Narelle Carter-Quinlanembodies the Body-Land. She is a global leading exponent on yoga for scoliosis and embodied spinal anatomy. An anatomist by academic, experiential and yes, cadaveric training, her unique body of work integrates the practice of yoga with the embodiment of your anatomy and embryology. Together with her vision of the body as part of the living land.
Passionate about her subject and vibrantly engaging, Narelle has guest presented to sell out Workshops and lectures at Yoga Union Centre for Backcare and Scoliosis in New York City, has taught the spinal anatomy and scoliosis research component of Elise Miller's yoga for scoliosis Teacher Training in San Francisco, has taught in Europe, the UK, New Zealand, and of course, in her native Australia. Narelle has taught Anatomy, Physiology and Histology at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia, for seven years.
Narelle presents her scholarly and movement research in yoga and the spine at International peer reviewed Conferences, including the World Congress for Low Back Pain, the World Dance Alliance Global Summit, International Association of Dance Medicine and Science, The Australian Osteopathic Convention, and twice at the Australian Yoga Therapy Conference.
Renowned for her uniquely beautiful, rich, information dense presentations, and deep, yet playful teachings on Spinal Anatomy, Narelle delights in illuminating the complex with originality, humour and story. With her formal training and apprenticeship in the Iyengar method of yoga unravelling close to two decades, Narelle's yoga and movement practice spans five. She is a dancer, choreographer and artistic director, currently researching House of the Broken Wing, a performative, film and written exploration of moving in a scoliotic landscape.
