EMBODIED ANATOMY COURSE(50 Hours - Winter 2021)

KNOWING WHAT GOES ON UNDER YOUR SKIN can transform your experience of your own body as well as your teaching. This course is for aspiring or established teachers of movement, including Yoga teachers and students, and others who want to deepen their knowledge of embodied, moving anatomy. Musculoskeletal anatomy is both fascinating in itself and provides the foundation for understanding bodies better, including your skills in analyzing and modifying postures and movements. It can also help you guide more precise and technical classes, have better conversations with colleagues, physios and doctors and give you more confidence as a teacher.

BEYOND AN UPGRADED VOCABULARY AND UNDERSTANDING of all the most important muscles and bones, this course will also engage you in the practice of observing and touching different bodies. These hands-on experiences can sharpen your eyes as a teacher and give you a better intuition and reasoning about how to modify certain positions to work around pain, how to stretch specific muscle groups and perhaps even design your own exercises to target specific areas. You’ll also be teamed up with one or two other participants in learning-groups, so you can practice together during the course and perhaps after as well. Learning with someone else is SO much more fun than learning alone – and it keeps you accountable…

COURSE FORMAT & DATES

ONLY WHEN YOU ARE CURIOUS can you learn new things. And when your own body is involved in learning, including your voice and senses, learning is more fun and it sticks. Therefore, the course hand-outs, both the manual and flashcards, are colorful and ready for action – for different types of learners. The material is selected to be most relevant and actionable in making you a better teacher and practitioner, and delivered through a playful, two-way teaching approach to engage you and prevent information overload.

The course will consist of three intensives, allowing to dive deeper into the material, and shorter weekly sessions.
