This experiential anatomy class is designed for yoga teachers who want to review and build their understanding of the musculo-skeletal system in asana. Build your anatomical vocabulary to assist your further independent study of the body. Learn the major joints’ structure and function and how to target muscles to create specific joint movement in asana. Understand how to use external forces and resistance to target muscles in asana and other exercise. Learn and understand the proper asana modifications for progression, injury and skeletal variations.
Led by Amy Walter, this two day anatomy intensive is credentialed to offer 16 hours of continuing education through Yoga Alliance. Read more about Amy here.
