Anatomy: Form & Function

Yoga by definition means to unify or to bring together, as in body and mind, for example. Balancing effort and ease, or strength and flexibility is at the core of a yoga practice. This state of equilibrium is constantly pulled out of balance, in one direction or another. The study of Anatomy and Physiology in the context of teaching a yoga class will bring together the physical and the mental. Fitness professionals will learn a language of movement and an awareness of the poses that will enable them to guide their clients through a safe and mindful yoga practice that yields results in range of motion and muscle tone. The primary focus is the Musculoskeletal, Respiratory, Cardiovascular and Nervous Systems with a unique emphasis on variations among individuals. Course is suitable for both Group Instructors and Private Client Professionals.
