About the course:

This course is for any yoga teacher or experienced yogi wanting to know what is happening to the body while moving in yoga asanas. During the 2 days we will learn about musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology in order to feel the body from the inside out. If we follow the osteopathic principle, structure governs function, we realise that we need to look at our bones and joints to understand movement.
This course will help you find that balance between pushing your body too hard and not going far enough. It will refine your teaching skills, increase your confidence and give you more cues to assist your students.

These 2 days include:

Daily morning yoga practice
Learning and feeling the major bones and muscles used in yoga asanas
Discovering what is happening to our muscles when we stretch or activate them
Anatomy of the breath and pranayama
Finding your own alignment
Gaining more body awareness
Visit to the University of Newcastle anatomy wet lab
