As we explore the human skeleton, you will learn about the wonders of bone tissue, its possible role in preventing disease and its surprising ability to grow and adapt even into old age. We will learn to divide the body into just 14 Joint Segments and how to apply anatomical terms to accurately describe human movement.
Turning attention to the muscles, we will divide the body into just 10 easy-to-memorise functional muscle groups that are used in all Yoga Asana and learn how Asana accesses both Tension and Compression in the body structure to build healthy bone and muscle tissue.
Finally we explore the breath, how it impacts and guides movement and also how it can help us train and improve the functioning of our deepest postural muscles.
Throughout the course are a series of "Inner Journeys" in which you are invited to explore various anatomical and movement concepts using your own body. These "hands-on" experiments allow a much deeper understanding of what can sometimes be abstract and hard-to-grasp concepts and terms.
