Was the anatomy section of your yoga teacher training a blur?
Did it leave you craving more?
Do you simply want to understand what you are doing on the mat?
Imagine this: You feel confident and competent in yoga anatomy and physiology in just 10 weeks.
Whether you bring this to the classroom as a teacher of asana or you bring this to your own mat for practice: Years of frustration -- dissolved.
🦴 Your cuing is optimized
🦴You individualize asana to each student's body as
🦴 You feel like a ninja, both exploring new approaches to asana, and chopping through all the "fake news" infiltrating the yoga anatomy space
Each week, enjoy a live (livestream) class led by a doctor of physical therapy and long time multi-disciplinary yoga teacher. You are live with a small cohort of your peers, with plenty of time to reflect, absorb, and ask questions.
Each of the 10 live sessions also gets recorded. You will have to all 10 recordings for the whole duration of the bootcamp and for a limited time afterward (because we need deadlines!).
Week over week, we build on the knowledge of the previous week. Like building a house, progress will be tangible.
There is a lot of "noise" in the yoga anatomy and movement space. Conflicting and non-evidence based information is everywhere, and it is exhausting.
This bootcamp will help you to distill a lot of that "noise" and cut through confusion.
Every Tuesday we will meet at 6:30pm Eastern Time (NY Time) on Zoom for 1.5 to 2 hours.
If you can't attend live, no problem. The session's recording will be posted within 2 hours, so you can watch the recording very soon afterward.
You'll have access to a group chat where you can ask questions as they arise throughout the week.
Most weeks will involve approximately a half hour of movement to break up the lecture.
In addition to lecture, some weeks will have handouts, quizzes to test your knowledge, and homework assignments to help you integrate what you learn.
When the program wraps, you'll have clear next steps for going deeper and getting ongoing support and education in anatomy.
When: Class starts Tuesday February 28, and runs for 10 Tuesdays through May 2, 2023* please note: dates and times are subject to change, but every effort will be made to stick to this original plan.
Where: Online via Zoom. Please have the Zoom application downloaded onto your device (computer will be easier than phone for seeing slides).
Continuing Education Hours: Yoga Teachers get 25 continuing education hours through this program (approximately 1.5-2 hours live time each week and a 0.5-1 hour of independent study, review and preparation).
Yoga Alliance (USA) requires that all registered yoga teachers complete at least 30 hours of continuing education every three years. Currently, you can fulfill 20 of those hours through "non-contact" means, like online study. And this course qualifies under the anatomy topic. Once you have completed this program, you will log in to the Yoga Alliance website and manually enter the program's hours and upload your certificate.
The following 10 part curriculum roughly follows what we will study each week.
The bootcamp builds on the latest information taught in our mentorship but in a smaller package.
Like a balsalmic reduction, you'll get the same learning in more concentrated format. The biggest distinction is that the mentorship, once you join, gives you access for life to ongoing office hours and the on demand recordings. Access to this bootcamp course material cuts off 30 days after our last live session.
Deadlines help many of us to participate more fully! This is especially true in the online courses space, where "access for life" often means we never fully finish anything.
But there is no either-or. At the end of this program, you will have the option to join the mentorship at simply the difference in cost. It's the best of both worlds. (P.S. If you joined our anatomy mentorship at ANY time in the past, and want to participate in these live sessions, simply email email@example.com)
Absolutely not. There will be regular yoga students and yoga teachers all in this together.
While we have had massage therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and medical doctors all complete similar programs of ours, there is the possibility that some of what you learn will be review.
Two things truly differentiate this bootcamp from other yoga anatomy programs in existence: 1) it is taught by a licensed doctor of physical therapy who continues to treat patients in a one one one setting and 2) your instructor has taught yoga anatomy for over a decade, keeps up with the research, and is not "selling" you on any particular style of yoga or even movement.
Due to the live classes, the small group set-up and the instructor's background, you will have the opportunity within this program to dive much deeper than in other anatomy courses in the yoga world.
