ASFYT-3: Kinesiology of Yoga Asana

Exploring a variety of yoga postures through the lens of functional anatomy.

Course Summary

Drawing upon the knowledge gained during the first two courses, in ASFYT-3 we’ll look at a few postures within every major category to explore such topics as: the general and unique benefits of each posture from a musculoskeletal perspective; which muscles are working and/or being stretched in each posture; the most common alignment issues that arise within each posture, as well as the potential anatomical causes of such issues; the safety considerations that might exist, along with an exploration of skillful techniques that can reduce the likelihood of injury.
