We’re excited to have David Abookire as a special presenter during our 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training course coming up in September! As a special bonus, we’re also offering David’s Level 1 and Level 2 Anatomy Courses, a la carte. See below for more details and sign up here!
Level 1: Functional Anatomy $150
Tuesday, May 16th from 8:30a-5:30p
Level 1 is for yoga teachers or advanced yoga students.
Advanced students and teachers: Join our teacher trainees as they are taught functional anatomy. This class is designed to educate all levels of students on human anatomy. We will look at the bones, muscles, and fascia and gain an understanding of how the body works as a complete system. We will dive deeply into joints and ligaments while reviewing specific poses so you will understand how to reach your fullest potential while preventing injuries. You will be taught good alignment, posture and the basics behind safe body mechanics. This class is about understanding themes in the body so yoga instructors can make healthier choices on their own and apply the information immediately to their practice.
Level 2: Advanced Functional Anatomy $150
Friday, May 19th from 9a-3p
Level 2 is for teachers who have taken David’s Level 1 Anatomy or advanced students/teachers approved by Amy at Little Yoga Studio.
We will be exploring the mechanics behind many of the joints in the body and workshopping a number of yoga poses to truly understand how to correct, adjust and cue these poses. It’s a fun, interactive class with many opportunities to explore the nuances of joint movements, ask questions and truly understand how our bodies are designed to move safely. Our goal is for students to leave this class with a better understanding of the mechanics behind human physical anatomy and how to apply these movements to keep yoga poses safe for themselves and their students.
