Anatomy for Yoga Teachers

With: Claire Wilson

Date: Saturday, November 25, 2017

Time: TBD, approx 6 hours

Cost: $100 (EYS Grads always save 20%)

Join Dr. Claire Wilson, ND, in a weekend workshop to expand your knowledge of functional anatomy on the yoga mat. We will begin with a review of basic anatomy (muscles, ligaments, bones, nerves, fascia, postural patterns) and move towards exploring the bio-mechanics of static poses and dynamic transitions. This workshop will elaborate on the following:

  • Common conditions seen on the yoga mat
  • Injuries that yoga practitioners often endure through a consistent yoga practice, and why
  • How you can remedy these as a skilled teacher through specific Asana modifications and hands-on adjustments

Whether you simply want to learn more about your own practice, or expand on the practical applications of teaching a safe yoga class, this is a great opportunity to go deeper into the physical body of yoga. Basic anatomy knowledge is preferred, but not necessary. Questions are encouraged!
