Functional Anatomy Workshop

Are you curious about what is happening throughout your body when you are practicing yoga? Have you been wanting a better understanding about how muscles, bones and energy work together to allow you to get the most from your practice? Are you a yoga teacher looking to refresh your knowledge of anatomy and physiology? Join Dave Garza for an educational and interactive workshop delving into anatomical subjects such as:

How soft tissue works in the body (muscles, tendons, ligaments).
Anatomical terminology for direction and movement.
Soft tissue interaction with the skeletal structure.
A closer look at a comprehensive list of muscles with regard to location, function and names.
And the ever popular, much more!

Our exploration of the body will be shared through discussion, observation, digital presentation, hands on palpation and feeling all of this in your own body moving through several key asanas. We will also be using the book “Yoga Anatomy” by Leslie Kaminoff as our main reference text.

All levels welcome, from those new to yoga, those who teach yoga, as well as seasoned practitioners.

Saturday April 29th 8.30am-11.30am and 2pm-6pm
Sunday April; 30th 8.30am-11.30am and 1.30pm -5.30pm

Cost for weekend anatomy workshop $180

Bio: Dave Garza

I have been practicing massage professionally since 1994 and instructing yoga students, massage therapists and other health care professionals since 1997. Studying physical anatomy continually helps me in my understanding of our mind body unity, and is a main driving force motivating the classes I facilitate.

A long student of yoga, I have completed teacher trainings with Mathew Sweeney (Ashtanga) and Mark Whitwell (Ha-Tha yoga) I have drawn my most influential guidance and inspiration for my anatomy workshops from Leslie Kaminoff, David Keil, Erik Dalton and Tom Myers, and of course, years of experience through practice.

I am board certified with the NCBTMB (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork) and am a certified Myoskelatal Therapist with the Freedom From Pain Institute. I maintain a full time massage practice in San Diego, Ca.

If I am not doing bodywork, yoga, or teaching, I spend time on my mountain bike, engaging in often lengthy philosophical discussions, and lying around the floor.
