Embodied Anatomy, Functional Movement, and the Spirit of Yoga: An Immersion from the Inside Out

Calling all movement enthusiasts! Whether you are a teacher of yoga or another movement practice, or simply a student who is curious about your own body, this 30-hour course will provide a framework for understanding human movement. Working from the inside out, we will take a look at the layers of the body while weaving in the philosophy, spirit, and purpose of Yoga.
Learn in a tangible way by feeling your own body in familiar asana and looking at other bodies to gain a more comprehensive understanding of posture, movement, and breath. Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls will assist you in creating a body map, increasing your proprioception of both individual muscles and movement patterns. This experiential approach allows clinical language and scientific concepts to become relatable, meaningful, and applicable to your practice and your teaching. You will build the skills that create mobility, flexibility, and versatility of body, mind, and spirit. These tools will help you get stronger, move more efficiently, and embody the spirit of yoga on and off the mat.
This course is an invaluable tool for yoga teachers and serious students alike. It will enrich your practice and inspire your teaching. Teachers will gain the awareness to see bodies more clearly, sequence more effectively, and offer more precise and accessible instructions. All participants will gain insights towards a sustainable movement practice and overall optimal health by improving posture, creating balanced movement, and more efficient breathing all while connecting the deeper meaning of yoga to your practice.
