THE CURRICULUM

ASHTANGA PRIMARY SERIES

The Primary Series is especially designed to repair, rejuvenate, and strengthen the system for the purpose of yoga. Within the series there is also a strong focus on realigning the musculoskeletal system and toning the muscles in the lower abdomen and pelvic floor, which are, incidentally, very important for establishing the correct breathing technique.

You will have the option of practicing all the asanas, with modifications, and/or with props.

There will be plenty of guidance on how to improve and enhance your teaching skills and how to plan and structure a class.

You will receive feedback from your teachers and your classmates as well, to help you to improve and to find your unique voice and style as a teacher.

ANATOMY

online yoga teacher training - anatomy

Our anatomy classes ensure an understanding of the key muscles and bones involved in asana practice and their associated health benefits and contraindications. Substantial emphasis is placed on analytic training, muscular and skeletal anatomy, individual limitations and differences. The specially designed practical anatomy classes are the back bone of the alignment classes. You will learn/revise the following:

  • Basic concepts of anatomy and physiology related to movement.
  • Application of anatomical principles to yoga practice (mechanics of yoga asana, its benefits and contraindications, healthy patterns of movement, etc.).
  • Practical anatomy with a major emphasis on the skeletal system, muscular system, connective tissue, nervous system, and movements of the major joints of the body.
  • Muscular and skeletal differences; compression, tension, proportion and orientation theory.

All these contents are studied in the Online Course using pre-recorded lectures, manual, exercises and review questions. During the In-person anatomy workshops, you will clarify doubts with your teacher, work with classmates, and practice to understand the anatomical principles of asanas.
