Metrowest Yoga is offering a series of courses in addition to our Teacher Trainings throughout the year. Each of these trainings will focus on

CEU’s: 17 credit hours
This four week course covers basic musculoskeletal anatomy and anatomical terms. The course is designed for yoga teachers or anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of these topics. The material will primarily focus on anatomy as it pertains to yoga poses and movement.
The course will begin with basic anatomical terminology and an overview of bones, joints, and muscles and the actions they produce. New material will be covered each week, presented through lecture, discussion, images, skeletal models, palpation, and movement. Muscle locations and actions will be explored individually, as well as in groups relative to what they accomplish in yoga poses.
The depth to which anatomy is covered is also relative to the amount of time we
have. While it’s tempting to cram every session with as much info as possible, the intention here is to stick to the basics of yoga anatomy so that you will leave with a solid understanding of the material we covered, as well as some ways to expand that knowledge over time.
To further encourage information retention, the second, third and fourth week of the course will begin with a test of the previous week’s material, and a final exam will be handed out.
Dates: Mondays: 11/3, 11/10, 11/17, 12/1
