Yoga teachers and practitioners alike can hugely benefit from a solid understanding of the human body’s structure and function. This 4-part workshop series is designed to help you deepen your knowledge of anatomy, enabling you to practice and if you are a teacher, lead your classes safely and effectively. You may attend individual workshops, or register for all four!
In this workshop series, we will explore the functional anatomy of the major joints and muscles involved in yoga postures, with a particular focus on how they work together to create movement. We will also examine common anatomical variations and how they can impact the practice of yoga.
Through a combination of lectures, hands-on adjustments, and visual aids, you will learn to identify the key anatomical features of the body and how they relate to yoga postures. You will also gain an understanding of the biomechanics of movement and how they can affect yoga practice.
