List of Stan’s Sessions
The Segmentalness of the Spine
[A] On The Mat / Asana Class
This is a 2 hour lecture/asana class dealing with the spine as a structure with 24 vertebrae, a sacrum and coccyx. Each segment rotates within three planes of rotation. The western spine unfortunately develops patterns of tension and patterns of collapse, and eventually joint pathology especially in the triad of the lumbar facets, sacroiliac and acetabulum joints. There are relative flexibilities// inflexibilities. The human biped form can benefit greatly from the Hatha Yoga skills of grounding, centering, and lifting. I will teach basic asanas from the biomechanical perspective of the segmentalness of the spine.
[A] On The Mat / Asana Class
This 2 hour lecture/asana class will review the three-dimensional movements of the sacrum in synergy with the spine and the ilial movements in synergy with the legs. The often-ignored sacro-ilial joints will be showcased as a very common joint pathology exacerbated by asana as well as everyday posture and movement. The skills of centering or stabilizing the pelvis will be taught as an integral part of asana.
