Yoga Anatomy
with Leslie Kaminoff

Wednesdays, 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Yoga Anatomy is made up of two one-year courses, each of which provides a practical grounding in the essentials of the anatomy of yoga practice with a particular emphasis on the relationship between breathing and healthy spinal function.

In alternate years we use different approaches to explore the material. During year one we explore the principles of yoga anatomy through a combination of lecture and demonstration. The second year is guided group practice followed by analysis of the teaching methodology.

Principles trimesters:

  • The fall session focuses on the anatomy and pressure mechanics of breathing, the three diaphragms and the thoracic and abdominal muscles.
  • The winter session covers the evolution and anatomy of spinal mechanics, the development of postural support and articular freedom.
  • The spring session deals with the articular anatomy of the limbs, pelvic and shoulder girdles and explores issues surrounding locomotion and arm support.
