We are offering the following courses:

Beginning Anatomy for Yoga Teachers

Day Time Instructor Cost
Sun, March 12 3 pm - 6 pm Julie $65 ea ($180 for all 3)

This class will start with a study of the system that describes human movement, and quickly move on to applying anatomical awareness into the teaching of yoga poses. We'll practice poses, with a focus on the pelvis and spine, so that participants can feel in their own bodies the difference that clear anatomical references can make. Anatomy can be fun and illuminating.
