BandhaYoga Workshop with Ray Long, MD


  • Yoga Gallery & Kansas City School of Classical Ballet 7342 West 80th Street Overland Park, KS, 66204 United States (map)

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE

Once again Ray Long, MD will enlighten us about the new and exciting procedures and research in osteopathic surgeries that helps us as yoga teachers to serve our clients and students, while sharing fundamentals as he always does when he comes to visit us in Kansas City. The schedule will be refined as we get closer, but it is highly recommended that you attend the entire workshop as the sessions tend to build on each other. Anyone can apply for continuing education credit and receive a completion certificate to file with Yoga Alliance or any other registration body. 

Human anatomy and physiology is a vast subject, as is the art of yoga. Nevertheless, combining knowledge from both fields is extremely beneficial to the yoga practitioner. Athletes can improve their performance and experience fewer injuries through a basic understanding of their musculoskeletal system. Similarly, yoga practitioners can benefit from the application of Western science to their practice development.

Join Ray Long and Chris Macivor for a weekend journey into the body. This workshop is not just about anatomy and yoga, but about the inter-connections within our body. This year, Ray Long will be introducing more therapeutic applications to his practice and will have even more cutting edge technology through which to gain wisdom and understanding about the amazing body and yoga.

Yoga Therapy will be the highlight of this interactive workshop. More details will be posted soon.

We hope you will join us for this experience.  Come prepared to practice, with yoga mat, any needed personal props and a container with lid for water. Please refrain from using strong smelling lotions or perfumes as they can cause allergic reactions.
