"When you know how you create your problems, you also have the keys to solve them"
•Habituations called Samskara

YOGA ANATOMY WITH LESLIE & AMY
INCLUDED IN YOUR TRAINING, STUDY WITH EXPERT IN THE FIELD
For the anatomy component of your training, we're partnering with world-renowned Yoga Educators & best-selling authors of Yoga Anatomy, Leslie Kaminoff & Amy Matthews.
Using what they've learned in their combined 50-years of experience training yoga teachers, they've created a unique online + in-person course that's exclusively available through Teacher Training programs: YogaAnatomy.net Fundamentals.
This is not your average anatomy training. Don't expect hours of "which bone is which" that make you feel like you're back in high school science classes... Leslie & Amy spend time on the things that matter most to a yoga teacher and skip the memorization.
They'll help you establish a broad base of knowledge by sharing examples, analogies, stories, and guiding you through physical experiments that make the material helpful and applicable to teaching yoga to students.
Leslie & Amy will also share their own favorite teaching strategies like...
* How to make poses accessible for any student
* What to do when students have an injury and still want to practice
* Simple cues that help every student find success on the mat.
Leslie and Amy's unique blend of humor and expertise make them the absolute best team to guide you through this phase of your journey.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You'll join Amy & Leslie at home via your computer for 20-hours of guided lesson content, reflection, personal exploration, and teaching preparation.
They'll lead you through movement experiments that will help you apply anatomy ideas to your own practice, and give you tools you'll be able to access as a teacher.
You'll have time to soak up the material and try it out it in your own asana practice.This means that each time we come together as a group, you'll already have a strong foundation in that unit's content and we'll be able to dive even deeper into the material, rather than spend valuable group time on basic concepts and memorization.
Our group time will be spent in hands-on application.
We'll break into discussion groups, share movement exercises, and observe exactly how this information interweaves with our tradition.
By the time we're finished, you'll have a broad understanding of the anatomical concepts that are most important to a yoga teacher so you can begin teaching with confidence.
