Grace Jull, MA, LMT, has been leading transformational workshops in the realms of anatomy, yoga, and massage since 1986. She is adjunct faculty in various mind-body medicine programs, including the Harvard Rehabilitation Medicine Residency, Cirque de Soleil's Inuit Intervention, Saybrook University's doctorate program, and Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. Grace also co-founded the transformational Shakti-Initiation yoga leadership training in Bali, Indonesia. Described as “the Mary Oliver of the Yoga Mat,” Grace is a poetic, passionate teacher whose enthusiasm and awe awaken the same in her students. Last time Grace taught at All That Matters, once student said, “I have never before encountered an instructor who loves anatomy so much as Grace, and teaches it in such a way that now I love love love it.”
Grace Jull instructs the following:
Anatomy, Asana, and Awe
Join Grace Jull, anatomy specialist and former Scholar in Residence at Kripalu Center, for an illuminating journey of the inner terrain through anatomy, asana, and awe. Grace draws on her background training yoga teachers and massage therapists – as well as her own studies in osteopathy and embryology – to deliver a unique and inspired view of the body and yoga as a passionate encounter with Prana (breath or life force).
Through lecture, hands-on exercises, and a rich asana practice (yoga postures class), explore:
• key bones and muscles that influence our ease and expression, on and off the mat
• how the joints of the hip, spine, and shoulders can find optimal positioning in asanas
• how muscles work, and how they can hold memory and find freedom
• how fascia deeply influences our personal expressions of asana.
Yoga students and teachers alike will benefit from this exploration, and will leave with a greater compassion, capacity, and curiosity in discovering our body’s full potential.
Note: Wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to move!
We will take an early afternoon lunch break.
This workshop is part of our 200-hour Pranotthan Yoga Teacher Training, and includes both students from the public and students in the teacher training.
