Anatomy in Clay Course with Phoebe Pilaro
In this course we will use “manikins” (3 foot tall skeletons) to build the main muscles of the body with clay. This is a teaching technique used in most medical schools around the country to teach anatomy, because the the effort of molding the muscles with clay and attaching them to precise points on the skeleton teaches the shape, function and attachment points of each muscle.
By building the muscles with clay, one gets a deeper knowledge of anatomy than by rote memorization, or even by coloring in a book. After this intense 15-hour course, students will really “know” the muscles of the body. Join us Oct. 8-11, 1-4 pm and Oct. 12th 9-12 am.
About Phoebe Pilaro:
Phoebe Pilaro attended the Iyengar Yoga Institute in San Francisco from 2000-2002. She acquired the first two Iyengar certifications in the years following. Iyengar Yoga is strongly focused on alignment and classical yoga philosophy. Phoebe has continued her studies to include Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga, and her love of the human body led her to her studies of Anatomy. She developed a middle and high school course called “Yoga and Anatomy,” using clay to build muscles, and has gone on to teach Anatomy In Clay for yoga teacher trainings. Phoebe believes that yoga helps us to connect to our deeper selves through our bodies, allowing us to tap into our own source of joy and to explore our unique potential.
