The Yoga Anatomy Course
The Yoga Anatomy course involves the study of the structure of the human body, including gross anatomy, an overview of tissue and organ systems. It will also cover the study of principles of movement, their application to yoga practice, and benefits and contraindications, which include healthy movement patterns. It also touches on energy anatomy, covering topics such as chakras, nadis, prana, and koshas. Carol Baxter, founder of Glow Yoga, will go into more depth into the topics of Energy anatomy within the rest of your course. The anatomy portion of your course will consist of 20 hours of lecture and 5 hours of practice applying anatomy and physiology principles to asana.

This anatomy course and class time adheres to Yoga Alliance standards as a measure of professional education and experience in the yoga teaching community. Their registry marks are globally-recognized symbols of standards-based knowledge in the field of yoga.
