Fundamental Functional Anatomy for Yoga Teachers w/Ray Mucci (ERYT 200)boney

CEU’s: 17 credit hours

This six week course covers basic human physiology, musculoskeletal anatomy and anatomical terms.  


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 names, locations and actions will be explored individually, as well as in groups relative to the actions they produce in general and in yoga poses.  When this information is related to yoga poses, it will give teachers a deeper understanding of why they are using certain alignment cues, why students might deviate from neutral alignment.  


To further encourage information retention, the second, third, fourth and fifth week of the course will begin with a test of the previous week’s material, and each week will have a homework assignment.

The Art and Science of Skillful Sequencing w/Cindy Boulter (ERYT 200, RYT 500)

CEU’s: 17 credit hours

In this continuing education series you will learn a formula for sequencing that you can apply to any type of Yoga class, how to skillfully sequence towards a crescendo and how to design themed classes.

We will explore the following : Class architecture

  •  What makes a class well balanced and sattvic
  •  Fascial lines of the body and what order to open them
  •  Anatomical actions of poses
  •  What needs to be strengthened and what needs to be released
  •  Effective Counterbalancing
  • How to weave in class themes

Each week we will collectively design a skeleton of a class based on a formula that will take you through all the steps required to build a class that is sattvic and prepares the body for the crescendo and then unwinds any tension created.
