For ALL Yoga Teachers and Students!

Familiarity with how our bodies are put together, how their different systems function, and the mechanics of how they move can deepen our understanding of how to practice yoga safely, effectively, and efficiently.

Learning anatomy, biomechanics and physiology can help us prevent injury, maintain a healthy, mobile body over our lifetime, and become more effective yoga teachers.

Program Outline

In this course, we’ll examine Western anatomy through the lens of yoga by studying and applying to practice the following:
  • The ten systems of the body and how yoga can positively affect them
  • The anatomy and biomechanics of the breath and their central importance in how we practice asana and breathwork
  • The anatomy of the spine and how to practice asana safely and effectively by utilizing the biomechanics of the spine
  • The anatomy of the major joints of the body, the five primary causes of joint pain, and how yoga can help maintain healthy joints

This course will be a combination of lecture and applied practice of what we study so that students complete this course with a sense that knowledge of Western anatomy isn’t only information on a page but living, breathing concepts that can be practically applied to our yoga practice and teaching.

There is no pre-reading required for this course. Handouts for each subject will be distributed prior to our weekly session.
