I’m thrilled to be going to this training with the amazing Padmasri at my Yoga home, Yogaville. Core stability — not just a physical thing!
Anatomy & Physiology for Teachers:
Developing Core Awareness, Improving Core Stability – 2015
with Letícia Padmasri, M.A., E-RYT 500
Registration time: 2 pm and training end time: 2 pm
Deepen your understanding and practical application core stability—a topic often discussed, but seldom understood.
A strong core is nourishing, freeing, and directly affects the quality of your practice (asanas, pranayama, and meditation) on a personal and professional level. Awareness is key to developing core stability.
- Understand the role of the psoas muscle in core stability
- Learn Yoga asanas for core stability
- Explore sitting habits and seated asanas for meditation
- Discover the connections between core stability and breathing
- Enhance pranayama practice through core awareness and core stability
By working with our center, we develop the ability to consciously respond to life situations rather than react to them. We refine our capacity to be alert, responsive, and open-hearted.
- Yoga Alliance (YA): Approximately 13 contact hours

One of the most important core muscles is the iliopsoas. Because of prolonged and dysfunctional sitting and other habits, this muscle ends up restricted by social limitations and confined to repetitive movements. A healthy psoas is the first step toward a steady and comfortable Yoga practice. In this workshop you will explore the psoas, working with core awareness through the practice of Yoga asanas.
