Course Outline:

On completion of this course you will receive a YTF Anatomy Applied CPD Series for Yoga Teachers

8 CPD afternoon sessions for yoga teachers keen to extend their knowledge of anatomy and apply it on the mat. We will explore anatomical principles through our own experience of asanas/sequences and plan your strategies for implementing what you learn in your own teaching.  Sessions will be recorded for lifetime use.

Balance & Stability: The key anatomical components of both balance and stability, how they are interrelated and how this translates onto the mat.

  • The role of the core in stability and developing the core without sit-ups!
  • Teaching tips, communication, cuing and adjustments to help your students develop awareness of their balance and stability.
  • Developing lesson plans to connect the work with other yoga principles and practices, including philosophy and pranayama.
Dynamic Movement: Why dynamic movement is central to our health
  • The key anatomical components governing safe movement
  • Developing teaching strategies and lesson plans to build into dynamic movement for all levels and abilities 

* Teaching tips, communication, cuing and adjustments to help your students develop safe and effective movement habits    

Every Body: What makes each body we teach different?
  • Using props and modifications truly tailored to the individual – we’ll have some fun with household items including cans of soup and a broom handle
  • Learning to read your students’ bodies and individualise their practice according to anatomical principles

Strength: With a combination of anatomy and breathing theory, practice of asanas/sequences and group work we will explore anatomical principles through our own experience and plan your strategies for implementing what you learn:

  • How to apply centre of gravity, weight distribution, breath mechanics and lines of force to develop your students’ structural strength and stability alongside stretch work
  • Teaching tips to encourage your students to build awareness of their own body mechanics and the difference between challenge and overworking
  • Developing lesson plans with anatomical focus within a yogic framework
  • Communication, cuing and adjustments to activate good grounding, core stability and use of the breath

It was great to have the chance at the workshop to apply in in practice the principles we learned to posture and transition. I learned things at this workshop that I can immediately apply to my teaching. Anthea Sweet is very knowledgeable and approachable and welcomes questions.  A useful and enjoyable day!K.S.
