Advanced Anatomy for Yoga Teachers
with Stephan Lautz
Rolfer, Somatic Experiencing and NARM Practitioner
January 22nd and 23rd, 2018 from 14:00 till 17:30
A part of Dynamic Mindfulness Advanced Yoga Teacher Training
Guest course fee: 150 €
Our whole system is designed to walk and to find balance in a constantly changing world. Without gravity, our body cannot function properly. We will look into the architecture of fascia and explore what it means to be stable, flexible and resilient. Behind the highly complex biomechanical anatomy of facia, we will discover very simple movement principles that can be applied in daily life, as well as in our Yoga practice.
We will look into self-organizational principles of our body- trembling, bouncing and pulsing- that help us stay healthy, juicy, and resilient and enable our body to heal.
We will inquire into locomotion principles we share with other mammals, to understand the biomechanics of the spine and its ability to move like a snake. This will lead us to a deeper understanding of human gait and its fascinating simplicity.

About Stephan Lautz
After working for years as a craftsman, an architect, a designer and a company owner, in 2004 fascinating realm of bodywork opened its doors and Stephan decided to become a bodyworker and Rolfer.
Since then he helps his clients to find their way out of chronic tensions and to relate to their bodies in new ways.
In 2014 he was certified as a Helpraktiker and began studying shock trauma through the Somatic Experiencing and developmental trauma through The NeuroAffective Relational Model, NARM.
In addition to his practice in München-Schwabing, in spring 2017 he opened his second practice in Berlin-Kreuzberg. Pendulating every month between the beautiful mountains of Bavaria and the fascinating metropolis Berlin provides a contrast which keeps his body-mind resilient, fresh and curious.
