Function over Aesthetic:

What is the purpose of the yoga poses we do in our practices? Do you understand their function, benefits, and how they can be used to empower others to remedy dis-ease in their body? The study of anatomy for functional yoga will take your practice and teaching to a new and more thorough level of understanding yoga beyond the traditional alignment of the poses.

 

The deeper understanding that will come by studying functional yoga will make you a more dynamic teacher. You will learn to teach to individuals rather than the masses.This course will evolve your understanding of yoga, propel you forward and provide a safer, and more functional practice for your students so that they can begin to connect with their bodies, remedy their disease, and heal.
