Accessible & Applied: Anatomy Comes to Life on a Yoga Mat
Accessible anatomy is functional and straightforward. It's not about dazzling with big words and strange Latin terms. Terminology is important and useful, but the goal is to make the most relevant information clear and understandable, then apply it directly to the practice of yoga. If you're a student, you'll learn to visualize and feel what's happening in your body, find optimal engagement and alignment, and make adjustments for a safe, present and rewarding practice. If you're a teacher, you'll apply this knowledge to your own practice and also use it to develop classes and assist students. With an understanding of the functional anatomy of yoga, you'll expand your options for verbal cues, modifications, and adjustments.
In this five week exploration of the shoulder, yoga teachers will study in-depth anatomy and kinesiology applied to yoga. Content is presented in a variety of ways (presentations, discussions, demonstrations, activities, and articles/videos) to promote integration and retention. Teachers will experience the concepts in cues for muscular engagement, yoga postures, and class sequences.

Passionate about anatomy but struggling to learn and apply it?
Learn anatomy by teaching it!
One of the best ways to truly learn material is to teach it. In this workshop series, we'll work through the anatomy and kinesiology of the hip, and then you'll develop a project that is relevant to you. It could be a presentation for teacher training, a YouTube video for your students, a handout, or the beginning of your own yoga anatomy workshops.
