Location: Journey Yoga, Calgary, AB

Anatomy & Biomechanics come alive in this weekend workshop of interactive learning and hands-on exploration.
Not an anatomy geek? That’s OK! We have streamlined key points of anatomy and biomechanics for this weekend workshop. Understanding how your body moves, and teaching from this perspective, empowers you and your students to explore asana practice with confidence.
By learning in a group setting, you will gain a wider perspective on our physical similarities, as well as our unique and important differences. Anatomy & Biomechanics are supportive tools to inform your personal asana practice as well as your teachings.

• Anatomical terms of reference
• Overview of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue
