$285.00

As a yoga teacher, it’s important to know about anatomy in order to better to lead a healthy practice and help students understand what’s going on in the body. Studying anatomy will allow you to lead classes with clearer instruction, to tell your students which parts of the body should be contracting and relaxing in various poses, and to better understand weak, tight, and injured areas. You’ll leave with a greater understanding of the different systems of the body and how yoga can impact these various areas, which will inform your teaching and allow you to lead with greater understanding and compassion.
