50 hrs in Ashtanga and Yoga Anatomy
24th July to 5th August 2022
Aimed at practitioners, this course is ideal if you are looking to deepen your anatomical knowledge in order to develop an Ashtanga Vinyasa practice and teaching skills. I am pedantic about the anatomical technicalities of each and every posture and transition. The mechanics of the asanas have been the object of my meditation for some time now, with the physical highs and lows of practice being a huge part of my emotional and spiritual journey. A self-confessed ‘anatomy geek,’ I have learnt anatomy though practice, injury, achieving and failing physical goals; from understanding what works and what doesn’t; and most of all, through sheer dedication to my practice and studies. From a die hard Ashtangee to a Vinyasa Flow fanatic to a Rocket Yoga junkie, I share my anatomical journey with you!
If you are looking to get certified as a yoga teacher, join 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training in Ashtanga Vinyasa and Yoga Anatomy.
This anatomy course is ideal if you have a regular practice and are familiar with Ashtanga Yoga or Vinyasa Flow. If you are already 200 hrs certified and want more anatomy, this will allow you to explore not just your physicality but that of your peers. We are all different and this concept will be explored in detail.
The course will be centred around the postures of Ashtanga and Rocket Vinyasa. You will learn the content of the course through theory, exploration and practice. With heaps of time allocated to posture analysis, you will really reap the benefits of achieving good posture through yoga. With a morning practice of Ashtanga or Rocket Vinyasa, students will have the opportunity to explore the skeletal muscular system through practice with a very anatomical and technical commentary provided throughout the practice.
