Anatomy: The Diaphragms

with Ellen Mossman
Saturday, Sept. 27, 2-5:30pm, $55

What are our diaphragms? Where are they? And why do we care? Working from our diaphragms brings ease, expansion, and alignment to our yoga practice from the inside out. This accessible anatomy workshop focuses on our primary diaphragms—the pelvic, respiratory, thoracic, and cranial. We’ll explore these structures using images, models, breathwork, and asana, integrating our new anatomical knowledge into embodied experience.

“Anatomy does not have to be daunting. I love anatomy and love seeing students transition from fear or feeling overwhelmed by the topic to finding their own excitement and genuine interest.” —Ellen
