INQUIRE WITHIN: A 30-hour anatomy and asana course for teachers and curious students
PRACTICAL | APPLICABLE | FUN! (Yes, anatomy can be fun)
This 30-hour anatomy and asana course will deepen your understanding of body mechanics during yoga practice. It will reinforce and supplement the fundamental anatomy covered in most 200-hour teacher trainings—but you needn’t enter the program with prior anatomy instruction. All curious movers are welcome!
Yoga students will gain an enhanced comprehension of the body that they can use to inform their personal practice. Teachers will hone their observation skills and their understanding of anatomical variations and how to modify postures to suit individual needs.
During our sessions we’ll explore movement activities to illustrate and complement the anatomy we’re studying—so prepare to move! This is not 30 hours of sitting and note-taking! We’ll apply the anatomy lessons to classic yoga asana, so the coursework will inform your yoga practice in direct, practical ways.
