Our Yoga Anatomy Course in Liverpool is aimed at practitioners and yoga teachers, this course is ideal if you are looking to deepen your anatomical knowledge in order to develop an Ashtanga Vinyasa practice and teaching skills. It is ideal for personal trainers who would like to gain more knowledge in this area. We are pedantic about the anatomical technicalities of each and every posture and transition along with movement. Self-confessed ‘anatomy geeks,’ we have learnt anatomy though practice, injury, achieving and failing physical goals; from understanding what works and what doesn’t; and most of all, through sheer dedication to practice and studies. From die hard Ashtangees to a Vinyasa Flow fanatics to a Rocket Yoga junkies to fitness lovers, we share our anatomical journey with you!
This is a module from our 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training or can simply be used as 50 hrs of Continuing Professional Development. If you are looking to get certified as a yoga teacher, join 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training in Ashtanga Vinyasa and Yoga Anatomy. This anatomy course is ideal if you have a regular practice and are familiar with Ashtanga Yoga or Vinyasa Flow. If you are already 200 hrs certified and want more anatomy, this will allow you to explore not just your physicality but that of your peers. We are all different and this concept will be explored in detail.
