Deeply understanding the anatomy and movement principles of the body is an invaluable tool for yoga teachers and serious students. Not only does it help your teaching, but it also enriches your own practice.

In this special training, we will practice active and quiet poses, but our work will be focused around learning specific anatomy by feeling it in our own bodies and seeing it in others' bodies. Often participants in this training realize they know a lot about anatomy because they feel it rather than verbalize it. What we will uncover is the movement principles (kinesiology) and names of that anatomy.

Not only will we stretch our hamstrings, for example, but we will also learn exactly where they attach and what exactly it is they do in the body besides make forward bends challenging.
