Continuing Ed: Anatomy Gross Body says
The focus of this module will be on the structures and movements of the spine, the muscles of breath and the anatomy and physiology of inhalation and exhalation. We will focus on a deeper understanding of the five directions of movement of the spine and the roles of breath, muscles, structure and functional mechanics within each.

Guest Teacher: Trevor Hawkins
Trevor came to understand the benefits and beauty of yoga while living abroad in Europe. As a travel guide and photographer, he spent the majority of his time in Spain guiding small group hikes into Pyrenees valleys, villages and castles, kayaking the cliffs, caves and coves of the Costa Brava and diving full force into the culture and cityscapes throughout Western Europe and North Africa. Through a natural progression of thought and being, he began to recognize the beauty and universal nature of people, space and motion. He began to inquire deeper into the connections of movement and breath through practicing Yin and Ashtanga yoga. After several years, he decided to return to his roots in Encinitas, California and deepen his study.

Through serendipitous connections and relationships with the amazing Yoga community in North County San Diego, Trevor began to expand his understanding of the philosophical, spiritual and physical teachings of Yoga. He has immersed himself in thousands of hours of intense study and practice with emphasis in the Viniyoga as well as the Ashtanga Vinyasa, Anusara and Yin yoga traditions. His ongoing study of Yoga as Therapy through Gray Kraftsow and the American Viniyoga Institute and his planned 2018 International certification as a Yoga Therapist is bringing him to deeper levels of understanding, awareness and connection. Through the tradition of Viniyoga’s emphasis on Breath Centric Asana, Pranayama, Mantra, Meditation and Chant, Trevor is able to help others influence, impact and change their lives on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels

Trevor teaches locally and internationally and continues to bring his belief that a healthy body and a peaceful mind are the central reasons to seek and maintain a vibrant yoga practice. He brings great enthusiasm and passion to his teaching, guiding and sharing and blends his deep passion for life, culture, movement, art, music, food and nature seamlessly to create a safe, sacred space where the student can deepen profoundly into their body, mind, and heart.

Participants enrolled in individual modules only need attend 9:45pm-4:15pm and may attend a 8:30am group yoga practice free of charge.
