Anatomy Course for Yoga Teachers with Gary Carter

Gary Carter shows in his yoga anatomy course how a thorough knowledge of anatomy can help teachers to make intelligent choices about the way they teach their pupils.

His workshops involve the use of props, illustrations, and hands-on work in class to help demonstrate the principles that underlie your movement practice. This course of experiential anatomy will run for nine weekends.

This 9 weekend yoga anatomy course for Yoga Teachers explores the anatomy of movement in relation to practice, movement analysis, 3-D work, and experiential anatomy. It will encourage yoga teachers to ‘see’ their students more clearly, thus helping with rehabilitative issues. The course aims to help yoga teachers take a flexible, intelligent approach to their specific field with individual students.
