If you teach yoga or if you’ve ever felt like a teacher was not teaching to you based on your body’s size or other needs, omg I hope you will listen. Amber Karnes, Francesca Cervero thank u !

Yoga Anatomy Academy

How does Functional Movement relate to Yoga? Well, for one, we need to be able to get on & off the floor (duh!) and for two, we need to stop worrying so much about precise, detailed alignment in fancy poses, and consider so much more our natural fluidity in day to day life.

Can you squat, half squat, stand from ground sitting without using your hands? Comfortably assume various ground positions for an hour? It’s wild, but many YOGIS struggle with these basic moves. I’m here to save the day: Fluidity and Function comes to Project Yoga Richmond on Saturday.(3-6pm), Posterior Chain Awakening comes to Grace. in Silver Spring, MD April 8. And if you are just tight: join me in Way of the Happy Fascia near U St. DC on March 18th (sign up for that is via eventbrite). All links should be found at
