Anatomy for Asana Online Course

Element 2 Anatomy

We name yoga poses according to the shape that the body takes. That shape is determined entirely by the position of the skeleton’s many joints. Practicing and teaching asana works better with an understanding of the parts and forces that make then body’s shapes.

This series starts by developing a fluency in anatomical terms, followed by a guided tour of the musculoskeletal system, including information about special conditions like common anomalies, injury management and prevention; and modifying for pregnancy.
