Yoga Anatomy Course
(YAC 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 yoga teachers and practitioners who want to deepen their knowledge of living anatomy. Anatomy is fascinating in itself, but also empowers you to sense your own body more precisely and understand the experiences of others better. It is the foundation of analyzing and modifying postures and movements, can help you guide more technical classes and have better conversations with colleagues and health-care professionals. All of which can really build your 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 begin to unlock your embodied creativity. 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. Expect an engaging mix of teaching styles to get all parts of your mind powered up. We want to avoid information overload so the material is selected to be relevant and actionable in making you a better teacher and practitioner – and delivered in a playful, two-way approach that relies on your active participation.

The course will consist of three weekend intensives, allowing to dive deeper into the material, and shorter weekly follow-up sessions. It is not recommended to join if you cannot set aside the time for all weekend intensives.
