In this course, we’ll deepen our understanding of human anatomy and kinesiology in relationship to the practice and teaching of yoga asana. You will learn the architecture and movement principles of the major joints and spine, develop your observation skills to assess postural imbalances, and explore ways to effectively adapt the practice for common injuries and postural imbalances to facilitate safe practice for yourself and your students. There is required reading and writing for this course. All course work must be completed to apply for CEU’s from Yoga Alliance.


$225 for weekend one, $400 for weekends one and two, $575 for all three weekends


Open to students with a 200 hr. teaching credential or by permission of the instructor. Students are welcome to attend all three weekends but must do so as a continuum.
