In this online training we will explore the basics of anatomy. By understanding how your body moves and functions your asana (yoga pose) will improve. Besides that, you will be able to practice safely without harming your own body.
Having anatomical knowledge will not only improve your own asana, but also the asana of others if you are teaching yoga. It will be much easier for you to read bodies and give personal advice to your students. Also, you will be able to build up your yoga sequences in a structured way which makes sense for the body to follow the series of asana’s you created. And most important of all, you will be able to teach modifications of poses for people with injuries or pregnant ladies for example.
We will start at the very beginning and take it step by step.
The course will take approximately 20 hours to complete. This includes also self study and practice. There is no way we can cover everything there is to know about anatomy, but it will give you a basic understanding on how the body works and moves.
The anatomy training is divided in eleven chapters:
- The Basics of Anatomy
- Skeleton system
- Muscular system
- Connective tissue
- The Hip
- The knee
- Foot and ankle
- The spine
- The shoulders
- The core
- The breath
The chapters consists of several video’s to watch. You can start at the very beginning and after completing a video you can move to the next one.
After each chapter there is an online quiz which is designed to check your knowledge.
Additional to the video’s there is workbook (as pdf download) available which includes extra assignments. You can download this file in the very first chapter.
