Anatomy for Yoga Teachers & Nerds: Refining the Lower Body

Yoga is inherently therapeutic. If, and only if, we understand the anatomy of the yoga poses. When we properly line up the bones we coordinate strength with deep core facilitation. We enhance the function of all systems; including nervous, digestive, immune, and endocrine. We maximize breathing mechanics and cardio respiratory potentials. We refine the attention, retention, and insight capabilities of the mind. Most importantly, it provides the foundation for a sustainable, life long practice. As a yoga teacher our understanding of anatomy is paramount to understanding how the practice lives in our student's bodies.

In the first of this three part series we will discuss the anatomy from the hips to the feet. Class begins with the detailed anatomy of the lower body. This lecture will include the optimal movement of the muscles and joints as well as common misalignments and injuries to prepare you for a typical yoga class. Asana class will cover core yoga poses for the lower body to integrate this knowledge into your own practice. We will also work in small groups to refine your observation skills, explore common misalignments, distill verbal cueing and hands-on adjustments.

Our goal is to efficiently and affectively support your student's expression of their yoga practice.

*Please come prepared to learn and practice yoga. It is highly recommended to attend all 3 workshops, but each section may be attended individually.
