FUNCTIONAL ANATOMY FOR YOGA TEACHERS
To most effectively and safely practice or teach yoga asana, one must understand fundamental principles of anatomy. Enhance body awareness in your asana practice, and gain practical tools for teaching postures and variations. Learn to distinguish different types of resistance to movement and how to address them. Through hands-on testing we will learn to assess yoga postures, exploring the impact of natural differences in our bones. Within our own group we will see an incredible variation of participants’ skeletons and experiences of yoga postures. Rather than a focus on a universal, aesthetic alignment; Individual alignment is as unique as your fingerprint, due to your uniquely shaped bones. A great study for serious practitioners to take a deeper look, and necessary for yoga teachers of any style.
