30 hours Functional Yogic Anatomy
30 hours Functional Yogic Anatomy is the perfect mix of Modern-day human science and the Ancient Yoga science. This comprehensive training is intended for yoga practitioners and teachers looking for a deeper understanding of anatomical restrictions that limits the ability to do certain asana or preventing injuries during the practice. Human body is intelligently integrated. Understanding the various structures, such as joints, connective tissues and nervous system, and functions of them together will help us understand the physiology of movement, breath and stillness in an asana. This will allow you to seamlessly integrate this knowledge into your teaching in order to make modifications for clients’ individual needs and for injury prevention, and to ensure that your clients feel nurtured and taken care of during their sessions.
This training contains 7 modules and provides approximately 30-hours of continuing education. It contains lectures on functional anatomy, connective tissues, biomechanics of joints, and nervous system in connection with the movement.
