Yoga and the mereological fallacy
Mereology is the study of the relationship between parts and the whole. It helps us with questions about when it is useful to reduce things and look at their component parts and when it is useful to put things together and consider the whole.
The merelogical Fallacy is when ascribe qualities of the whole to a part of a thing. An example of this might be that the biceps flexes the elbow; this is only very partially true. A human being flexes an elbow not a bicep; a bicep has no will or mind to bring to bear on things, there are many other things that are involved in the bending of an arm. It might be thought pedantic to invoke this argument, but I don’t think it is, I think it leads us down a faulty way of thinking about movement and many other things.


Theories of movement
These days in yoga it seems that new movements and sequences are developed almost daily, how do we decide if these ideas are useful additions to yoga’s rich repertoire, or less helpful window dressing that is motivated by an increased desire for novelty?
This workshop will look at  the anatomy of movement and its neural underpinnings with the intention of helping the teacher or student make an informed decision about what to teach and how to practice. The day will be part theory and part practice.
