As the number of yoga students, yoga studios, yoga teacher trainings, and yoga teachers continues to skyrocket - the importance of a solid, foundational understanding of anatomy continues to grow.
We’re seeing the rate of injuries (both acute and chronic) rise among yoga practitioners and some of this can be attributed to poor understanding of human anatomy and physiology.
Many yoga teacher trainings glaze over, poorly teach, or even omit the required anatomy hours. Often they’ll simply assign an anatomy book to read or they’ll have a yoga teacher without formal anatomy training teach that portion of the training.
This leads to confusion, misinformation, and a general disdain for anatomy among YTT graduates.
Critical Anatomy is an online, video based course (with an accompanying book and study guide) that makes anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, and injury prevention accessible, understandable, and applicable for yoga teachers.
Created by a Doctor of Physical Therapy with over 10 years of experience in both yoga and treating injury, Critical Anatomy will undoubtedly elevate your understanding of how the body works in yoga.
