Improve your understanding of how the body works in Yoga. Perfect for Yoga Teachers (as an introduction or refresher) and/or enthusiasts from any discipline looking to deepen their anatomy & physiology knowledge.
From an anatomy point of view, yoga is guided and aligned movement. In this course, Dr Lori Zucker will lead us into the anatomy and physiology of yogic movement.
Over the 2 days, we will break down the anatomy of the body to promote a better understanding of yoga asana. There will be an emphasis on alignment, using specific muscle techniques to facilitate asana, and linking anatomy and physiology to a yoga practice. The movement into asana sets up the asana itself so aligning the movement correctly is vital to developing the asana.
This course will go into the relationships between these elements and how they work together:
- Bones and Boney Landmarks
- Joint and Joint movement into Asana
- Muscle Groups and Muscle movement
- and the ideas around Core Strength, Ligaments, Tendons, Cartilage, Fascia, Biological Systems and Injuries.
