Functional Anatomy Workshop for Yoga Teachers with Bryan Lau

About the Workshop

Designed for teachers, teachers-to-be and serious practitioners, this functional anatomy course has modified rigid human body science into a practical and understandable concept relevant to asanas ONLY. This is not the ‘med school’ anatomy course that is aggressively filled with the Latin names of muscles and tendons. Instead, this course provides knowledge about the different roles of different body parts in the transition and sustainability of our asana practice, how the body parts work and integrate together, flaws in different skeletal designs and how the modern lifestyle has evolved our yogi bodies and yoga practice.

This course is right for you if you want to:

* Learn about anatomy relevant only to Yoga
* Improve the accuracy of your physical focus
* Guide your students safely and purposefully
* Acquire visual, hand and mind skills in yoga teaching
* Remove bad karma in the physical kohsha
* Minimise injuries

Core Content
This yoga anatomy course is made up of 4 modules that include lectures, 3D graphic demonstrations, Q&A, and asana practice.

Course Outline

* Asana-oriented Functional Anatomy
* Functions of muscle contraction in asana: Movement, Speed Control, Sustain and Secure
* Relationship between strength and flexibility in a yogi’s body
* Difference between compression and tension in yin-style poses
* Rules and methods to stretch a specific body part for healing purposes
* Asana with mobile shoulder and rigid hip
* Fight or flight response vs. rest and digest mode – the nervous system of yoga
* Chartaranga challenge in different shoulders
* SI joint: Yoga biomechanics
* Mystery of pelvic tilting: MJ vs. JLo dancing hips
* Anatomy of Ujjaii Breath
* Bandhas and their physical manifestation in anatomy
* Acquiring a good pair of observing eyes, a good pair of healing hands, and a logical decisive mind
* Different body types and their influence on individual practice

* This workshop will count as 16 hours CET
