Understanding the body is understanding the poses
The study of anatomy is much more than memorizing the names of bones and muscles. Understanding how bodies can and cannot move enables us to practice and teach poses safely and efficiently. We teach functional anatomy, scientifically proving that bodies are unique in their structure and constitution. This uniqueness means that poses may look different when different people do them. When you know what a pose should be doing for you – the function of a pose – you will be able to adapt and adjust the pose to suit your body and the bodies of your students. This leads to a practice that is safe, creative and delicious for everybody.
In this training, we cover:
- The 14 skeletal segments and their movements
- How to identify tension and compression in these segments and how to adapt poses accordingly, if required
- The myofascial groups and their functions
- How this translates into movement
Who is this training for?
This training is for those who want to know more about human anatomy and movement, those who are new to anatomy, those who have already done yoga training, and people who are personal trainers or other movement professionals.
