Functional Anatomy for Yoga Teachers
Cost: 2 days £240
As a yoga teacher an understanding of functional anatomy is critical to being able to identify weak and under-functioning muscles and which yoga poses to use to engage them, build strength and flexibility.
This 2 day experiential learning course focuses on the 12 structural muscles that protect the spine and hold the skeleton in place.
This Functional Anatomy and Kinesiology module is 2 days in duration and will provide all students with the ability to perform many muscle testing and correction techniques to complement your full body Yoga massage. This module led by Jambo will go even deeper into the anatomy of postures and inter-relationships of the muscular skeletal systems.
These structural muscles are underused in our modern day living and underworked in most of our physical activity, yet have a huge relationship to the nervous system and functional movement.
By gaining a full understanding of anatomy you will be better placed to support your students and grow their practice.
