Yoga and the Study of Movement:

These 2 two days will be spent discovering how the body moves during asana practice. This extensive training will be a combination of both lecture and practice. We will explore joint health and stability using proper alignment and props with focus on spinal/leg and shoulder/arm yoga poses. We will weave this understanding around the core principles of performing (and teaching) asana to others. This class is a requirement for the EVY 300 hour teacher training program and is approved by the Yoga Alliance for 14 continuing education hours (YACEP hours.) Both yoga teachers and students are welcome to attend this course!

Key takeaways will include:

  • Understanding of the biomechanics/anatomy of yoga movements, – what they are and how to feel them/teach them
  • Practice of movements for spinal and shoulder health and the “Art of the twist” – plus connection with the breath
  • Awareness of common disease related processes and practical precautions to keep you and your students safe
