Anatomy of a Centered Body - Getting to the Source of Structural Imbalance:
Resolving Structural Imbalances in the Core Body.
co-authored with Leila Stuart
Regardless of the method or style in which you work, and regardless of whether you work with groups or one-on-one, you need to have an extensive tool kit of practices that you can offer students who have spinal problems. And if you teach group classes, you need to be able to think on your feet, offering variations and modifications for those individuals who can’t and shouldn’t do the same practices as the rest of the group.
These aren’t skills you learn on the spot, but techniques that require some anatomical and bio-mechanical knowledge. Most importantly, these practices have been test driven so you can feel confident sharing them with your students.
“Taking the Concepts Far Beyond Standard ... Textbooks”
Donna’s teaching has greatly increased my understanding of biomechanics and human movement, taking the concepts far beyond standard health science textbooks. Applying this knowledge to yoga creates a profound awareness of subtle changes and possibilities within the human body and spirit. I am looking forward to integrating this with my studies in yoga, remedial massage and mind-body medicine. Above all, I really appreciated Donna’s grounded, practical approach to yoga and teaching.
“My Back Has Been Much Happier”
My lower back has been bothering me increasingly for several years. Its not quite pain. More like discomfort. It seems to have been aggravated by the construction work that I do.
I began heating my back and stretching in the evenings. I saw a spinal doctor at the Veterans Administration several times. I went through a course of physical therapy. I went through a chiropractic sequence. I tried an inversion table. I’ve used a Med Massager. I went to a masseuse for most of a year.
These treatments provided me with some temporary relief but none of them had lasting effects.
Somewhere on Facebook several months ago I came across Donna Farhi, Leila Stuart and Yoga U Online. I bought the Pathways to a Centered Body book and then the Anatomy of a Centered Body online course.
I began reading the book. I was struggling to get through the anatomy and happened to catch Donna on Facebook. She said to not worry about the anatomy and to try the exercises on pages 168-9 in the Pathways book. I did and my back has been much happier since I began integrating these practices.
“Donna is a Master Presenter and Educator”
I came with no expectations – only experience of past workshops with other accomplished teachers who mostly structured the lessons around asana. In contrast, this blitzed all!! Donna is a master presenter and educator. The information given, powerful and instantly useful, delivered in a well measured series for ease of understanding.
“Simply the Best of the Best”
Donna’s work is of the highest integrity, cohesion and value I have ever found in 37 years of my Yoga path. Simply the best of the best.
Incorporating the rigorous backing of anatomical principles for safe and sustainable practice, Donna offers progressive levels of engagement that allow people of all levels of experience and from all traditions to build their own authentic Yoga practice.
