Anatomy for Asana

Learn to skillfully guide the musculoskeletal body into the shapes we call yoga asanas.

Graduates of this course possess a fluency in musculoskeletal anatomy that supports safe and effective teaching and sequencing of asana classes that are intended to develop strength, flexibility and self-awareness.

Asanas are body shapes that are formed by the position of the body’s many joints. In this course, you will learn how joints work in general, and how each of the body’s important joints work specifically. This information will give you the understanding you need to work with the three types of of limitation that prevent going further into a pose, when that is desirable. Those limitation types are limitations in strength, limitations in mobility, and limitations in skill.

You can view each video lesson as many times as you want. When you feel you’ve met the lesson’s learning objectives, you will take an automatically graded quiz before moving on to the next lesson.
