With Scott Anderson
When we think of connective tissue, our thoughts generally turn to tendons and ligaments. While we don't often hear about fascia, it's the connective tissue that literally holds our bodies together. Without the integrity of fascia, our bodies wouldn't have their familiar shape, form or functionality. In this workshop, you will learn what fascia is, and how it transmits forces from one part of the body to another. Using easy-to-learn yoga techniques, you will develop a strategy to release long-standing bio-mechanical restrictions, and gain insight into the wisdom of the yoga poses.
Scott began practicing yoga as a teenager and refined his practice through his years as a college student/athlete. With a background in physics and biomechanics, Scott deeply explores the logic of the body's anatomical structures and its systems. Scott studied with Hatha Yoga masters Dona Holleman and Ramanand Patel, and spent six years studying intensively with Roger Eischens. By working closely with master teachers, Scott came to recognize the human body as a microcosm of the greater natural world, which inspires his creative and grounded teaching presence.
In addition to Scott’s extensive yoga training, he is also a certified bodyworker and Pilates instructor. Through Zero Balancing (ZB) training, Scott developed greater insight into the workings of the skeleton and how the bones influence the rest of the organism. Through his extensive Pilates training, Scott has deepened his understanding of the body's core and its contribution to wellness and vitality.
Scott is also a dedicated student of the meditation master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. He is a Facilitator within the Tergar community, where he facilitates in-person and online Joy of Living meditation programs.
Scott is currently working on an MS at the University of Wisconsin - Madison in the field of Kinesiology, with plans to pursue a Ph.D degree. His research interests include Yoga interventions for those on the autism spectrum.
