It is important that you have a basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology if you are to teach any yoga for pre & post natal yoga, parent/baby, toddler, children’s, teens and special needs students. This course empowers you with this knowledge of the human being and also how this knowledge relates into yoga.

This course is for ANYONE who would like to further their knowledge on the human body and how it works. This course is also adapted to discuss and research into how the anatomy and muscles are used in yoga postures.

The course includes books: Scientific Keys Volumes 1 & 2 –‘The Key Muscles of Yoga’ & ‘The Key Poses of Hatha Yoga’ by Ray Long MD FRCSC

In this course we will not only address the medical/therapeutic aspects of the human body, but we will be looking at how the body moves and works in yoga postures. This topic should be researched and explored further in your training and personal study. We will touch on how the muscles work and move in various postures so that you get a reasonable idea of how the body works in yoga.
