Your body is your temple. In this foundational course, we learn the basics about the human body—its make up and how it moves. This course is constructed to reduce fear and simplify learning, incorporating interactive elements to help you understand anatomy. This course is tailored for students who want a quick refresher or overview, and also for students who are newer to anatomy, attending their first teacher training or who feel self conscious about the subject matter. This course also serves as a primer for our Anatomy 101 and Anatomy 202 online courses. This course is accredited through Yoga Alliance and counts towards 20 hours of non-contact continuing education hours, which fulfills the entire 3-year requirement for teachers.

“I am super excited to join in on this course. I have some catching up to do but I do have scoliosis and am fused from T3 to L4 and it runs with my family. I hope to gain some knowledge for my own practice as well as to share with others.” —Elizabeth, Louisville Kentucky
“Your online courses are awesome! I [participate in] online courses with many other teachers, and I find that your courses offer way more resources, seem to be exceptionally current – rather than pre-planned, and relate to our interaction and feedback ( where you use threads from each week). [It is] truly inspiring, captivating and engaging, as well as encouraging, to learn more and to give more to our students and ourselves. After all, we are our own biggest students. I am so enthralled by your teaching, I wish I could do everything!” – Michelle Cross
