May 2021

Faculty: Nora Maskey

Location: TBA, Calgary, AB

Tuition: Full Weekend $365

Anatomy comes 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 functional movement that are relevant to teaching yoga. 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 & Functional Movement are supportive tools to inform your personal asana practice as well as your teachings.

Key Concepts

• Anatomical terms of reference
• Overview of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue
• Regional anatomy
• Yoga asana analysis based on biomechanics vs. alignment
• Use of props to support and adapt yoga postures
