Advanced Teacher Training 100 hour: Practical Anatomy: The Next Step in Teaching and Adjusting with Integrity

Education sessions will be a combination of theoretical learning and practical application, with a focus on “doing”. In addition to learning about movement mechanics and actions involved in asana, we will explore and apply what it means to adjust adhering to ahimsa and integrity. Through understanding proper alignment we can encourage practitioners to go beyond the body and find the internal practice.

Additionally, we will learn about sequencing, verbal cues and use of silence in class.
