Anatomy in Practice for Asana Alignment

A 10-hours CPD workshop for Yoga Teachers

at the Parsonage Farm School, Farnborough, Hampshire GU14 9TT

In a unique opportunity, we bring together two peers from the complementary industries of yoga and health science in an event designed specifically for Yoga Teachers. We’ve blended their expertise to create ‘Anatomy in Practice for Yoga Teachers’, a 10 hour-CPD workshop for Yoga Teachers only.


In this workshop, you will learn basic anatomy and relevant anatomy terminology in the context of yoga practice and teaching yoga.  You will use this knowledge to understand neutral alignments and how to recognise the misalignments of the students in your classes. This will allow you to correct their alignment as well as supporting your students to increase their strength and flexibility.

14.30-16.30  Anatomy Planes and how to use this for Basic Alignment checks


Sunday 8th September 2019
