Welcome to Avid Anatomy, a collaborative space for anatomy + yoga with resources curated by Joanne Avison and Karen Kirkness. Here we blog about movement, anatomy, biotensegrity, self-care, and more. Join us as we navigate the intersection of morphology, movement and mystery, and be sure to sign up for our newsletter!
Let's Grow Together
We need to understand our anatomy so we can take better care of ourselves and others. We love teaching about everything from life drawing to body painting and building models of structure.
We are inspired by the nonlinear aspects of anatomy that guide human movement through spiral structure and function. There's a lot to discuss, so head on over to the blog to jump in!GO SPIRAL
