Teachers will learn about the principles of mechanical freedom in postures and movement and they will find out about the parallels and differences between yoga practice and the osteopathic approach to bio mechanics.The Original Body invites the reader to put aside Sanskrit terminology and well - trodden paths and dig deeply into themselves and discover the unconditioned body at its deepest level.
