MetaAnatomy 100- Hour Training
You are so much more than the sum of your parts!
Anatomy & Physiology, Therapeutics, Comparative Anatomy and Energy of a Yogi
Now take one class, module, or full training
Are you a fellow anatomy geek who wants to talk about the glorious gracilis in all of its beautiful details? Are you wondering if you (or your students) have the skeleton that will ever allow full lotus pose? Does the digestive system send you into an excited tizzy? Do you want to learn how to create an anatomically meaningful and safe class while inspiring people to connect to their own energetic bodies?
Then this is the investment you have been looking for!
Each day in the MetaAnatomy 100 hour training we will immerse ourselves in a gross (meaning large, not yucky) anatomical lecture. Using real bone specimens and hands on "body testing" we will impart concrete ways to help assess the differences in our own (and our students) skeletal anatomy. We will look at common injuries and ways to work with all students in a meaningful and safe way. And what makes this training so unique is that each day will also include the poetic energetic correlation to each structure and a full and fulfilling asana and meditation class that weaves it all together.
Join me for what I promise will be a deep, informative and fun exploration of all things MetaAnatomy!

My personal practice has been as deeply influenced as my teaching. This woman is a Glorious Goddess of Goofiness!" - Sheilagh

"Kristin Leal's unique voice masterfully marries the amazing, physical inner working of the human with our own experience of the landscape. MetaAnatomy profoundly points out that we have no divisions, no boundaries, no limits except the ones we impose upon ourselves and others. Our bodies are truly temples, places of sanctuary and comfort." - Andréa
