Yoga Anatomy

Neval Aras is the director of the Sensing Body Academy and a senior yoga teacher trainer working out of studios based in Turkey, Spain and US, known for her expertise in the fields of Anatomy of Movement and Emotional Anatomy in which she teacher trainings. She is a defender of the view that Yoga should be taught in a way that includes both body & emotional awareness in order to achieve true mindfulness. 
She has contributed to various teacher training and is responsible for the increase of Yoga teachers, especially in Istanbul.

As of recently, she is focusing more on anatomy trainings and less on yoga teacher trainings. She works with the universities on research pertaining to yoga and movement, enabling scientific legitimization of the yoga practice and its benefits. To enrich her perspective of functional and emotional anatomy, she has studied with the leading minds and masters in the field – Thomas Myers and Stanley Keleman – to name a few.

The basis of her teaching is the inseparable nature of the physical and emotional bodies. In the Yoga Teacher Training and Anatomy of Movement programs, she focuses on the reality of both the physical and the emotional bodies, discussing how they could be brought into harmony, connecting separate parts into a whole.
