“Our body mind container must be strong and stable.
Then, we can fill it with energy from our practice and carry that energy everywhere we go as a heightened state of aliveness.”

Part of Pranakriya’s 300-hour Teacher Training
To practice yoga safely, we study human anatomy to better understand how to move, engage and position our muscles and bones. For many yoga students, however, anatomy is a daunting and confusing topic. This course creates an experiential environment to study your own body and your own asana practice while learning the language of anatomy, applied to your own body. We will review safe Range of Motion for all the body’s joints and name the major muscles that create those actions. We will also explore how we can train our eye to see more accurately the anatomy and movement patterns of others. All practices and activities in this program aim to help you experience, discuss and perhaps enhance your body’s abilities for safe and conscious movement. Lectures will be offered to describe how the nervous system and the body’s muscles and skeleton work together to create safe strengthening and lengthening for the muscles.
Here are the courses I am currently offering:

Yoga with William Hufschmidt
Statement of Faith
If we are somehow endowed with participation of some kind of divinity, then we are indeed special, and should treat each other with the respect and dignity this demands.
If, on the other hand, we are the accidental outcome of blind natural processes in a cosmos that is indifferent to us being here at all, then we are indeed special, and should treat each other with a tenderness and respect befitting such serendipitous surprises.
