tiernan, Ph.d. in Neuroscience, and instructor at GVSU in anatomy and physiology, and Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher, Iyengar Yoga Practitioner since 2004. The classes will cover the anatomy and physiology topics first from the Iyengar Yoga Certification Syllabi. All interested students/teachers from any tradition and background are welcomed.
#3 Anatomy of the Shoulder
Asana with a focus on the Shoulder: 10am - 11:30am taught by Jennifer Beaumont, Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher at the Intermediate Jr. III level (use your class pass or drop-in/ $18)
Anatomy of the Shoulder: 1pm - 3pm taught by Chelsea Tiernan, Ph.d., Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher, and assisted by Jennifer Beaumont
The shoulder is the most mobile, but also one of the most unstable joints in the body. This class will explore the structure and function of the three articulations that compose the shoulder. We will study the movements permitted at these articulations in asana, with an emphasis on enhancing stability through the full range of shoulder movements.
Register for one or both sessions. It's ok to snack on food or drink in between sessions or during the anatomy workshop (not the morning Asana class).
