FUNCTIONAL YOGA ANATOMY AND ALIGNMENT TRAINING
with Carol Murphy
@ Yoga Moves, Gort, Galway.
This 4 day CPD training is designed for yoga teachers that want to deepen their knowledge of the body. It explores myofascial trains in relation to functional movement and postural dysfunctions. It looks at the body synergistically addressing referral patterns, which explain why wrist issues can often start at the neck and feet, knees, and shoulder issues can sometimes be sourced at the pelvis etc. It also offers a manual of yoga and myofascial release programmes for various postural dysfunctions, including things like dropped arches, valgus knee, pelvic tilt. scoliosis etc. This training also addresses emotions, stress and trauma in relation to fascia and nervous system responses, offering pranayama programmes to help create balance and restoration.
In addition to teaching yoga for 22 years, Carol Murphy is also a qualified Neuro-muscular therapist, which is a form of physical therapy that acknowledges fascial trains and referral patterns. She is fascinated with where anatomy meets alignment and is in the process of finishing up writing a book on this subject. On this training, Carol combines her neuro-muscualar, fascial matrix, anatomy and yoga alignment knowledge to work with common compensation patterns. She also uses pranayama, somatic meditations and yin poses to address the stress response and how it manifests physically in the body.
