Anatomy Module April 2019


YogaFest Academy presents: ANATOMY MODULE, a 4 days Intensive, April 2019


This module is part of the 200 hour Teacher Certification Program and can be followed as a stand alone module for those who want to deepen their anatomy knowledge or want to refresh it.


Stu will be focusing on the practical use of yoga related anatomy knowledge. The main intention of the lessons will be on helping the students learn to view yoga postures through an anatomical lens. This will facilitate;


  • logical sequencing to peak postures
  • evaluating the balance of a sequence in terms of strength and joint flexibilty
  • deconstructing key postures
  • understanding student’s restrictions
  • appreciation of the elements that influence free movement at the different joints


This knowledge will be linked with the main posture groups of Hip Rotations, Forward Folds, Shoulders, Twists and Backbending. We will also consider the respiratory and nervous systems in relation to how they may influence and be influenced by asana. And have fun while we are doing it.
