Yoga Tune Up®: Anatomy

This comprehensive 20-hour anatomy module expertly guides you into your living tissues in a concrete and inspiring way.

It provides you with a personal experience of the interplay between complex systems of the body and helps you make them relevant and tangible for your students.

Learn how the multiple layers of the body relate and function as a whole while simultaneously exploring specific anatomical structures, physiological processes and typical movement patterns and pathologies.

The unique Yoga Tune Up® approach helps you embody anatomy and our methodology dramatically improves your retention of the clinical language of anatomy in an accessible and fun way.

Dynamic movement, combined with video, 3-D models, palpation, and self-massage tools and techniques invite you to traverse the muscles, joints, bones and fascia.  You will explore their interrelatedness to breath, circulation, immunity, injury and newfound movement patterns.

The curriculum is suitable for yogis of all levels, but also ideal for any movement professional who desires to sharpen their ability to perceive within themselves as well as correctly locate in others, the vital structural landmarks and meaningful continuities of the body within any yoga or fitness practice. Make anatomy relevant to you, and your students will follow!
